Circular Economy for Flexible Packaging (CEFLEX) 

Lifecycle Focus

Design, Collection, Sortation, Processing and End Markets.

CEFLEX is a new initiative by a broad consortium of European companies representing the value chain of flexible packaging. They aim to advance better system design solutions for a variety of flexible packaging, including multi-materials films. CEFLEX stakeholders will work towards the development of collection, sorting and reprocessing infrastructure for post consumer flexible packaging across Europe by 2025. This will be enabled by the development and application of robust Design Guidelines for both flexible packaging and the end of the cycle infrastructure by 2020.
