Aquapak Polymers Ltd (“Aquapak”) has developed a ground-breaking specially formulated polymer for use in thin film packaging. This innovative technology offers greater functionality than many regular plastics in terms of strength and durability in a wide variety of everyday applications. Additionally, the polymer is 100% fully biodegradable, compostable and recyclable and has excellent ecological credentials in end-of-life processing. The new polymer process has strong potential. The base materials are all FDAapproved and hence the product is suitable for food packaging. With the rapid market growth of pouches for product portioning, the product can replace a significant amount of nonrecoverable plastic packaging. Aquapak can therefore make a strong and immediate contribution to changing the way plastics are used in certain global sectors such as food waste, hospital hygiene, electronics, clothing and food packaging, as well as in multiple niche applications.
