Dow Performance Packaging created a 100% recyclable stand-up pouch made from only polyethylene resins so it can be recycled within existing PE recovery channels. The pouch has "88% less total material weight, consumes 54% less energy and allows for up to 90% less post-consumer solid waste" when compared to bag-in-box products, according to LCA Analysis, said Nestor de Mattos, group marketing director for food and specialty packaging at Dow.
