Systems Labelling’s latest product development, the Ecoplas label, is said to offer a real alternative to paper labels when used on plastic bottles. Recycling trials have proven synthetic labels peel away during the recycling process resulting in over 90% label removal, says the company. The waste labels are then recycled into polyolefin compounds, whereas adhesive paper labels break down and create a pulp which causes colour contamination and has to be collected and sent to landfill. Environmental benefits apart, Systems Labelling also claims it can offer the Ecoplas synthetic label at no on-cost when compared to paper. Business development director Stephen Lloyd added: “Our infrastructure and continuous appetite for NPD is a core strength. This platform enables us to both generate new innovations but also industrialise labelling solutions effectively”.
