RecyClass certificate confirms the use of 100% recycled material in AIRplus® 100% Recycled films from Storopack
Metzingen, September 2023. Our AIRplus® 100% Recycled air cushions are now RecyClass certified. The certificate confirms the use of 100% recycled plastic in the entire product line of AIRplus® 100% Recycled films. This makes us one of the first manufacturers to achieve this high standard in the market. The certificate is recognized throughout Europe for all EPR (“Extended Producer Responsibility”) systems. With the AIRplus® 100% Recycled air cushions, we fully support the circular economy, comply with European regulation for plastics and help to avoid negative effects of plastic waste on the environment. The film offers the same excellent protective properties as conventional air cushions made of virgin raw material. This makes it ideal for companies that focus on both high-quality protective packaging for their own products and sustainability.
RecyClass certifies Storopack’s value chain
The entire value chain is audited by the RecyClass organization before it is certified. The certificate proves that the complete process from the raw material, through production to the sale of the final air cushions, the materials used consist of 100% recycled plastic. This increases transparency and customer confidence in AIRplus® 100% Recycled film.
Compared to film without recycled content, greenhouse gas emissions are reduced by 30 percent and water consumption by 57 percent over the whole life cycle. AIRplus® 100% Recycled can also be recycled several times and should be added to the recycling loop after use.
