Closed loop solution for paper release liner recycling
Visitors are welcome to learn more on UPM Raflatac’s solutions for recycling by-products from the self-adhesive labelstock value chain. UPM’s in-house solution for paper release liner recycling is available through the RafCycle waste management concept in Europe. Label printers, packers and brand owners can have spent release paper collected for recycling back into pulp and paper at UPM’s paper mill in Germany, saving on waste disposal costs from landfill or incineration. On UPM Raflatac’s stand, visitors can also have a look and feel on the UPM ProFi® wood-plastic composite decking that is manufactured from recycled paper and plastic from self-adhesive labelstock production.

UPM Raflatac is exhibiting on stand 6N097.
