Dow, Mespack Collaborate In Recyclable Flexible Packaging Effort

Each year, 86 billion stand-up pouches are manufactured.  Now, Dow and Mespack say the two will partner in an effort to develop flexible stand-up pouches made of mono-material films that are recyclable, helping brand owners and converters meet their sustainability goals.

 
According to reports, the new recyclable pouches will be used in various applications including condiments, shampoos and body lotions, detergents, baby food, and more.  Mespack Managing Director Guillem Clofent said they are excited about the collaboration because it is important to the company to support customers in the endorsement of flexible packaging that's biodegradable, compostable, and recyclable.  Clofent said Mespack hopes to create a revolution in sustainable packaging by collaborating with Dow and other leaders such as Velcro, Menshen, and Venvirotech.
 
Mespack's 180 FE hf/f/s machine is slated to be prepared to showcase the environmentally friendly solution and test customer film during the first quarter of 2020.  The machine will be installed at Dow's Freeport Pack Studio in Freeport, TX, bringing together leading packaging designers, equipment manufacturers, and prototyping specialists in an effort to quickly move forward with commercialization of the innovative new packaging solutions.
