AMB promotes sustainable rigid and flexible film solutions

AMB’s manufacturing processes conserve as much resources and raw materials as possible, thus meeting the strict specifications for product protection, performance, and sustainability

AMB, headquartered in north-east Italy, delivers sustainable solutions for rigid and flexible films. The company offers a comprehensive approach that includes all aspects of the packaging process: design, tooling, product specification, film production, print design and application. For many years, it has presented PET solutions that support recyclability in packaging.

Extensive PET knowledge

AMB deploys specialised technology that ensures its PET products perform consistently and meet precise specifications for colour, surface, thickness, formulation and function. In addition, all manufacturing processes are as sustainable, conserving resources and raw materials. Taken together, all these aspects enable the company to offer total PET packaging solutions with the strictest specifications for product protection, performance and sustainability.

Enabling tray-to-tray recycling with AMB TrayRevive

To create its TrayRevive product, AMB partnered with B. For Pet, an Italian recycler. This collaboration ensures that post-consumer trays can be processed to produce rPET flakes for food packaging.  AMB TrayRevive utilises post-consumer trays which are broken down into flakes and then used to manufacture a tray-to-tray product. The raw material undergoes a strict process of analysis: it is checked for contamination, and the quality of the flakes is evaluated to make sure that they are of food-grade quality. This investment in recyclability enables AMB to claim that TrayRevive closes the loop of the circular economy.

Supporting end-to-end sustainability with AMB TotalMono PET

Using 100% mono PET solutions for both top and bottom films has many benefits. One of the main advantages is that the lower thicknesses of AMB TotalMono PET compared to multilayer products means less plastic is needed for production, which leads to a reduction in material waste. Additionally, the lightweight nature of AMB TotalMono PET also contributes to energy savings. Less space is required for transport, which results in fewer trucks on the road and less fuel consumption. This reduces carbon emissions and promotes more sustainable practices within the industry.

Another key benefit of AMB TotalMono PET is its high barrier protection for sensitive foods, which can extend their shelf life and reduce food waste. By reducing food waste, we can ensure that sustainability is not only achieved during the production process but also on the shelf.

Overall, AMB’s 100% mono PET solutions are an example of how sustainability can be integrated into packaging production while also providing performance benefits.

Customer service and product innovation

AMB has recently launched an innovation programme with Skipso, a provider of advisory services and management platforms that allows enterprises to structure and manage their innovation initiatives in one place. Through the platform, AMB intends to collaborate with start-ups that are developing cutting-edge solutions for sustainable packaging, smart packaging, and shelf-life quality.

“From day one AMB’s drive for innovation has been key to our own growth and to the success of our customers,” said Jamie Davies, market and communications director of AMB. “This drive is backed up by a sales team that has a proud track record of finding the right solution for every application; by expert technical support that ensures customer products meet exact specifications, and by customer service representatives, who respond to every request and ensure deliveries are always made on time.”
