Plantic Technologies is claiming to have developed the first renewable and recyclable ultra-high barrier packaging format.

The Plantic eco Plastic R combines PET and Plantic biodegradable film to provide a packaging material which has ultra-high gas barrier properties made from up to 60% renewable materials.

The trays and roll stock can be directly substituted for existing materials into the supply chain as a drop-in replacement for traditional plastics used in modified atmosphere and ultra-high barrier packaging, claims the firm.

"Plantic eco Plastic R, unlike other barrier packaging formats, can be fully recycled with the PET recovered in the traditional recycling streams with Plantic’s barrier material dissolving and biodegrading in the process,"​ said Brendan Morris, Plantic Technologies CEO.
