A company focus is on the responsible disposal of matrix and liner waste, and the chance to give it new life.

Responsibly managing waste and keeping it from being landfilled is a challenge for the labeling industry. UPM Raflatac is partnering with Labelexpo Americas to provide a solution for exhibiting label converters to responsibly dispose of their label, matrix and liner waste and give it a new life in the form of energy.
