Desired Outcome:

Pepsico is seeking bio-based/biodegradable coating and adhesive solutions for flexible PHA films used in food packaging to achieve our sustainability goals of 100% recyclable, compostable, biodegradable, or reusable (RCBR compliant) materials and 20% greenhouse gas emission (GHG) reduction by 2030.

Details Of The Innovation Need:

Must Haves:

• The adhesive, primer coating, or over-print varnish (OPV) should be at the least industrially compostable, preferably tested successfully for home compostability

• Laminating adhesive should have good adhesion to metal and ink (bond strength of > 50 gf/inch)

• Adhesive should be water-based, preferably solvent-less, and applicable on a flexo line. Solvent-based adhesive solutions are less preferable.

• rimer coatings are preferably water-based, but solvent-based solutions are acceptable. Need to be functional coatings for anchoring metal or provide enhanced barrier. Coatings should be applicable on our films by roll coating processes.

• OPV should be applicable on the gravure printing line and can be water- or solvent-based

Nice to Haves:

• Bio-based materials

• Solvent-free coating technologies

• Matte OPVs

• Compost compatible inks

Past Work And Out Of Scope List:

• Familiar with nano-cellulose, but recent advances are welcome
