VerdeSeal

Recyclable Material for Resealable Packaging

VerdeSeal is a recyclable, proprietary pressure sensitive tape technology with FDA food compliance, applicable to Sealstrip’s easy open and resealable product lines. The recyclable material produces our same consumer-loved convenience features and no loss in operational efficiency - with the added sustainability benefit.

Utilizing recyclable polyethylene (PE) based films, VerdeSeal meets the content requirements for recyclable material. Additionally, brand owners are looking to introduce uniform compositional packaging structures whenever possible ahead of the MacArthur Foundation & Global 2025 and 2030 initiatives.

PE is viewed as a long-term sustainable package film choice:

  • Recycle streams for flexible packaging are being actively developed by large brand owners and PE producers (Dow, Nova, Lyondell)
  • Multiple investments in flexible packaging recycling and sorting facilities & pilot programs are increasing
  • New re-use markets are being developed (asphalt, concrete, building products)
  • Recycle-grade PE resin innovation pipeline is growing

In addition to recyclability, VerdeSeal was found to have the ability to produce a significant reduction in carbon footprint when compared to conventional reseal adhesive technologies.

VerdeSeal is available now for Sealstrip’s resealable product lines – Peel&Seal, FreshPak, Sealstrip, and SealAcross – ideal for a variety of applications, such as baked goods, refrigerated or frozen foods, snacks and candy, fresh produce, tortillas, shelf stable foods, pet food, personal care and more!

Carbon Footprint Reduction Case Study

In addition to recyclability, VerdeSeal was found to have the ability to produce a significant reduction in carbon footprint when compared to conventional reseal adhesive technologies.

Life cycle and eco-efficiency assessments were performed and critically reviewed by third parties to confirm VerdeSeal’s recyclability and determine environmental impact. Reducing the carbon footprint and the amount of plastic is continuously driving packaging innovation, and top brands are setting the goals and benchmarks for the near future of the industry.

VerdeSeal has been qualified as a recyclable solution through a product life cycle assessment performed by TÜV Rheinland, critically reviewed by Thinkstep (a Division of Sphera):

  • The study was based on 20,000 m2 label production (0.031 BSI of product)
  • The analysis followed international standards for life cycle and eco-efficiency assessment (ISO 14040:2006, ISO 14044:2006, ISO 14045:2012)
  • Key Findings:
    • 2,500 kg CO2-eq per 20,000 m2 not placed into the atmosphere by using innovative cure technology…Or plant 500 trees to be carbon neutral
    • 400,000 to 40,000 tonnes of CO2 will not be emitted into the atmosphere based on the adhesive choice by Sealstrip Corporation
    • VerdeSeal technology is capable of providing a 66% reduction in carbon footprint as compared to conventional adhesive technologies...the equivalent of planting 100,000+ trees per year!*
