Association of Plastics Recyclers (APR) acknowledges recyclability of PE-based film with UBE’s PA6/66 based on Critical Guidance Recognition

February 13th, 2023

UBE Corporation Europe S.A.U.  announced today it has received Critical Guidance Recognition from the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR).

UBE’s innovation is a PE-based multilayer film with enhanced mechanical and barrier properties conferred by a PA6/66 inner layer and the presence of PE-based tie layers grafted with maleic anhydride (MAH).

APR recognition

UBE’s innovation has been recognized as meeting or exceeding the most strict APR PE-CG-01 Critical Guidance Protocol for PE Film and Flexible Packaging criteria. The APR recognition is based on the technical recyclability of the film innovation, in the polyethylene film recycling stream.

“APR thanks UBE for voluntarily submitting this film structure for Recognition. The impact of these protocols is beneficial to world-wide recycling efforts. Meeting the Critical Guidance Document is a truly significant step in demonstrating overall recyclability of your film innovation” wrote APR President Steve Alexander in a letter to UBE highlighting the acknowledgment dated January 17th.

Meeting the APR’s Critical Guidance Document is an additional evidence and a truly significant step in demonstrating the good recyclability of coextruded PE films containing PA 6/66 by mechanical recycling.

For more information on innovation and details on Critical Guidance Recognition, email uce-circularity@ube.com or contact an UBE representative.

The Acknowledgement Letter issued by APR to UBE.
