BERICAP presents sustainable closures at FACHPACK 2021

BERICAP GmbH & Co. KG Budenheim, Germany

Visitors to this year’s FACHPACK 2021 can discover consumer and climate friendly closures with enhanced tamper-proof designs at the BERICAP exhibition booth no. 418 in hall 6. BERICAP is one of the leading global manufacturers of plastic and aluminum closures. At the packaging industry trade fair in Nuremberg from September 28 - 30, 2021 it is showcasing a range of innovative products with eco-friendly and recyclable designs. Over the years BERICAP has been evolving its products to a lighter design with lower material usage. In particular, a focus on the use of recycled materials (PCR resin) is contributing to further reducing the carbon footprint and advancing closed loop material cycles.

Recyclable and 100% silicone-free: BERICAPValve

BERICAPValve is a new addition to the BERICAP portfolio. It differs from other closures for spreadables because instead of incorporating a silicone valve, it has a valve made from a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE). As a result, the BERICAPValve prevents the contamination of the recycling stream with silicone. This significant sustainability effect was achieved by BERICAP through valve material optimization, resulting in a 100% silicone-free valve with obvious recycling advantages. The BERICAPValve has the ‘Made for Recycling’ quality seal from the independent Interseroh Institute after achieving excellent results in the analysis. It was also selected by the jury of the famous Packaging Europe Sustainability Awards as the 2020 winner of the ‘Recyclable Packaging’ category.
