"Recycling" - Making the best of a limited resource

October 27,2022

As brands and consumers become more aware of environmental protection, beverage, chemical, food, beer and other head enterprises have been testing paper-based packaging such as paper bottles, paper boxes, paper bags, etc. A change around "paper instead of plastic" is quietly taking place in various industries. Paper packaging products industry is also in continuous optimization and upgrading. Renewable, recyclable, biodegradable products will soon replace traditional plastic packaging.

WBBC(Water Based Barrier Coating is a green, plastic-free coating on the paper surface, which has high barrier properties, reduces the adhesion of water on the paper surface, and has strong hydrophobicity. It can replace laminated paper or plastic film and can be used in disposable packaging. The plastic-free coating does not contain plastic components and is biodegradable.

What are the advantages of plastic-free coated paper compared to traditional pe coated paper in terms of recycling?

1: Infrastructure

PE-coated paper cannot be recycled with other paper products because the PE coating needs to be separated from the paper before it can be recycled. However, most recycling centers do not have the infrastructure to separate the coating from the paper. And, the technology is specialized and expensive and may not be affordable for other mills in different parts of the world.

2: PE raw material

PE pellets are stuck in different filters in the recycling plant and need to be thoroughly cleaned periodically to keep the machines running. The cleaning process hinders the productivity of the plant because in most cases it needs to be done manually.

3: High cost of recycling

The cost of recycling coated paper products is very high, compared to the value and cost of raw materials for coated paper products, it is not reasonable to invest so much in recycling products.

As a result, most recycling plants do not have sufficient incentive to recycle coated paper products and instead send them to landfills. To solve all these problems associated with recycling coated paper products, WBBC was introduced.WBBC products do not need to be recycled in special facilities. Instead, they can be recycled along with other paper products from recycling plants around the world. They are also more sustainable, plastic-free and environmentally friendly than other coating materials. All these advantages make WBBC one of the best and most environmentally friendly paper coating solutions.
