The French Committee for the Evaluation of the Recyclability of Paper and Cardboard Packaging (CEREC), which has played a pioneering role in the area of sustainability in France since the early 90s under the direction of licensed companies CITEO and REVIPAC, recently issued a positive statement regarding various flexible packaging paper solutions from Koehler Paper (PCNC, Non-Complexed Paper-Cardboard).
With Koehler NexPlus®, Koehler is responding to the heavily growing demand for sustainable packaging solutions both in the food industry and in the non-food sector.´Koehler NexPlus® paper solutions are characterized by a barrier coating with various capabilities and characteristics. In particular, these include barriers against oxygen, odors, greases, MOSH/MOAH mineral oil hydrocarbons, and water vapor.
Brand-owners that use Koehler paper in France can benefit from reduced ecotaxes
The paper solutions given a positive rating by CEREC include NexPlus® Seal Pure, NexPlus® Seal MOB, and NexPlus® Advanced. Since 2022, French environmental agency ADEME has assigned what is referred to as an “Identifiant Unique” (unique identification number). This number serves as confirmation that the corresponding company is meeting its recycling obligations in France. Brand-owners that sell their products on the French market are not subject to penalties as per the standard set by CITEO.
However, sustainable packaging is given preference when it comes to licensing in France. Accordingly, distributors of packaging that is highly recyclable can get a significant recycling cost discount. This provides all distributors in France with a financial advantage if they decide to switch from conventional plastic packaging to sustainable packaging, of which Koehler NexPlus® paper is a prime example.
