The launch came during the 7th China Renewable Resources Recycling Industry Conference.
The new groups is called the Collaborative Body of Beverage Carton Sustainability Development, and its current members include Yili, Mengniu, five beverage carton producers, and 14 recycling plants. As part of the collaboration, Lamipak said it will continue to work closely with other companies and organizations with the goal of making a circular economy for aseptic packaging a reality.
Lamipak has been frequently collaborating with all members on the implementation of the EPR (extended producer responsibility) program since it joined the CRIC (Carton Recycling Industry Coalition) in May 2019.
In addition, Lamipak said it is making its own efforts toward sustainability by continually developing more innovations in environmentally-friendly products such as its LamiNatural packaging and paper straw products. Lamipak is also planning a pilot recycling project via the CRIC’s platform.
Vincent Wang, project manager of Lamipak, said, “It is a privilege to be working with such influential companies and organizations at ATCRR (Alliance of Technological Innovation in Compulsory Resource Recycling Industry) and CRIC. This event is a very important step in building a closed-loop circular economy, and I am excited to see what we can achieve through this wider collaboration of full recycling chain.”
