Hazen Paper Company recently received official recognition of recyclability from two European certification authorities for the transfer-metallized product, Envirofoil. Envirofoil is Hazen’s environmentally friendly option for metallized and holographic packaging and print solutions.

After scoring Envirofoil 19 out of 20 total points for recyclability using methodology developed by the bifa Environmental Institute, Interseroh, in Cologne, Germany, authorized the use of the “Made for Recycling” quality seal for packaging made with silver or holographic Envirofoil. The Lucense Research Institute, based in Italy, granted Envirofoil the certification “Recyclable with Paper – Aticelca 501.”

Hazen president John Hazen said, “These environmental seals of approval telegraph quickly to consumers that the products they are buying are packaged sustainably. The ability to verify sustainability is increasingly important to consumers, so it is also important to brand owners, and to us.”

Envirofoil is manufactured with less than one per cent of the aluminum of traditional foil laminate or film laminates, reuses the film carrier multiple times, and is recyclable as paper, as attested by these new certifications.
