FOR THE SAKE OF OUR ENVIRONMENT

We have been developing and manufacturing biodegradable and bio-based films since the late 1990s. These products are now an integral part (permanent range) of our portfolio.

We are also constantly working on reducing the film thickness with the aim of minimizing film consumption. This saves transport and storage costs and is also resource-efficient.

Another support for securing the finite raw material capacities is our in-house recycling department. We have more than 40 years of experience in recycling polyethylene-based film waste. Today we are supported by 3 recycling plants with a production capacity of more than 5.000 tons per year.

USE NON FOSSIL

Fossil resources are finite, so our product range also includes films made from renewable and / or biodegradable raw materials.

This includes our I’m Green films, which are based on sugar cane and which consist of at least 85% renewable raw materials and are 100% recyclable. These films have lower CO2 emissions than those of fossil polyethylene.

Another non-fossil product is our biodegradable film, which is certified according to DIN EN 13432.

Use less

Conserving finite resources while maintaining the same properties - this goal can be achieved with our reduced-thickness films. Combined with the use of mineral additives, the CO2 balance can be improved even further.

Use more than once

Another contribution to the conservation of resources is the targeted use of regenerated materials. Here we recycle the production scrap into high-quality granulate using our in-house recycling methods. Depending on the application, a use of 10-100% is possible. This means that the consumption of raw materials can be reduced while maintaining the same quality.

In the non-food area, the use of post consumer recyclates (PCR) between 10 and 80% is also possible. Material from households, commercial and industrial facilities or institutes (end users) is collected and processed again into granulates in specially approved processes.

The use of post-consumer recyclates with direct food contact is not possible. For this area of application, there must be a full barrier between the product and the PCR film (e.g. drinks in cans or glass bottles).
