Recyclability Assessment of Barrier Coating – Preliminary Results

  • Aticelca, with a support of a network of laboratories, developed the “Aticelca 501 System”, a recyclability assessment of paper products and paper based packaging. Based on 4 recyclability levels (A+, A, B and C) plus the not-recyclable, this system is helping companies in developing paper products and paper based packaging with better recyclability performances, giving a solid ground to their communication to the consumers.
  • While traditional laminated paper are well known and technologies are already in place in any paper mill for separating the fibres from the plastic layer, paper mills are still in a learning stage regarding the chance to recycle barrier coatings and counteracting the possible negative effects.
  • Barrier coatings may have different behaviours during the recycling process and some seems to be more compatible with actual recycling technologies compared to others. We will present few preliminary results on the way we intend to address the assessment of recyclability of barrier paper
