Why Recycle Plastics

According to the Environment Agency, nearly three million tonnes of waste plastic are produced in the UK each year, only 7% of which is recycled. This is approximately 11% of household waste and the rate is set to increase dramatically. Download this document to see why we should recycle our plastic.


Materials and the Environment

The packaging industry has been designing products with waste prevention in mind for years. Improvements in packaging design and in production techniques have resulted in huge reductions in material usage over many years. Download this document to find out how plastics impact on the environment.


How is Plastic Recycled

On arrival at the recycling plant plastic materials are sorted to type and colour and depending upon the condition of the material it is then either dry granulated, or washed and granulated to remove any labelling or residue product.

LINPAC Packaging has responded to reports in some publications with reference to the company’s packaging film manufacturing facility at Pontivy.

The LINPAC Packaging facility in Pontivy has become a European centre of excellence for the production of packaging film.  Recent investments in the plant have included a seven-layer film extrusion line to produce sophisticated barrier lidding film for meat packs.

LINPAC Packaging gave a fascinating insight into emerging global trends affecting the food supply chain and its related sectors at its recent Fresh! European Packaging Seminars across 5 European countries.
