Circular Economy Innovation
Manufacturing carbon reducing release papers and films
Waste silicone release liners are difficult to recycle due to their silicone coating and levels of contamination. Techlan has developed a highly innovative, patented recycling process for the recovery of this form of waste. It is a circular economy solution that allows the release liners to be used again by the same manufacturer or reused back into different industry sectors.
Stage 1: Release Papers Discarded
Silicone release papers are created as waste by-products from production processes, or as waste carriers from the supply of adhesive-backed products. They are often discarded and sent to landfill as they are so difficult to recycle. This is very costly to the manufacturer and has a significant environmental impact. If you would like to reduce your costs and environmental impact, then please contact Techlan for a free site audit. See our waste licences here.
Stage 2: Waste Rolls Collected
Techlan implements an efficient recycling system that diverts the waste release papers away from landfill. The waste rolls are packaged and stored ready for collection. A nationwide collection service is available for as little as 1 pallet and up to full truckloads.
Stage 3: Innovative Cleaning
All waste rolls are processed via Techlan’s innovative cleaning process to remove any contamination and defects. The process is highly energy efficient and uses no water or chemicals.
Stage 4: High Quality Assurance
Stage 5: Re-LinerTM Conversion
See our Case Study on the groundbreaking circular economy system in place at GTS flexibles as they achieve 11 uses from the same release liner.
