Emballator introduces rPP Soft Grey as a leading, recyclable material in 2021Posted 2021-01-21
Emballator is now introducing their new material, rPP Soft Grey. The material is 100 percent recyclable, where at least 90 percent is made out of recycled plastic, and 75 percent comes from material waste. For the past two years, the company has been focusing on developing a new material and has now found a product that matches their customer’s high expectations.
Mats Jeppsson, the innovation manager at Emballator Plastics & Innovation , emphasizes that their main focus in the work process has been the environment and to create a circular economy. The purpose of the new material is to offer products that have both high quality- and safety standards, as well as minimize the impact on the environment. In comparison to the previously used fossil-based material, the new recyclable material decreases the carbon dioxide emissions, from the raw material to the finished product, by 56 percent. Also, Emballator has made sure that transport emission and other extra waste, will not increase while using rPP Soft Grey.
Furthermore, the renewable material has had a low or no impact on the product characteristics. Due to the
light shade of the material, it provides an offset decoration that allows the customers to get their unique
printing on the product without the need for a label. The advantages of rPP Soft Grey has influenced more
customers to choose the new material. Emballator is confident that a larger proportion of their customers will
gradually switch to rPP Soft Grey in 2021, says Richard Johansson, marketing- & sales director at
Emballator Lagan Plastic AB.
Finally, Emballator will continue to strive to create products that are focusing on environment-friendly
materials and that is excluding any unnecessary waste. Emballator is constantly working to be one step
ahead of the environmental challenges, in order to help its customers to improve their environmental
