INEOS Olefins & Polymers Europe has announced the expansion of the Recycl-IN range of products to include flexible packaging solutions with over 60% recycled content.


INEOS Olefins & Polymers has partnered with leading waste management company Saica Natur in a supply agreement for recycled LDPE and LLDPE. The long-term agreement will help INEOS to serve the growing demand for increased levels of recycled product in sustainable, virgin quality flexible packaging.


INEOS Olefins & Polymers has been developing high-performance polyethylene Recycl-IN resins.

Through this partnership, INEOS Olefins & Polymers has been able to develop high-performance polyethylene Recycl-IN resins to meet the needs of converters, brand owners and retailers, to use more than 60% recycled plastics in very demanding applications such as stretch and lamination films typically used in flexible pouches for detergent and personal care products.


This new addition to the Recycl-IN range is for use in flexible packaging and pushes technical boundaries by incorporating more than 60% post-consumer recyclate (PCR). Recycl-IN combines the recycled plastic with highly engineered virgin polymers. The result has properties equivalent to virgin materials, whilst meeting the demand for an increase in the use of recycled materials.


“Together with Saica Natur we have the innovation, drive, know-how and capability to move towards a circular economy for plastics in flexible packaging. Saica are experts in recycling post-consumer plastic film. INEOS has the polymer science expertise to improve the quality, specification, and performance of the finished product,” said Rob Ingram, CEO INEOS Olefins & Polymers North Europe.


Victor Sanz, Director General of Saica Natur, added, “With this agreement, we are moving towards a circular economy model through the use of resources in a more sustainable and efficient way. Waste is transformed into a secondary raw material that will be then incorporated into new high quality products.”
