Mainetti’s global research and development team has created M-Film™, our exclusive line of flexible packaging films that consider the base material’s composition and its end-of-life. M-Film™ is available in a range of thicknesses and recycled content percentages. It is the ideal base material to use in Mainetti’s Polyloop, offering a clean, consistent film that can be reused in a closed-loop process.
M-film™ Air is a good solution for light weight or thinner plastic bags, made with up to 100% recycled content. These products help brands looking to reduce the use of virgin material.
M-film™ Land is our premium solution for polybags. The film is produced from organic polymers, which significantly enhance the rate of biodegradation.
M-film™ Earth is our solution for industrial compostable bags that are produced from resin-based products derived from fully renewable resources.
Mainetti Polyloop is a closed-loop recycling initiative that enables retailers to promote circularity in their operations. We integrate circular economy principles into the design and manufacture of our products, and with Polyloop, Mainetti can provide customers with a solution to address the single-use plastic challenge. Our revolutionary clear polythene recycling system allows for plastic currently in circulation to stay in the supply chain longer without downcycling the material.
Mainetti is committed to reducing the use of virgin plastic in our operations. We are working with international partners and the world’s largest retailers to provide sustainable packaging solutions to move the industry forward. Mainetti’s innovations in films, processes and services enable customers to meet their ambitious targets for the use of plastics, while our material science experts continue to search for ways to make better use of the plastic we already have.
Global Recycled Standard (GRS)
A voluntary product standard for tracking and verifying the content of recycled materials in a final product. The standard applies to the full supply chain and addresses traceability, environmental principles, social requirements, chemical content, and labeling. GRS covers processing, manufacturing, packaging, labeling, trading and distribution of all products made with a minimum of 20% recycled material.
Recycled Claim Standard (RCS)
An international, voluntary standard that sets requirements for third-party certification of recycled input and chain of custody. The objective of the RCS is to increase the use of recycled materials, alignment of recycled definitions and to track and trace recycled input materials. RCS provides consumers with a tool to provide assurance that materials are recycled and in a final product.
International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC)
A global certification system covering all kinds of bio-based feedstocks and renewables catering to energy, food, feed, and chemicals sectors. The objective of ISCC is to provide sustainability solutions for fully traceable and deforestation-free supply chains. ISCC focuses on ecological and social sustainability, compliance with laws and international treaties, monitoring of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and good management practices.
