Vacuum bags with optimum barrier properties have so far not been recyclable, due to their material mix consisting of polyamide and polyethylene. It is now ALLFO’s turn to introduce a vacuum bag featuring the renowned high barrier, while being fully recyclable. This particular bag type is manufactured from a recyclable polypropylene structure classified as ultra-pure in the AAA category. The sealing properties of the vacuum bags specially developed by ALLFO are equally convincing.
Vacuum bags produced by implementing this new formula can be identified, sorted out and processed into high-purity recyclate in state-of-the-art recycling plants. “This is the obvious next step in the right direction”, states Harald Gessinger, Sales Manager at ALLFO. With regard to the latest generation of vacuum bags, the company has now received the highest level of EU-wide certification from the cyclos-http institute.
Environmentally friendly alternative
The environmentally friendly innovation aims to meet the significantly increased demand for alternatives that minimize environmental impact. Research and development of the new formula have been initiated and conducted in the company’s own laboratory and application technology centre. As in the past, particularly sensitive food products such as meat, sausage, fish or seafood are packaged in these bags. The same applies to cheese, potatoes, ready meals or vegetables, all of which will remain fresh for longer and are protected against spoilage both during transport and on retail shelves.
