The new product line offers a film that is composed of 30% or more of post-consumer recycled, food grade PET.


Bloomfield, N.Y. January 28 2020 – Terphane (www.terphane.com) has successfully launched over 10 different sustainable films under its EcophaneTM brand. These new PET films address a growing demand to produce recyclable packaging comprised of recycled content.

“Our Ecophane line is the result of extensive research and development. Using our highly advanced technology, we created a PET film with a minimum of 30% post-consumer recycled PET in its composition, including a biodegradable option,” explained Marcos Vieira, Global R&D Director of Terphane.

The re-use of post-consumer materials in Terphane´s new Ecophane films aligns with the circular economy concept: disposed PET packaging (primarily water bottles) is collected and recycled into new packaging.  The Ecophane line enables brand owners searching for more sustainable packaging to meet commitments to their markets.

The continued conversion from rigid to lightweight, flexible packaging also reduces environmental impact and offers great advantages for product storage, transportation costs and disposal. “Flexible packaging manufacturers are leading the discussion about sustainable packaging. Flexible packaging is today’s perfect choice for a sustainable solution in the market. The new Ecophane films close the loop for using disposable post-consumer packaging that can be recycled again,” stated Mr. Vieira.
