Take part in shaping the future of plastic packaging!

Discover NextCycle IML™

Compared to other decoration techniques, NextCycle IML™ does not require any involvement from the consumer to separate materials prior to disposal and as a NextCycle IML™ packaging is a mono PP-material packaging, there are no material losses during the sorting process nor pollution of other material waste streams.

NextCycle IML™ no longer requires a trade-off between Brands and Recyclers when it comes to the decoration of a sustainable rigid PP packaging. This way, MCC Verstraete is setting a complete new standard for future sustainable IML packaging and taking an important step forward in making eventually mechanically recycled food-grade rPP widely available. In combination with digital watermarks for intelligent sorting, and adding SealPPeel lidding, we are offering the ultimate circular IML packaging of the future!
