Canadian chemicals and plastic resins producer Nova Chemicals (Calgary, Alberta; has launched the EX-PCR-NC4, its mechanically recycled polyethylene resin for packaging applications. The material contains 100% post-consumer recycled polyethylene sourced from distribution centre flexible film, which includes a blend of back-of-store stretch and front-of-store consumer drop-off material.

The rPE material allows converters and brand owners to meet their sustainability goals without compromising package performance in applications such as shrink, e-commerce, heavy-duty sacks, and protective packaging, the company says. Nova Chemicals’ technical expertise, it adds, helps guide customers to incorporate rPE and maintain the necessary level of product performance while creating recyclable flexible packaging. Commercial quantities of EX-PCR-NC4 are now available.
