Ahlstrom Announces Paper Release Liner Recycling Initiative

November 20, 2012

Ahlstrom recently announced a new initiative for recycling silicone-coated paper release liners used by the pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) label industry. The initiative is intended to collect silicone-coated super-calendered papers (“glassine”) once they have been used as carriers of PSA labels by end-users, such as brand owners or retailers. Ahlstrom will reportedly collect the materials through one or more logistics partners and will recycle them into specialty paper production at its Osnabrück, Germany, plant.

Avery Dennison Label and Packaging Materials Division will reportedly support this initiative and use its contacts across the value chain in order to make label printers and brand owners aware of the program.
