Use of label waste as a raw material for building insulation

July 4, 2022

UPM

The circular economy allows recycling label release liner waste, secures the supply of PET raw material to a Finland-based chemical company, Inosence Polyol Oy, and increases the proportion of recycled raw material in Finnfoam's insulation production.

UPM Raflatac, Inosence Polyol Oy and Finnfoam have created an innovative collaboration model that improves resource efficiency. PET plastic label liner waste collected through the UPM Raflatac RafCycleTM recycling service forms a waste stream that is difficult to recycle. Now, this label liner scrap can be made into a feedstock in a process developed by Inosence Polyol, which Finnfoam then uses as a feedstock for polyisocyanurate or FF-PIR insulation.

UPM Raflatac collects PET-based film waste from its end users. Inosence Polyol Oy uses the collected waste for the production of polyol. UPM Raflatac's material flow ensures a constant supply of raw materials for polyol production.
