Beginning from next year, the parties will create the facilities in a bid to achieve a circular solution focused on the community.

The community-based model will provide supply chain transparency to all participants.

ePac runs 14 community-based flexible packaging facilities in the US with mainly small and medium-sized companies as customers.

According to the company, every package can be serialised with a unique code with the help of digital printing. This enables tracking packages from production to reuse.

Data can be collected leveraging IoT/Blockchain technology to provide tracking information to brands and retailers.

ePac CEO Jack Knott said: “The reason we started ePac was to play a small part in rebuilding our communities; our relationship with RPT will allow us to continue in that direction with a reliable, sustainable, and transparent solution.”

RPT has developed proprietary formulations and patented technology to produce “high demand products from co-mingled plastics”.

Designed to reduce handling and carbon footprint, the platform enables direct consumer engagement and traceability.

RePurpose Technologies CEO. Claudine Osipow said: “I’m excited to be a part of the team and the collaboration with ePac that allows everyone to take action and be part of the solution.”

In June this year, ePac Flexible Packaging announced plans to open a new facility near Sacramento, serving the Northern California area.
