Leading global packaging and paper group Mondi, along with cheese packaging company Hazeleger Kaas and brand owner Westland Kaas, worked together to package the well-known Dutch Maaslander brand in EnvelopeForm, a new fully recyclable polypropylene (PP) mono-material packaging solution. Most sliced cheese in the Netherlands is still packaged in mixed material film, which is difficult to recycle. This new packaging has a PP thermoforming top and bottom web, and a PP label instead of a paper label, so that the new solution can be recycled in its entirety. The solution has been certified as recyclable by the German institute cyclos-HTP.

SABIC and Local Motors conduct feasibility study of recycling scrap thermoplastic parts and shavings from 3D printing process
With the desire to improve the circularity of large format additive manufacturing (LFAM), SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, and Local Motors, a next-generation vehicle manufacturer, completed a joint study on the feasibility of recycling scrap thermoplastic parts and shavings from the 3D printing process. The study explored more sustainable alternatives to landfilling large, printed parts in anticipation of wider adoption of LFAM. It included analyzing the printability and mechanical properties of SABIC’s LNP™ THERMOCOMP™ AM reinforced compound, used by Local Motors, after being printed, reclaimed, ground and reprocessed into pellet form. The study determined that material from post-production parts and scrap can potentially be reused in LFAM or other processes, such as injection molding or extrusion, at amounts up to 100 percent. These insights can help identify a feasible path to circularity and an extended lifecycle for materials used by the LFAM industry.
