Dark film isn’t friendly for the environment. Or it’s just a false assumption?

Carbon footprint (CF) calculation study in Retal Baltic Films just showed that such assumption is not quite applicable to all plastics and products.

We’ve made the calculations with different types of our films and found out some interesting results.

But before that, some information to better understand the concept.

Black or brown APET film is a perfect grade for using the post industrial waste for recycling purposes. To produce it, we can collect not only our, but also client’s (brand owner, thermoformer) production waste in film or flake form and produce a new film. By doing this we can return up to 40% of plastic, used in production.  It’s not something new to be done, but new is what we found out about it.
