Jindal Films Starts Production of Its Latest Sustainable Packaging Innovation, Ethy-LyteTM BOPE Films, in Europe

Jindal Films is now producing its latest sustainable packaging innovation, Ethy-LyteTM BOPE films, in Europe, following increased demand from a broad range of customers in the region.

Ethy-LyteTM bi-axially oriented, high density polyethylene (BOPE) films reportedly enable the creation of fully recyclable mono-PE packaging solutions. The solutions are designed to replace OPET or OPA films in lamination with PE sealant films.

Ethy-LyteTM is based on a breakthrough technology enabled by an advanced bi-axial orientation process that transforms polyethylene into a range of films which deliver outstanding heat resistance and excellent mechanical and optical properties for exceptional printing, converting, packaging performance and product protection.

Laminated with PE sealants, it reportedly creates fully recyclable mono-PE packaging structures that are compatible with existing and expected future recycling streams.

The Ethy-LyteTM range of films offers excellent performance on a wide range of packaging formats, including: VFFS, HFFS and SUP. The main market segments include dry food, pet food, frozen food, processed food, detergents, personal care, non-food.

“Guidelines from CEFLEX and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation (EMF) recommend that polyolefin containing laminates should not include, amongst others, paper, PET, nylon, and aluminum foil to enable efficient sorting and mechanical recycling. Innovations such as Ethy-LyteTM will help the industry meet increasing demand across Europe for ’designed for recycling’ mono-material solutions,” said Mirek Tokaj, marketing director, Jindal Films.
