Jindal Films Europe has added a new BOPE production line at the Brindisi plant to expand its production capacity by a further 50,000 MT and focus on sustainable and recyclable packaging as part of its Horizon project.
This additionally produced volume will be mainly dedicated to Jindal’s new innovative BOPE specialty film grades, including matt, sealable, coated, metalized, and Alox films. The new film developments will be focusing on fully sustainable and recyclable packaging and strongly support the circular economy.
Moreover, this high-efficiency program will also include solar power and an expansion of the current trigeneration energy systems. This will further improve the C02 footprint of the Brindisi operations.
On top of that, all these initiatives will also benefit from the close cooperation with Apulia Region Universities and the Italian Research Center based in Brindisi.
According to Jindal, the Brindisi site, with a new total capacity of 130,000 MT, will become the biggest plant in Europe for BOPE and BOPP films manufacturing.
‘We are fully committed to supporting all our customers in meeting their sustainability and recyclability objectives for packaging materials. This investment initiative results from close cooperation with Regione Puglia based on the Contratto di Programma, which we appreciate very much,’ said the company in a statement.
