Jury evaluation:

Even packaging with extremely high barrier requirements needs to be 100 % recyclable by 2025. This is a major challenge. The Elif company is meeting this challenge head-on for the demanding high-barrier films segment. ElifProLite, a PP mono-material structure for high-speed packaging applications, has been developed, successfully ensuring a long minimum shelf life and high aroma protection with its high barrier. The high water vapour barrier of 0.5 g/m²/24h, oxygen barrier of 0.1 cc/m²/24h and light barrier is achieved with metallisation and without further barriers such as EVOH or PVDC. The packaging is confirmed in independent tests to have good recyclability.
