REDUCE | ASCLEPIUS™: UPTO 100% POST-CONSUMER RECYCLED-CONTENT (PCR) BOPET BARRIER FILM
UFlex Group has been a trendsetter when it comes to sustainable innovation and commitment towards the ‘Circular Economy’. It was the ‘first company in the world to recycle mixed plastic waste’ for which it earned recognition at the prestigious Davos Recycle Forum in 1995, way ahead of other companies from developed economies.
Our global film manufacturing arm Flex Films, as part of its commitment towards greener environment, offers an entire range of post-consumer grade PCR Films having upto 100% post-consumer recycled PET content under the brand name Asclepius™. This film’s technology is a family of plain, treated, coated, high barrier and heat-sealable BOPET films based on 100% PCR polymer content. This film represents a 75% reduction in carbon footprint versus virgin BOPET grades yet exhibits the same attributes as its twin substrate.
With Flex’ pioneering technology, an extremely high level of PCR content in the film is being met, as is needed with the accelerating greening demand of the global economy. The 100% PCR BOPET film or PCR film has also received the prestigious ‘Kingfisher’ Certification from SCS Global Services that certifies that Flex Films’ PCR grade films contain minimum 100% post-consumer recycled PET content. This certification corroborates to its customers and to the flexible films’ market, the integrity of its supply chain and claims regarding PCR based film technology. AIMCAL Annual Awards 2019 recognized the film with ‘Excellence in Sustainability’ due to the technology and cost these films offer to the market, followed by a win at WorldStar Packaging Awards 2021 for Food Packaging.
These PCR films come with enhanced sustainability and low carbon footprint and customers have been using these films in a range of packaging and labelling applications in order to help global CPG brands achieve high sustainability goals.
At UFlex Ltd., we have pushed recycling limits with Asceplius Film and have been contributing to reduction of plastic waste on earth, one unit at a time, and create a closed loop ecosystem.
Our range of PCR grade film echoes our aim to reduce virgin plastic use at source and replace it with recycled content.

RECYCLE | MLP WASTE INTO GRANULES: MAKING LIVES BETTER FOR HUMANKIND
Recycling of plastic waste is the need of the hour. UFlex recognized the need to recycle plastic waste more than two decades back and established recycling units in its plants that convert multi-layer mixed plastic waste into granules. An added feature of the recycled material (granules) is that it is re-used to manufacture industrial and household products like roads, outdoor furniture, paver tiles, dustbins and many more such household and industrial items.
To tackle the challenge of recycling multi-layer mixed plastic waste, UFlex created ReLAM 250, a high-end multi-layer recycling machine meeting European standards, which turns mixed plastic waste into granulated product without the need for separation of layers.
Another major move by UFlex to create wealth out of waste is the introduction of packaging films by upcycling MLP waste into PCR PE films. UFlex won Packaging Gateway Excellence Awards 2020 in ‘Environmental Impact’ for driving the circular economy with its path-breaking technology to recycle MLP packaging waste homogeneously. With all these efforts in place, UFlex is helping create a circular plastic economy and make lives better for humankind.
REUSE | PYROLYSIS PLANT: CONVERTING ITS WASTE PLASTIC INTO FUEL
UFlex’ Pyrolysis is a resource recovery process that converts MLP waste into forms of energy helping the environment clear the plastic waste. At its Noida Packaging plant, UFlex converts discarded plastic waste material that’s generated every day from printing, unused trim, laminates, tubes and other unprocessed material into Liquid Fuel, Hydrocarbon Gas and Carbon Black which substitutes use of energy in machinery.
RETURN | 100% SUPER EARTH FRIENDLY BIODEGRADABLE PACKAGING
An enzyme-based technology, Flexzyme breaks down uncollected flexible packaging waste completely into harmless components like water, biomass and carbon when it comes into contact with soil. The biomass is nothing short of a fertilizer in the natural environment and the technology leaves no polluting impact on the earth while addressing worries attached to uncollected plastic waste. The technology is undergoing trial with some consumer brands currently.
