At Aquapak, a company that specializes in polymer-based material technologies, Jones will concentrate on promoting end applications for Hydropol, a high-performance polymer that enables product design to provide its much-needed functionality, while increasing recycling and reducing plastic pollution, with a focus on paper and barrier applications through extrusion coating, casting or lamination onto other materials.

When extrusion coated or laminated onto paper, Hydropol adds strength and barriers to oxygen, oil and grease, and its solubility allows 100% paper fiber recovery through paper recycling mills. As well as being biodegradable and compostable, it is non-toxic to the environment and marine-safe, so it still has a safe end-of-life if it is not disposed of as intended. It is already being used in products such as reusable, heat sealable paper mailing bags.

Commenting on his new role, Jones said: “Aquapak has developed a unique technology in Hydropol, which is recyclable, marine safe, does not form microplastics and can deliver barrier and functionality to paper. This makes the potential applications for Hydropol far reaching and very exciting. From beverages and confectionary, to personal care and home improvements, Aquapak’s technology has the potential to transform flexible packaging as we know it.”

Mark Lapping, Chief Executive Officer, Aquapak, said: “Dudley is joining Aquapak at a time when the demand for new, environmentally-friendly but functional packaging is huge. There are many market segments where Hydropol can provide end-customers with a solution which isn’t available today and help them improve their environmental foot-print without compromising product quality or the end-user experience.”
