April 3, 2023  By P&PC Staff

Sonoco’s high barrier paper-based structure, EnviroFlex Paper Ultimate (ULT) 1.0 received How2Recycle pre-qualification. In addition, it has met all requirements of the Fibre Box Association’s Voluntary Standard for Repulping and Recycling.

Sonoco says in a press statement that this pre-qualification is a result of its ongoing efforts to develop sustainable packaging solutions.

EnviroFlex Paper ULT 1.0 is an oxygen, moisture and grease barrier packaging solution available in various formats, including rollstock, heat/cold seal, sachets and pre-made pouches. It is curbside recyclable, says the company.


“At the heart of our success is our talented R&D team and cross-supply chain collaboration, which has enabled us to develop and bring a portfolio of paper solutions to market that is both sustainable and effective,” said Sonoco global environmental, sustainability and technical services vice-president Elizabeth Rhue.

How2Recycle is a standardized label system that allows companies to track and measure the recyclability of packaging. The on-pack labelling was created to provide consistent and transparent recycling information for U.S. and Canada consumers.
