Recycle more with non-carbon black packaging

Recycle more with non-carbon black packaging

The new black is non-carbon black! When made from a non-carbon black masterbatch, your used plastic packaging can be detected during the waste sorting process and used for recycling. Superfos, a Berry Global company, now offers you packs made with non-carbon black masterbatch.

As your trusted plastic packaging provider, Superfos is pleased to say that you can now order a more sustainable version of black plastic packaging for your food or non-food products. When you opt for a non-carbon black packaging solution, the used packaging is detectable by the Near Infra-Red (NIR) scanners used in waste sorting processes. This means that it will be sorted for recycling purposes.

The new masterbatch is a significant improvement on conventional carbon-black plastic which, in many cases, cannot be detected in the waste sorting process and generally ends up as a source of energy through incineration.

Your pack can be black and recyclable
Now, if you want to contribute to the circular economy, you have better choices. If you are looking for recyclable plastic packaging solutions, you can either choose lighter colours or, if you want to stick to black, then select the carbon free black masterbatch.  

Flemming Madsen, Factory Manager at Superfos Wetteren, Belgium, and part of the team behind the development, is delighted to present this new option:

“Superfos uses a high-quality non-carbon black masterbatch which contains special pigments to improve detection and sorting by NIR technology. This is ideal to improve the recycling and recovery of black plastics. Opting for non-carbon black helps to reduce the amount of plastic in the waste stream.”

The non-carbon black plastic masterbatch is suitable for opaque products, although, the degree of opacity is slightly less than the standard black masterbatch. Together with our masterbatch supplier, we constantly make sure that the colour black meets stringent requirements. You may use the carbon free black for packaging solutions made of either polyethylene (PE) or polypropylene (PP).

Your usual Superfos contact looks forward to supplying you with any additional information or advice you may need in relation to non-carbon black packaging solutions. At the upcoming trade fairs CFIA Nantes and MADE Paris, we will be showcasing samples of packs produced with non-carbon black masterbatch.

If you would like to see and feel the new detectable black plastic material, please do not hesitate to request a sample by contacting your local sales office.
