The packaging and consumer goods division of German company Henkel has launched EPIX technology to support sustainable packaging materials.

EPIX’s technology portfolio features materials and chemistry solutions that improve paper quality for products ranging from straws and cups to eCommerce packaging. It also drives sustainable alternatives to single-use convenience items.

The patented technology is designed to help paper deliver increased functionality, enhance performance and enable companies’ to maintain the package’s sustainability and recyclability.

Henkel has partnered with online retail major Amazon to employ EPIX technology to develop a single-stream, curbside recyclable package.

Henkel packaging corporate vice-president Michel Bilodeau said: “Henkel is proud of its shared commitment to the environment with Amazon in advancing sustainable and innovative packaging solutions, especially given the increase in purchases and deliveries associated with Prime Days.

“At Henkel, we understand the changing market dynamics and consumers’ desire for more sustainable products.”

Currently, the EPIX sustainable packaging technology is deployed by Amazon in selected markets.

The company noted that the package created using EPIX technology has received the ‘widely recycled’ classification. It is expected to soon carry the How2Recycle nationally harmonised label.

Last month, Henkel expanded its portfolio with the launch of an adhesive solution called Loctite Liofol LA 2798 for high-performance packaging applications.

In May, the German company developed a fully recyclable black plastic packaging solution in collaboration with its supplier Ampacet.
