Parkside launches compostable film range

16:16 2016

Parkside-Compostable-494x330Yorkshire-based Parkside has launched a range of paper and film barrier lamination films that are fully compostable and suitable for both home and industrial composting.

The company claims to be the first flexible packaging firm to produce a range of barrier laminates that have completed the rigorous disintegration and eco-toxicity testing for home composting with recognised European laboratory, OWS.

Flexible packaging materials are often unsuitable for recycling due to their multilayer lamination or co-extrusion nature as the recycler cannot separate the different materials.

As a result, many flexible packaging products end up going to landfill or being incinerated.

Developed under the brand Park-2-Nature, the compostable laminates are manufactured from sustainable sources whilst remaining aesthetically pleasing, offering excellent graphic shelf appeal for retailers and brand owners to drive sales.

Steve McCormick, new product development director at Parkside, said: “Environmentally aware brand owners, retailers and consumers have a choice of barrier packs that can be disposed of in a composting environment. The Park-2-Nature compostable range is disposable through both composting and anaerobic digestion, offering a viable end-of-life solution for non-recyclable packaging and avoiding disposal in landfill.”
