Together with the ink manufacturer Siegwerk Druckfarben AG & Co. KGaA, EPEA Switzerland GmbH (Environmental Protection Encouragement Agency) and the global packaging and paper company Mondi, the printing ink system was developed. It has now been awarded the Material Health Certificate (MHC) GOLD.

"In the spirit of the Open Innovation approach promoted by the Werner & Mertz Recyclate Initiative, the certified ink series with the product name 'NC 270' is not patented. It may be and should be used by other companies," said Torsten Haas, Packaging Developer at Werner & Mertz.

Completely recyclable stand-up pouch

The idea for a sustainable flexographic printing ink came up in the joint development project with Mondi for a completely recyclable stand-up pouch (StripPouch). According to the company, this is the first pouch which, thanks to the monomaterial and removable printed panels, can be recycled at a high quality level.
