LA BERGSCHENHOEK, The Netherlands, Dec. 12, 2019 (Press Release) -CEFLEX, The Circular Economy for Flexible Packaging initiative, has announced it is inviting feedback, between 6 December 2019 – 17 January 2020, to enhance and refine phase one of the Designing for a Circular Economy Guidelines before publication in the first quarter of 2020.
This first edition focuses on the largest proportion of the post-consumer flexible packaging waste stream, polyolefin-based flexible packaging structures.
The guidelines aim to make packaging suitable for collection, sorting and recycling after use – giving clarity to brand owners, retailers, converters and others in the value chain and a clear roadmap for recycling infrastructure.

CEFLEX works across Europe to design and advance better system solutions, enhancing the performance of flexible packaging in a circular economy.
