The Future of Recycling

RethINK Packaging

We are pioneers in deinking technology and expertise

The problem

Without recyclable packaging, there is no incentive to invest into recycling infrastructure. However, without a good recycling infrastructure there is limited upside to producing recyclable packaging. This creates a chicken and egg situation, limiting progress. This is particularly true in the context of deinking. Despite a strong demand for high-quality transparent recyclates, hot-washing infrastructure remains scarce and a large portion of print structures is non-deinkable.

The solution

Siegwerk aims to address this from both sides through industry collaboration to develop design for deinking standards and through the development of deinking and delamination products such as washable inks and primers that have been specially formulated to be fit for purpose, allowing reformulation towards deinkable products per customer request. On the other hand, we address the infrastructure problem through providing our expert process know-how and specialized deinking chemistry.

Siegwerk has years of pioneering expertise in solutions that enable the deinking of paper and board substrates. We are expanding that expertise to encompass a broad range of plastic substrates, from rigid and flexible packaging to labeled PET bottles. 

Our solutions are an invaluable component of recyclable packaging, and includes award winning projects
