European supplier LC Packaging has collaborated with Veolia Netherlands to globally minimise residual waste streams associated with its flexible packaging.

The strategic partnership is aimed at creating a circular programme that will optimise the recovery and upcycling of flexible packaging after use.

Both entities are currently implementing the circular programme under a pilot phase along with a selected number of LC Packaging’s customers.

As part of the deal, Veolia will oversee reverse logistics operations, the recycling of recovered packaging, and the conversion of these products into high-quality compounds.

LC Packaging CEO Lucas Lammers said: “Our goal is to minimise and recuperate the waste associated with our packaging. At our own production location, we already recycle up to 80% of our production waste and, with our WorldBag reconditioning service, we are able to recondition certain types of big bags up to six times.

“The recyclability of a packaging product depends on the materials used and the design of the packaging itself, but also on the product that is packaged in it and the available infrastructure and after-use solutions on the location where the packaging ends-up.
