North America – Recovery Solutions for Flexible Plastic Packaging: Materials Recovery for the Future

The packaging stream is evolving. Resource efficient flexible plastic packaging provides outstanding product protection in innovative formats. Currently in North America, flexible plastic packaging is not typically accepted in recycling programs. As the expectation for full lifecycle management of packaging increases, it is important that the related industries take part in the foundation of future solutions to provide effective and economic recovery options for flexible plastic packaging.

The Materials Recovery for the Future (MRFF) is a research collaborative of leading brands, manufacturers, packaging companies and other key members of the value chain that are committed to enhancing recovery solutions for flexible plastic packaging.
