Project PrintCY

Innovative solutions for a circular economy

The Initiative

PrintCYC is a value chain initiative for the recycling of printed films. The members set themselves high goals for the recycling of printed plastic films.

The need for circular economy solutions for plastic packaging requires the packaging industry to take an active role in ensuring circularity – starting from design, following the entire life cycle. Project members joined forces to research and test new ways for creating circular economy solutions based on post-industrial waste from printed plastic films in the most cost-effective manner.

The project group has achieved remarkable results regarding the recycling of printed plastic films and processing of recyclate.
