Is dissolvable packaging the future?

Dissolvable packaging is designed to replace conventional plastic bags, films, labels, and pouches. This end-of-life solution is non-toxic and leaves no trace of microplastics. Upstream innovation means this packaging 'designs out' the waste often associated with plastic bags, and also means consumers are not forced to deal with finding a solution to plastic waste. Use our Foresights report to understand the future of dissolvable packaging, and formulate winning strategies for the road ahead. This report covers:
  • Drawbacks and advantages to dissolvable packaging
  • Current industry applications
  • Consumer insight into priorities surrounding sustainability and packaging
  • The pathway and considerations for dissolvable packing in terms of mass adoption and commercialization

The film comprises 51% recycled content, with a minimum of 31% PCR. It is 100% recyclable.

The company moved to bottles with 51% recycled plastic (RPET) and in accordance with the government proposals for plastic packaging by utilising a sustainable solution for the collation and multi-packing of goods.

RPC bpi protec launched X-EnviroShrink to meet the growing demand from consumers, manufacturers and governments for packaging that minimises its impact on the environment.

X-EnviroShrink uses the Sustane recycled polymer from RPC bpi recycled products. The product’s ultra-low carbon footprint allows the company to set a new standard in shrink film technology by combining recycled content with full recyclability.

Radnor Hills has decided to adopt X-EnviroShrink for its shrink-wrapped cases of bottled waters to meet its commitment to protect the local and global environment.

Radnor Hills managing director William Watkins said: “Ensuring that our activities and products minimise any environmental impact is fundamental to our business.

“When RPC bpi protec approached us with X-EnviroShrink, the ability to integrate further recycled content into our packaging solutions was extremely appealing and we are delighted with the results and the improvements it has made to our sustainability footprint.”

“Ensuring that our activities and products minimise any environmental impact is fundamental to our business.”

X-EnviroShrink is available in unprinted and printed versions, while it can be used for a wide variety of products and markets such as beverage cans or bottles, canned food and cartons.

It enables the use of high-speed packing methods as a single or twin lane, helping manufacturers to maximise cost-effectiveness and speed-to-market as goods are shipped to supermarket shelves.

The company’s recycling plants reprocess more than 135,000t of waste from industrial, commercial, agricultural and domestic sources, making it the largest recycler of PE films in Europe and provide a circular solution to customers.

RPC bpi protec managing director David Lumley said: “The sustainability of all packaging is a paramount requirement for brands and consumers.

“We are delighted to have Radnor Hills as one of the first users of X-EnviroShrink and, through this help, the company both reuse plastic packaging and deliver the protection, functionality and cost-effectiveness that are equally essential for their bottled waters – and all within a fully recyclable film.”
