Fedrigoni has launched Re-Play range of products based on the upcycling of siliconized glassine liner material, which until now has been partly recycled and partly discarded. The glassine liner, which is returned by end users, is now, reportedly for the first time, part of the face stock of the self-adhesive construction.

Re-Play is the result of a circular economy solution that originated from the Fedrigoni Self-adhesives Re-Play liner recovery programme.

"We decided to set out on this path because it is in line with many of our ESG goals, in terms of waste reduction and CO2 emissions," said Fulvio Capussotti, executive vice president, Fedrigoni Self-Adhesives.

"Fedrigoni's goal is to involve the end customer as an integral part of this circular economy approach, with the inclusion of the entire supply chain, starting with the printers, who are the first users of the self-adhesive material. In terms of recycling, we have entered into an exclusive partnership with Les Papeteries de Clairefontaine, which possesses a low-temperature repulping process powered by biomass: adding glassine paper to white wastepaper results in a high-quality product without the need for invasive de-inking processes and with significant raw material savings."

The new Re-Play collection includes four different types of recycled paper: Nature White, Martelé, Retr, and Pearl. All these products will carry the FSC recycled certification.

Fedrigoni Self-Adhesives is one of the five founding members of Celab-Europe, a consortium currently comprising 30 members committed to the implementation of a new business model for self-adhesive materials, based on the circular economy.

The consortium wants to find and implement solutions for recycling and reusing self-adhesive label liners and waste by 2025. This will be done by creating a sustainable and circular model for more than 75% of the materials used in Europe. Fedrigoni Self-Adhesives is a part of the Celab-Europe consortium. This is part of a larger project for sustainable development and innovation that the group has been working on for almost 30 years.

With its ambitious 2030 ESG targets, Fedrigoni is set to become an industry benchmark in terms of environmental policies and one of the best places to work in terms of safety, inclusion and career development opportunities.
