Dec. 12, 2017 - UPM Raflatac says it plans to expand its RafCycle recycling solution to China.

RafCycle is a recycling concept that offers a new life for label liner waste which provides several benefits to printers, packers, brand-owners and the environment.

The paper liner waste generated by the RafCycle partners in China will be delivered to Hangzhou Fulun Ecology Technology Co., Ltd. (Hangzhou Changli) where the paper liner waste can be recycled back into pulp and paper. Hangzhou Changli is also the 100th RafCycle partner.

“The recycling of wood fibres in paper products is a closed-loop solution and a shining example of sustainability at its best,” said Sharon Xiao, Sustainability Manager, APAC, UPM Raflatac. “We see sustainability as a key for success and a driver of innovation.”

The number of RafCycle partners has grown increasingly over the years as sustainability has become one of the key drivers in the labelling industry.

Today more than 10,000 tonnes of label liner waste is being recycled in Europe through the RafCycle program.
