Bemis Announces Encore Recyclable Pouch Packaging


Bemis Company has launched Encore ultra-clear recyclable film in the form of a clear standup pouch. The ultra-clear recyclable film is made of polyethylene, which was designed to be recycled through existing How2Recycle store drop-offs. This technology features low haze, good stiffness and high gloss.

John Wilson, Market Manager at Bemis said, ‘In comparison with prior offerings, this new Bemis technology provides the advantages of a standard standup pouch, with the added benefit of improved recyclability. It can also incorporate convenience features, such as press-to-close zippers. The film provides the clarity and transparency shoppers demand, and still runs on most standard existing manufacturing equipment.’
