Winpak Releases White Paper on Value of Polypropylene Packaging

Winpak Ltd. (“Winpak” or the “Company”) co-authored a White Paper with Circular Matters on the value of polypropylene (PP) in packaging segments.  The paper provides an overview of polypropylene’s unique performance properties, the extent to which it is currently recycled, end-use trends for recycled PP, and steps that can be taken to improve recycling collection access and ensure the continuing use of PP in packaging.

Winpak is a founding member of the Polypropylene Recycling Coalition along with other members of the packaging value chain like retailers, recyclers, and resin manufacturers.  The Company sees PP as a leading resin for essential packaging in food & beverage, dairy, protein, and healthcare markets. Polypropylene’s combination of thermal, mechanical, and barrier properties make it an excellent choice for a variety of products to reduce food waste and keep food safe and fresh.  Polypropylene is also one of the lowest emitters of greenhouse gas (GHG) of all plastic resins.

“Any real change in the industry begins with education”, states Phillip Crowder, Winpak’s Director, Corporate Sustainability. “I’m thankful for the opportunity to work with Circular Matters in creating this White Paper.  Our goal is the paper provides important knowledge on the value of polypropylene in promoting a Circular Economy for packaging”.
