Aronax Technologies Spain proposes a magnetic additive that can be applied to a material, creating better air and moisture insulation – making it suitable to protect sensitive products such as coffee and medical products, while still being possible to recycle. It's Circular Materials Challenge Winner at New Plastics Economy initiative by Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
Contamination of land and seas with plastic waste is an urgent problem.
By developing an alternative to hard to recycle multimaterial plastic laminates used in packagings:
A sustainable alternative with long shelf-life and improved recyclability
In collaboration with R&D firm Andaltec, Altais Nova is developing plastic films based in a novel multifunctional additive. The result: excellent barrier properties to oxygen and moisture, and used packages that can be easily recovered from waste using magnets
