CEFLEX is the collaborative initiative of a European consortium of companies and associations representing the entire value chain of flexible packaging
The Initiative Mission is to further enhance the performance of flexible packaging in the circular economy by advancing better system design solutions identified through the collaboration of companies representing the entire value chain.
  • CEFLEX is the collaborative initiative of a European consortium of companies and associations representing the entire value chain of flexible packaging.
  • The CEFLEX Mission is to further enhance the performance of flexible packaging in the circular economy by designing and advancing better system solutions identified through the collaboration of companies representing the entire value chain.
  • The CEFLEX Vision
    • By 2020 flexible packaging will have a comprehensive sustainability and circular economy roadmap for flexible packaging, including widely recognised design guidelines and a robust approach to measure, demonstrate and communicate the significant value flexible packaging adds to the circular economy.                                                                                          The roadmap will address:
      • resource efficiency
      • waste preventions benefits
      • sustainably returning recycled flexible packaging materials to supply identified end markets
      • elimination of leakage.
    • By 2025 there will be an established collection, sorting and reprocessing infrastructure/economy developed for post-consumer flexible packaging across Europe, based on end of life technologies and processes which deliver the best economic, technical and environmental outcome for a circular economy.

Total associates with partners to create a closed loop recycling chain in construction films

Total and several partners along the construction value chain
have decided to associate to form the Clean Site Circular Project which aims at recycling
natural shrink hoods* wastes from the construction sector in closed system without film
performances degradation.
It has already been demonstrated that a closed loop ‘shrink hood to shrink hood’ is
industrially feasible and technically equivalent to virgin solutions. The film recipe has been
developed by Total. It requires the use of Total Lumicene Supertough® 22ST05
