L’EcoAllene® is a new and innovative material derived from recycling polylaminates (i.e. made up of a plastic layer and a metal layer.
- 1. A new ecological plastic material is created, with a wide variety of uses, recycling objects which would otherwise end up in incinerators and landfills: cartons for drinks and packaging for liquid foods, bags for oily products, packaging for candy, “non-compostable” capsules for hot drinks, etc.
- 2. Products are created through a patent-protected production process, granted by the Swiss company REPLAN Global Sagl, which is the exclusive holder of the trademark, patent, technical experience, and processes used in creating EcoAllene®.
- 3. The innovation lies in the production process for treating waste*: instead of separating the two or more components (plastic film + metal film), they are kept aggregated in a new formula through the patented process.
- 4. This innovation reduces the cost of recycling, allowing for an important competitive advantage of the end product in terms of marketability, compared to the material which is its direct competitor, virgin plastic derived from crude oil.
