IRPLAST SpA is an established producer of biaxially oriented polypropylene films (BOPP) with a forward-looking focus on innovation. In 2020, the Company became the first in Europe to produce on a large-scale bio-based films ISCC PLUS certified: NOPP (Natural Oriented Polypropylene from certified renewable feedstocks) and LOOPP, PCW-based polypropylene films, by replacing fossil-fuel based resins with feedstocks from chemical recycling using the “mass balance” approach. First in Europe to engineer and install a simultaneous stretching Bruckner-LISIM line with balanced mechanical stretch properties that are difficult to achieve in other processes, the Company has developed a unique know-how in the design and production of innovative and customized BOPP films focusing on sustainability. All the films in Irplast’s portfolio can now be sourced in their ISCC PLUS certified equivalent version based on the mass balance approach. The identical technical properties of all the films mean that brand owners and packaging suppliers can now use truly sustainable packaging solutions, which are immediately implementable, without having to change packaging appearance or packaging machinery, eliminating any need for investment in machinery or processes.
