Ceflex Pleased about More than Hundred Participants
More and More Companies are Joining
Ceflex, the consortium of companies, associations and organisations collaborating to enhance the performance of flexible packaging in the circular economy in Europe, by designing and advancing better system solutions, has reached a new landmark with stakeholder numbers over one hundred. The journey started in January 2017 with 26 stakeholders.
The 100th to sign up was the flexible packaging provider RPC-bpi group, Zele, Belgium. Other companies who have now joined to work with the consortium include Herbold Meckesheim, Germany, a recycling machine supplier.
This increased interest is also coming from outside Europe with India (Polyplex, Sumilon) and Thailand (The Siam Cement Public Company Limited (SCG)) all now participating. “This shows the relevance of Ceflex´s Vision for Europe to companies from the other parts of the world where the circular economy is starting to be recognised as the way forward for the plastic packaging industry,” said Graham Houlder, the project coordinator.
The Ceflex Vision is that, in 2020, there will be a comprehensive sustainability and circular economy roadmap for flexible packaging in Europe. This includes widely recognised design guidelines and a robust approach to measure, demonstrate and communicate the significant value flexible packaging adds to the circular economy. In addition, in 2025, there will be an established collection, sorting and reprocessing infrastructure/economy across Europe for flexible packaging based on end of life technologies and processes which deliver the best economic and environmental outcome for a circular economy.
