“CNG is excited to partner with Revolution to bring food-grade LLDPE post-consumer resins to the market. Revolution’s proprietary recycling process, combined with CNG’s expertise in developing films with post-consumer resins enables brands to transition to post-consumer recycled materials without sacrificing performance,” said Scott Hammer, CNG’s Director of Corporate Sustainability.
As the need for sustainable consumer packaging grows worldwide, the two environmentally conscious manufacturers share a vision to help brands achieve their corporate global commitments and meet legislative mandates requiring post-consumer content.
Being members of the U.S. Plastics Pact, a solutions-driven consortium launched as part of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s global Plastics Pact network, Revolution and CNG’s offering fills a need for businesses that package, produce or sell food products to include PCR content in their flexible film food packaging looking to reach the target goal of 30% recycled content by 2025.
CNG will offer Revolution’s Encore® food-grade PCR-LLDPE resin for application in its film products, which include stand-up pouches, pre-made bags, and roll stock applications for both vertical form fill and seal (VFFS) and horizontal form fill and seal (HFFS) packaging. When produced with Revolution’s high-quality certified PCR resin, CNG films offer 40% or more recycled content, without sacrificing performance.
“We are proud to have developed a process to manufacture and offer high-grade PCR-LLDPE for customers committed to using recycled content in consumer packaging,” says Tammy Rucker, Revolution’s Vice President of Sustainable Materials. “And our partnership with CNG is a significant step forward to narrow the gap in the demand for post-consumer recycled content in plastic packaging for food-contact applications.”
