MOSCOW (MRC) - The Tatarstan company Danaflex plans to switch to recyclable packaging by 2025, RBK reports.
The Ministry of Ecology of the Republic of Tatarstan is confident that it is quite possible to do this by the announced date, but all the advantages will not appear immediately.
"We have a number of successful recyclable solutions in our portfolio and are promoting the concept of Non-existent package or“ Packaging that was not there. ”Recyclable packaging for the food and non-food industry is made of a mono-material polypropylene or polyethylene. easy to recycle packaging and create something new from it. The need for sustainable packaging solutions is clear. We are now working with our clients on projects to offer sustainable solutions to the end consumer. The strength, barrier properties, print quality and tactile properties of packaging are preserved " - said the head of the company Airat Bashirov.
The company intends to increase the share of collection and recyclability of the material. The idea is to mark the packaging with a wide, bright green stripe visible to the eye, which will distinguish recyclable from non-recyclable packaging.
Earlier it was reported that Danaflex (Tatarstan) plans to build a new plant on the territory of the special economic zone "Alabuga" in Tatarstan. It is planned to create a new packaging plant on the territory of the special economic zone. The volume of investments is over 4.5 billion rubles.

This is the reason for the general trend of transition of other types of marking (self-adhesive, dry label, direct print, etc.) to IML label.
