DERIBA GREENLINE ®
Packaging is important, and is an integral part of the product it protects. But packaging also consumes energy and resources – and extracts a heavy toll when it ends up discarded in the natural environment. This is why the European Packaging Directive is strongly encouraging enterprises to act to ensure their packaging gets recycled. With its DERIBA GREENLINE® label, the DERIBA Group is already a step ahead here.
What does this mean for the packaging? It contains at least 80 % Blue Angel-grade PCR material, and is 100 % recyclable due to the extraordinary purity level of the recyclate. And for you? There’s no plastic tax to pay!
“The DERIBA recycling kit enables our customers to collect their polyethylene film packaging waste and return it to us, so making this a crucial part of our recycling loop”, explains Frank Rieker, CEO of the KBG Group, member of the DERIBA Group, and co-initiator of the DERIBA GREENLINE® label.
Even if customers or end consumers dispose of the DERIBA Group’s GREENLINE® film using Germany’s “Green Dot” system rather than DERIBA’s own recycling loop, the environment will still ultimately benefit. The plastic film will be integrated into the circular economy. GREENLINE® film can also be properly handled by other recyclers to produce PCR granulate.
“The circular economy is one of the EU’s declared priorities, and the packaging market is both its spearhead and trailblazer. We will be one of the first to fulfil our remit in this area – including and particularly because of the huge financial burden that non-recyclable packaging exerts within the Group”, says Thomas Rose.
ALL THREE PATHWAYS SHARE THE FOLLOWING:
- Valuable resources are conserved
- Waste is guaranteed to be recycled and not dumped in the environment
- Boost to the circular economy – supply of recyclable film is secured
