100 % recyclable MDO films
The RKW Group is committed to its responsibility and works with its customers and partners to give plastics a sustainable perspective.
An important component of this strategy is RKW Horizon - a 100 percent recyclable MDO film made of polyethylene (PE) for packaging solutions from monomaterial laminates.
MDO technology enables the production of particularly sustainable films for flexible packaging. RKW Horizon also enables the use of post-recycled materials with the same mechanical properties as virgin materials.
RKW is investing in this future technology and will expand its production capacities in 2022 with a new nine-layer plant at the Petersaurach/Germany site.
