SP GROUP AND THE RECICLACTIVE PROJECT
Our commitment to finding packaging that is increasingly sustainable, has led us to participate in several major projects including RECICLACTIVE PROJECT, developed in conjunction with EL POZO ALIMENTACIÓN, and which aims to find sustainable solutions made from active, recyclable materials that are of particular interest to the meat industry.
In general, multi-layer packaging comes in a wide range of combinations. SP GROUP’s materials have between 3 and 9 layers, which gives them excellent mechanical and physical properties (lightweight, thin, improved heat resistance, moisture barrier, oxygen barrier, etc.), while at the same time preserving the products longer, lengthening their shelf life and reducing food waste.
The waste from multi-layer plastic packaging, however, poses a real environmental threat. This, combined with the objective of creating sustainable packaging that maintains the desired features, led to the birth of the RECICLACTIVE project. The project’s maxim is to use plastic waste for other extrusion applications for greater added value. By doing so, we meet the goals set by the European Commission in matters of sustainability, known as Horizon 2030/2050.
We are continuing to move forward and are committed to further developing our R&D and Innovation department. Please get in touch if you would like to know more about this project.
