PackImpact 2.0, the innovative project that promotes sustainability through the evaluation of the recyclability of packaging, yet another phase of growth with the entry of the flexible packaging companies COMEXI and IFLEX that allow to significantly expand the data matrix .

With the incorporation of these two companies, the tool will offer more comprehensive studies and even more precise quantifications of the environmental impact of packaging, allowing companies in the packaging sector to develop more effective and sustainable strategies.

PackImpact 2.0 stands out for its ability to quantify the environmental impact of packaging products through Life Cycle Analysis (LCA), offer a classification of recyclability in a qualitative matrix, allow a quick and intuitive comparison of environmental impacts and generate environmental self-declaration reports in accordance with the ISO 14040 standard. In addition, PackImpact helps in decision-making at different stages of the creation process, thanks to its ability to assess the recyclability of products qualitatively, allowing- and improve management at the end of its useful life.

The tool has the collaboration of prominent players in the sector such as: unpublished, specialists in eco innovation who are in charge of the technical creation of the tool and the analysis of the carbon footprint; AIMPLAS, which provides data to improve the tool and carries out recyclability tests; COMEXI, through its Technology Center, extracts manufacturing data from its machinery to feed the tool's database; IFLEX Flexible Packaging company that participates in data extraction and coordinates mechanical recycling tests on its products; and the Packaging Cluster, leading entity of the project.

The project is co-financed by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism (MINCOTUR) through the 2023 call for the 2023 AEI within the framework of the Next Generation grants and the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan.
