ProAmpac LLC, a U.S.-based flexible packaging solutions provider, is reportedly introducing a new collection of sustainable packaging product groups. The latest move is an integral part of the company’s latest ProAmpac Sustainability™ initiative and is aimed at enhancing the environmentally sustainable and efficient flexible packaging solutions.

Reportedly, the new product groups include ProActive Compostable, ProActive Recyclable, ProActive PCR and ProActive Renewable groups. Relevant sources stated that the ProActive Recyclable group contains products which can be processed after usage, by way of typical plastic recycling. It also includes recyclable products such as quad seal pouches, stand up pouches, rollstock for fill/form/seal applications, lawn & leaf bags, sandwich wraps and retail handled shopping bags.

The ProActive Compostable group has products that are biodegradable in industrial composting facilities. Compostable packaging is a better sustainable offering and the company is planning to help customers incorporate compostability into the paper packaging offerings. However, the ProActive Renewable group’s products are made from bio-based feedstock like sugarcane or corn and the renewable products include big format bags for the garden and lawn market. The ProActive PCR group’s products contain PCR (post-consumer recycled) plastic from non-virgin, recycled plastic resin sources. The firm looks to amalgamate PCR into materials and meet the carbon footprint reduction and customer sustainability goals, added sources.

As per a press release by ProAmpac, the company’s proprietary ProAmpac Sustainability™ policy deploys advanced technology to innovate sustainable, flexible packaging products. The company, with reduction in energy usage by its facilities, is endeavoring to engage employees and ally with customers and suppliers to improve the communities it operates in by providing better packaging.

Adam Grose, ProAmpac’s Chief Commercial Officer, said that the company is keeping up with its corporate commitment to develop flexible packaging demanded by its customers for their consumers.

ProAmpac is expected to exhibit the new products at Natural Products Expo West show in the Anaheim Convention Center, to be conducted from March 6 to 8, 2019.
