New facility opened UK- and Austria-based Mondi has announced it has launched its first recycling laboratory at the company’s Frantschach mill in Austria. The producer aims to use the facility “to test the recyclability of paper and paper-based packaging using non-paper components such as coatings,” Mondi said in a statement.
“The ability to provide our customers with information on the recyclability of our products will be a key enabler in our efforts to develop more sustainable solutions and enhance our value proposition for customers. Currently, 78% of Mondi’s group wide portfolio is already either reusable, recyclable or compostable. This recycling lab enables us to move closer to our MAP2030 goals of making 100% of our products fulfil these requirements by 2025,” said Elisabeth Schwaiger, the head of R&D and IP Flexible Packaging at Mondi, as quoted in the statement.
The value of the latest investment in Frantschach was not disclosed.
