Multi-layered plastics are extensively used in the food and packaging industry due to their lightweight nature, non-toxic properties, good barrier properties, and resistance to humidity and bacterial growth i.e., chips packets, milk powder pouches, and namkeen packets, etc. However, the disposal of multi-layered plastic waste poses a significant environmental challenge as it is non-biodegradable and typically consists of different layers of plastics such as low-density polyethylene (LDPE), polypropylene (PP), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), and a metalized aluminum layer. Incineration of these waste multi-layered plastics leads to environmental pollution.

"This patent underscores Vikas Lifecare Limited's commitment to innovation and sustainability. The company continues to explore new avenues to contribute positively to society and the environment through its research and development efforts," Vikas Lifecare said in its exchange filing.
