“The good news is that multi-layer plastic packaging (MLP), even when it is printed, laminated and metallised, is 100% recyclable,” declared Uflex chairman Ashok Chaturvedi. He was speaking at the Speciality Films and Flexible Packaging Global Summit in Mumbai.

Chaturvedi said, “Uflex recognises its responsibility to the environment. It has been recycling all types of multi-layer packaging waste, in varied combinations and structures, successfully for the past two decades. It was awarded in Davos for this initiative way back in 1995.”

Multi Layered Plastic Packaging is 100% Recyclable – Ashok Chaturvedi at Pack Vision 2018, Agra

Imposing Incentives on Waste Collection can Make India the First Country that will be Free from Plastic Waste

Sept 08, 2018 Agra, Uttar Pradesh: Emphasizing the need for recycling of multi layered plastic packaging as a sustainable solution for flexible packaging industry, Ashok Chaturvedi, Chairman & Managing Director, Uflex Limited expressed his concrete views at Pack Vision 2018 hosted by Flexible Packaging Entrepreneurs’ Welfare Association recently. Flexible packaging, a 100 billion dollar industry, comprises the largest part of the total packaging industry growing at an average of 4.5 – 5 % globally.

There is a great deal of misconception on plastic being the mere culprit to cause harm to the environment by choking the gutters, affecting the Marine life and harming the birds and animals which consume the littered plastics floating around both on the land and sea. Multi layered plastic packaging is 100% recyclable and consumes minimum amount of energy in the process as compared to glass jars and metallic containers which consume 20 times more energy and causes much more pollution while converting glass into glass or metal into metal.

‘Finally some good sense prevails for Flexible Packaging’ – Uflex CMD writes an Opinion Editorial for Business Today

April 25, 2018 | Business Today

On 22nd April, the World celebrated Earth Day and it could not have been any timelier for me to write this piece for the readers of Business Today!

Much has been said and written vilifying flexible packaging in India and overseas alike, particularly during the last decade and a half. It ends up in oceans and rivers; keeps piling on roadsides adding to nuisance; cannot be reprocessed; cannot be put to any alternate use; chokes drainage systems; kills cows and buffaloes who ingest packaging while grazing on garbage heaps etc. are just a few of the very many accusations hurled at this absolutely versatile form of packaging. Some states in India have also gone to the extent of imposing ban on plastic bags.

Business-Today

Let me play a devil’s advocate for a moment and assume that all that I have mentioned hereinabove is true. Do these packets walk on two legs and get immersed in our water bodies? Do these packs yell and say ‘Hey, please dump me by the roadside so that I could mingle with my siblings coming from other outlets’? Do these packs gang up and find a cosy corner for themselves in our drain holes? The answer is a BIG FAT ‘NO’. It is the irresponsible behaviour on part of ‘We the People’ that leads to such menace and concomitant hazard. It is a known fact that diesel and petrol vehicles are a major source of pollution. Have the diesel and petrol pumps been shut? A knife that is used for chopping vegetables can also be used to slit a throat. Have vegetable cutting knifes been banned world over? To what use we put an available resource is completely our wisdom. It’s the choice we make! Nothing can be held responsible for the choices we make. The fault is not of the knife but that of the killer. How can banning of flexible packaging be justified in such a scenario? All that banning exemplifies is a knee-jerk reaction and an extremely myopic point of view.
