Sealed Air has developed what it says is the world’s first food-grade soft plastic film containing Certified Circular Resins (CCR). The new CRYOVAC Brand rBDF S10 film is made using up to 30% food-grade CCR, which is certified by the International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC).
According to Seald Air the 21 microns ‘ultra-thin’ barrier is a third lighter than widely used HFFS packs and three times thinner than other thermoformable films. The high gloss finish and transparent clarity of CRYOVAC Brand rBDF S10 is designed to help enhance the appearance of food to drive sales and reduce waste.
Leak-proof closures, hermetic sealing and a protective barrier further minimise waste by safeguarding food integrity and extending shelf-life.
The film packaging can be used to wrap foods with or without trays. The overwrap film with modified atmosphere is ideal for fresh red meat, poultry, fish, smoked and processed meat, cheese, convenience food and ready meals.
Arnaud Brunet, fluids and adjacent markets platform director at Sealed Air, said: “The innovative use of CCR in CRYOVAC Brand rBDF S10 film perfectly complements the shrink packaging’s ultra-thin, high abuse, mechanical resistance and anti-fog performance. Together, these form a packaging system well-aligned with a circular economy that’s aiming to lower waste and increase resourcefulness."
The company has set a target for creating 100% recyclable or reusable packaging solutions by 2025.
According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PET consumption reached 52,71o tonnes in September 2020, down by 27% year on year. Overall PET consumption in Russia reached 530,750 tonnes in the first nine months of 2020, down by 22% year on year.
