Sustainable success stories from 2021

Bio-based and fully recyclable

In collaboration with DELT Papir, producer of tissue and hygiene products, we have successfully introduced LDPE film from renewable resource for paper towels packaging. I’m green Polyethylene biopolymer is made from renewable resources that make a significant contribution to reducing the level of greenhouse gas emissions. Green Polyethylene made from sugarcane is a renewable alternative to Polyethylene, a thermoplastic resin largely used for packaging in consumer products industries.

Recycling of laminates

In collaboration with our partner H.B. Fuller, a leading global adhesives provider, we have demonstrated recyclability in advanced-performance pouch. Link.

Enhanced stretch hood

We have successfully produced stretch hood for pallet packaging with increased mechanical strength and holding force. The upgraded product is now on several industry sites.

Recyclable mono materials for replacing substrate/PE lamination solution

With new materials we are able to replace non-recyclable PET/PE and PP/PE packaging solution with recyclable mono material PE/PE.

Introducing recycled content wherever possible

We are ready for minimum 30 % post-consumer recycled content (PCR) in all non-food packaging solutions. In shrink film, in FFS flat film (packaging of pellets, soil…), in FFS tubular film (salt, fertilizer…), cover film and even stretch hood.

And even more recycled content with pre consumer material (post-industrial) in all non-food solutions.

Downgauging

For us downgauging of thickness was always of key importance. Last year we had big success in reducing thickness of compression film for packaging of straw and wood chips.
