Recyclable PP film replacing metallised PET

Polypropylen Folie Icon
The challenge

ALMA Packaging was faced with the challenge of replacing a vapour-deposited APET film with a more recyclable alternative. The eye-catching look and the characteristic colour of the packaging had to be retained.

The solution
In collaboration with partners, a customised solution was developed that fulfils both recyclability and the criterion of a captivating look.
  1. ALMA Packaging developed a film solution based on polypropylene (PP) that is highly recyclable without compromising the functionality of the film.
  2. To meet the colouring requirements, ALMA Packaging worked closely with a partner to develop a masterbatch colour solution. This solution made it possible to reliably implement the customer’s desired colour nuances in the manufacturing and converting process.
The result

This case study shows how ALMA Packaging successfully developed a packaging alternative with better recyclability and brought it to market, enhancing the product presentation in the process.


ALMA Packaging has an impressive track record of mastering many complex challenges at product and customer level.

barrier film

The recycling infrastructure demands packaging that is as simple as possible so that it can be recycled. ALMA Packaging has further developed the highly functional barrier film so that it can be recycled like mono packaging film.

Consumers not only require the coffee to be sustainable, but also the packaging. Together with our partners, we have therefore developed a coffee capsule film made from renewable raw materials and brought it to market maturity.
