Recyclable | Mono-material | Barrier Solution With recyclability as a driving force, we have designed and recently launched in the market a new generation of flexible packaging solutions: X-CYCLE. This recycle-ready, barrier films range that we have developed is now being further reinforced with a complete series of mono-material solutions destined for the PE recycling stream: X-CYCLE PE.
More than 120 Hatzopoulos employees and their family members participated this year in the 14th International Marathon "Alexander the Great" to run for a good cause! The run took place on 14.04.2019 gathering a total of 16.800 runners at this annual athletic city event of historic and cultural significance. We are more than proud of our running team, particularly this year, as their run provided important support to the organization "Smile of a Child"!
Introducing X-CYCLE: the next generation of recycle-ready barrier laminates _____ The Europe-wide EU Strategy for Plastics in the Circular Economy, developed to transform the way plastic products are designed, produced, used and recycled, sets a clear goal: all plastic packaging should be recyclable by 2030. To achieve this ambitious vision, the Strategy foresees actions to improve the economics and quality of plastic recycling; to curb plastic waste and littering; to drive investments and innovation; and to harness global action. The role that flexible packaging producers and converters have to play towards this transformation is indeed more than critical. Moreover, global concern on plastic pollution is constantly rising with consumers increasingly demanding specific actions to be taken by the packaging industry. At Hatzopoulos, we always focus on improving packaging design and on innovating to make our plastic products more environmental-friendly and easier to recycle. In response to the requirements set by the European Commission as well as our customers globally, our dedicated R&D team has developed a series of films that are recycle-ready: X-Cycle.
