OBBOTEC SPEX supports FlexForward project

Wageningen University & Research is, in samenwerking met elf industriële partners, waaronder OBBOTEC, een vierjarig project gestart onder de naam ‘Flex Forward’ om de veiligheid te onderzoeken van gerecyclede polyethyleen (PE) en polypropyleen (PP) films voor gebruik in voedselcontacttoepassingen. Dit project heeft tot doel de veiligheid en prestaties van gerecyclede flexibele PE- en PP-materialen in voedselgevoelige contexten te beoordelen.

Wageningen Food & Biobased Research and Wageningen Food Safety Research will lead the project, which is subsidized by Topsector Agri&Food and funded by several industry leaders including Verpact, Unilever, Braskem, PreZero, Oerlemans Plastics, Delo, What’s Cooking, Th. Vergeer en Zonen, PepsiCo, Mars, and of course, OBBOTEC/SPEX Technology. The data generated from this research will enable the industrial partners to thoroughly evaluate the suitability, safety, and performance of these recycled materials.
