With a shared goal of creating a sustainable self-adhesive labeling industry, more than 30 companies from around the world announced this week, the creation of a new Consortium, CELAB: Toward a Circular Economy for Labels. CELAB is an initiative to create greater circularity for label industry products by enhancing and promoting matrix and release liner recycling around the world.
Elkem Silicones is proud to announce their participation in the new consortium and this engagement is part of a wider sustainability program within Elkem. Sean Duffy, Business Unit Director & Sustainability Leader for Elkem Silicones Division commented "Developing a comprehensive upstream climate strategy and encouraging and investing in circular economy initiatives for recycling of silicones are part of the environment, social and governance activities within Elkem group but participating in industry efforts such as this are also important. Despite less focus on silicone recycling in CELAB we are fully aware, as a leading actor in release coatings technology it is both our duty, and in our interest, to participate and help assure a sustainable future for this industry."
