Plantic Technologies Ltd., North Andover, Mass., developed what is said to be the first renewable and recyclable ultra-high barrier packaging format, the Plantic ecoPlantic eco packaging Plastic R.

This new material format combines PET and Plantic biodegradable film to provide a packaging material that features ultra high-gas barrier properties and is made from up to 60% renewable materials. Eco Plastic R trays and roll stock require no investment in new processing or packaging technology and can be directly substituted for existing materials into the supply chain. They are a drop-in replacement for a range of traditional plastics used in modified atmosphere and ultra-high barrier packaging. The rigid trays and roll stock are offered in a high-clarity transparent form as well as a variety of colors and multi-color formats.
