Pigmea’s latest innovations in recyclable and compostable films

Plant-based compostable biopolymers, twist and recyclable materials, sealable paper and OPO-HS structures; these are just some of the innovations that Pigmea unveiled during the All4Pack exhibition hosted in Paris from 26th to 29th of November; materials designed to substitute polyester and facilitate the recycling of complex flexible packaging. Emballage, recently renamed as All4Pack, is a biannual exhibition focused on food packaging which gathers the most innovative ideas of many companies of the European food packaging sector.

Pigmea found in the exhibition the most appropriate environment to launch its latest innovations: materials with lower environmental impact following the growing trend in Europe regarding the use of recyclable and compostable materials. These materials have great potential, given the increasingly higher awareness of the food sector on the importance of eco-friendly materials. Pigmea provides packaging solutions for those products needing lower or higher protection barrier, individually-packed products for which a recyclable overpack is being looked for, recyclable twist films for sweets and confectioneries and complex structures in which polyester, a non-recyclable material, can be substituted for other materials which are indeed recyclable.

Likewise, the exhibition saw the launching of Pigmea’s IV Range materials, with selective permeabilities which allow longer shelf life of fresh products and ready-to-eat food.

Pigmea attended the exhibition in a shared stand with Diseños NT, the mother company of the Diseños NT Group, which displayed in All4Pack its lastest innovations in reusable bags made of paper, non woven and laminated non woven.
