Novolex is a leader in driving the circular economy. As a provider of a wide range of plastic and paper packaging, Novolex has been an early adopter of sustainable practices such as joining the Forest Stewardship Council, the Rainforest Alliance and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative.
From the Novolex 2018 Sustainability Report
“the use of recycled content in our products reduces our reliance on virgin materials. Novolex engineers work closely with our customers and evaluate our end markets to understand how to minimize the use of packaging and develop products that can be recycled or composted. As we have grown, the Novolex product portfolio has continually expanded to include a range of plastic (resin), paper (fiber) and other materials, each with their own sustainability attributes."
Novolex, based in North Vernon, Indiana, runs a nationwide collection program for post consumer films and bags, typically from collection bins in supermarkets but also in other consumer friendly locations. They then recycle the collected material (Using EREMA technology!) to produce new plastic bags.
EREMA is proud to announce our participation in the Novolex program!
Collection bins are placed within the EREMA NA facility in order to capture bags to be sent to Novolex for recycling.
