Sustainable Solutions

CCL’s strategy is to help customers meet their sustainability targets while reducing the planetary impact of our own manufacturing processes, materials and products.

CCL’s sustainable Labels offer a more eco-friendly option for creating great-looking labels for your packaging.

EcoStream®

The revolutionary EcoStream® labels by CCL enable ideal bottle-to-bottle recycling of PET bottles.

Thanks to the clean separation of label and PET flakes raw materials can be returned seamlessly into the recycling stream ensuring complete reuse. EcoStream® labelling technology helps maximize both the yield and quality of the B2B recycling stream.

CCL‘s EcoStream® labels are not only ecologically beneficial – they also offer complete design freedom: whether clear, opaque or with premium finish – almost anything is achievable! EcoStream labels completely eliminate contamination issues that can be caused in the recycling stream by permanent PSLs.

SUSTAINABILITY LABELS

EcoSource®

The EcoSource® label consist of components with up to 94% biological share. Instead of using fossil raw materials its components are made from renewable resources. The processability and clarity of the chosen bioplastics and biobased adhesives guarantee secure performance and premium appearance.

 

EcoSolve®

EcoSolve® labels are biodegradable and compostable. Therefore they are the ideal solution for ecological containers such as bottles made of PLA. The ecological composition is suitable for conventional printing technologies. With its outstanding characteristics EcoSolve® is a decisive step towards the next level of green packaging.


TripleS®

Our TripleS® Super-Stretch-Sleeve technology has the smallest carbon footprint of all decoration technologies. The sleeves are stretched and applied to the container without the use of adhesives or heat. The natural elasticity is all that is required to hold the sleeve in place. The extremely low density films allow an easy and clean separation for recycling.

BioPE Stretch Sleeve

CCL Völkermarkt specially developed this Stretch Sleeve – it is made of bio-based Stretch film and is fully recyclable with the conventional PE recycling stream. In comparison to conventional polyethylene, the main difference is that the ethanol used for Bio-PE is not produced using crude oil, but instead, it is derived from sugarcane. Each ton of Bio-PE produced means up to 3.09 tons less of CO2 thus helping to reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions. Bio-PE Stretch Sleeves consist of 100% bio-based Polyethylene (PE), made from renewable resources and support brands’ sustainability targets. This makes the Sleeve fully recyclable with conventional PE recycling streams.

EcoStretch™ The Closed Loop Solution

The world’s very first closed-loop recycling process for post-consumer Stretch Sleeves – keeping products & material in use.

  • Sleeves are removed from returned bottles & send to CCL
  • Sleeves are de-inked, recycled (molten & pelletised) and then used to make new sleeves
  • Minimal waste & reduced carbon footprint

Labels & Sleeves with rPET

The use of rPET for decoration reduces the overall carbon footprint of the packaging: The use of recycled plastics can lower the total amount of CO2 equivalent emissions dramatically. Labels and sleeves using recycled content such as rPET from post-consumer recycling (PCR) are part of the broad range of our sustainable solutions. Contact us to learn more.
