Innovation in transparent barrier films

“The growing environmental concern is bringing a lot of innovation in transparent barrier films market for the last few years. Many manufacturers are adding additive agents in polymers to get more moisture and vapor resistance. By doing so, they can replace the requirement of aluminum foil to some extent, which can bring some percentage of sustainability in their business divisions,” says Shakti Jakhar, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on packaging.

New product innovation is also emerging in the transparent film market by eliminating chlorine content. The presence of chlorine content in transparent film increases carbon emission and energy consumption while manufacturing and generates non-degradable waste after disposal. By rectifying this problem, some vendors are bringing innovative products that can solve all these issues mentioned above.

Recycling of transparent barrier films

“Initiation of new regional regulations for plastic reduction paves the way for complete recycling of transparent barrier films. Many waste handling organizations have utilized these opportunities by introducing innovative recycling techniques for complete recycling of both aluminum and chlorine-added plastic films,” adds Shakti.

Enval, a UK-based waste handling organization, has come up with a process called pyrolysis. In this process, the transparent film is allowed to burn in a chamber; the char from this residue consists of 79% liquid carbon and 21% carbon gas. Carbon dioxide is not generated in this process because the chamber contains no oxygen. The liquid carbon and gaseous carbon produced in this process can be transported to different locations for fulfilling the requirements of fuel and energy needs.

Growing bio-degradable film market

Polyhydroxybutyrate Valerate (PHBV) is one of the earliest-found bio-degradable packaging films; it is a bacterially grown polyester with similar properties of PP. Followed by this, the market consists of other bio-degradable films such as protein-based plastics, polysaccharides, polyoxyethylene, polyvinylalchohol, and others.

Clondalkin, one of the prominent vendors supplying transparent barrier packaging films across the globe, has a separate product segment for bio-degradable films. It offers bio-degradable and compostable packaging films for various food and frozen-food packaging applications.
