Songwon CEO Maurizio Butti said: “With RPC bpi nordfolien, we have found an innovative partner who can support us to live SONGWON’s vision: sound and sustainable growth for all our stakeholders in harmony with the interests of our planet and its people.”

“Songwon is the very first chemical company to use packaging film with such high-recycled material content for their PE bags.”

During the last year, recycled 20kg bags were trialled to assess the quality standards as well as evaluate if it meets client requirements of strength, colour stability and handling.

In the following months, the company will carry out the process to switch to the new form of sustainable packaging.

RPC bpi nordfolien key account manager for Business Unit Chemical Industry Christian Knappik said: “Songwon is the very first chemical company to use packaging film with such high-recycled material content for their PE bags.

“We are pleased to share our expertise with them and to help extend the reach of such technology, in order to contribute to preserving the environment for all of us.”
