Coveris unveils state-of-the-art-film science lab to support no waste strategy

Cheshire, United Kingdom

Leading sustainable packaging manufacturer Coveris has unveiled a new Film Science Lab at its Winsford films facility in Cheshire, UK. Providing state-of-the-art technology and market leading expertise, the new scientific hub will support the accelerated R&D of innovative solutions across the manufacturer’s extensive product range and global customer base.

Supporting the Group’s vision of NO WASTE across its operations, packaging and the products it protects, the new Film Science Lab is a forward thinking initiative that sets out to minimise waste in all three areas, as well as offsetting this through inclusion in its own materials

Located at Europe’s largest co-extrusion facility, the lab supports the development, formulation and analysis of new and improved recyclable polyethylene (PE) films for food and non-food applications. Responsible for developing the sustainable films of the future, the lab targets material reduction through the delivery of best-in-class, downgauged films alongside the development of recyclable barrier and laminate replacement films with advanced functional performance up to 9-layers.
