EcoSource® BIO

EcoSource BIO labels consist of materials made from renewable resources, properties of material remain the same:

  • Various materials available e.g. made from tall oil (by-product of paper industry) or plant-based
  • Carbon negative & neutral films available, no compromise in recyclability of packaging
  • Secure performance & premium appearance

EcoSource PCR

EcoSource PCR labels & sleeves are made from material with Post-Consumer-Recyclate (PCR):

  • Use of PCR for decoration reduces the overall carbon footprint of the packaging, properties of material remain the same
  • Various shares of PCR are available for PP and PET labels, WashOff and One-Way as well as Shrink Sleeves

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 de-inked, recycled (molten & pelletised) and then used to make new sleeves
  • Minimal waste & reduced carbon footprint

Bio-PE – Bio-Based 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.

TripleS® – Super Stretch Sleeve

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.

EcoCrys™ – Crystallizable PET Shrink Sleeve

APR, the Association of Plastic Recyclers, recognized on the CCL Label’s EcoCrys™ crystallizable PET Shrink Sleeve Label as meeting or exceeding the voluntary APR Design® PET-CG-02, Critical Guidance Protocol for Clear PET Articles with Labels and Closures. This APR recognition is based on the technical recyclability of the decorated label innovation with PET bottles.
