With sustainability at the forefront of modern manufacturing processes, there is an increasing need for innovative solutions to address the issues surrounding plastic waste. Melodea, Ltd., a vanguard in the sustainable barrier coatings industry, has responded to this call with its novel offering, MelOx NGen™.
The uniqueness of MelOx NGen™ stems from its water-based, plant-sourced constitution, which allows it to seamlessly adhere to a wide array of plastic food packaging types. The coating not only offers a remarkable barrier but also aids in extending the shelf life of a range of food items and pharmaceuticals.
MelOx NGen™ emerges as a successful spin-off from Melodea’s MelOx technology, developed primarily for paper packaging. In line with global regulatory norms, the FDA and the BfR have approved MelOx NGen™ for food contact, paving the way for its global rollout.
The introduction of MelOx NGen™ could redefine the plastic packaging landscape. Its broad applicability and superior performance properties present it as a viable alternative to petroleum-based materials currently in use. This innovative coating comes at a crucial time, in sync with the EU’s Plastic Waste Directive, promoting recycling practices and discouraging non-recyclable materials usage.
The global marketplace for sustainable solutions is growing rapidly, and Melodea’s MelOx NGen™ has already been selected as a finalist in the prestigious Sustainability Awards 2023. As the world seeks greener solutions, MelOx NGen™ promises to play a pivotal role in reducing plastic waste and fostering a circular economy.
