Biodegradable plastic alternatives
First of all, to increase biodegradability, our machines work with mixes of natural fibre, or, preferably, mono-materials: feedstock that exists of solely one type of raw material. If, for instance, we can avoid the use of aluminium in cardboard composite cans, these become decomposable, or easy to recycle. Even when this is not feasible, we aim to use materials that put less strain on the environment. The use of a sealed coating instead of traditional glue is one possible solution.
Secondly, when food-grade quality is not required, we use recycled paper to produce moulded pulp products.
Thirdly, our machines deliver sturdy, long-lasting products. Depending on their purpose, they can often be reused several times, further contributing to the environment.
In short, our machinery delivers full-fledged plastic alternatives. But our contribution to sustainability comprises more than environmentally friendly packaging.
