Coveris, a global packaging manufacturer, has formed a strategic partnership with environmental service provider Interzero to bolster circular economy initiatives.  

The collaboration is set to close the loop in plastics recycling, aligning with both companies’ waste elimination goals. 

Coveris has reportedly made significant progress with its No Waste vision, particularly through the introduction of ReCover, a process of recycling waste to promote a circular economy for plastics.  

Coveris CEO Christian Kolarik said: “We are excited about this partnership with Interzero as it aligns perfectly with our No Waste vision. By integrating well-sorted post-consumer waste into our recycling processes, we are taking a significant step towards completely closing the loop.” 

In June last year, Coveris opened a ReCover recycling facility in Lincolnshire, UK, for printed polyethylene film recycling.  

As part of the latest collaboration, Interzero will supply its collected and sorted materials to Coveris’ ReCover facilities, where they will undergo a mechanical recycling process to produce high-quality recycled resins.

The resins produced through this collaborative work will then be incorporated into a range of Coveris’ packaging products, including its Duralite R collation films.  

The partnership is poised to create a competitive edge in the value chain, contributing to key sustainability objectives such as waste prevention, carbon dioxide footprint reduction, securing of raw materials, and compliance with governmental packaging and waste directives. 

Interzero CEO Jan Kroker said: “Collaborating with Coveris allows us to leverage our expertise in waste collection and sorting to support the creation of high-quality recycled resins. Together, we can make a substantial impact on reducing waste. The circular economy is a joint project that benefits everyone. We are shaping the circular economy of tomorrow – for a world without waste.” 

Interzero, renowned for its expertise in closing product, material, and logistics loops, operates with the largest sorting capacity in Europe and has approximately 2,000 employees.
