Enkase™, The Sustainable Plastic Barrier Technology
For more than 40 years, we have been helping achieve a more sustainable future for our customers by using our fully recyclable barrier technology, Enkase™.
Life cycle assessments of Enkase™ compared to multilayer barrier packaging and PET – from raw material extraction through end of life disposal – demonstrate a significant reduction in environmental impact. At the end of the lifecycle, Enkase™ ensures the produced barrier packaging can be recycled, helping contribute to a circular economy.
Enkase™ has the lowest environmental footprint and global warming impact of any barrier packaging technology. It has up to 27% less global warming potential and 22% less fossil fuel consumption compared to other major barrier packaging technologies and is recognized as fully recyclable by major plastics recycling organizations around the globe.
Approved by the largest recycling associations around the world, Enkase™ maintains the recyclability of HDPE, making it recyclable in any existing HDPE stream and collection system with no additional set up required. It replaces multilayer plastics, which are virtually non-recyclable and can contaminate recycle streams.
