How can we help?
Green Packaging - Material Choices
PLA, PBS, PHA, PBAT, PA, PCL, PE, PHVB and PP. Do you know which one to use? And that’s only the frequently used bio-based or biodegradable plastics. We have partners that work with every different kind of bio-plastic. And per case, we are going to determine which of the bio-plastic will fit your product best.
We can also look at the other plant-based materials that are available. Think about a bamboo or pulp material for your packaging. Even combination of different plant-based materials is possible.
End Of Life Solutions
Every plant-based material has its own set of end-of-life solutions. Most bio-plastics and other plant-based materials have multiple end-of-life solutions to choose from. Together with you, as a client, we can look at the best end-of-life solution for your project. Taking into account the manufacturing process, the consumer, and the regulation within the countries the products are sold.
Some of the end-of-life solutions that plant-based products have:
Incineration, Industrial Composting, Home Composting, Chemical Recycling, Mechanical Recycling, Animal Feed Additives
Setting up a 100% plant-based PLA bottled water production line for a client in Western Europe.
The right plant-based wrapping to make a distribution center plant-based.

Regulation And Research
Is it aloud to put your industrial compostable packaging into the green bin? What end of life stream do the different countries have when it comes to normal house hold waste? What impact does the EU green deal has on your product and packaging? Al questions that we have to look at when changing to plant-based material.

Green Packaging - The Story To Tell
And why do we do all the efforts – Changing to plant-based material. Is it because;
we can lower our CO2 emission,
want to use renewable resources,
use more renewable energy,
lower the water use of our packaging,
lower the energy use of our packaging and product?
apply within the EU regulations?
stop using fossil plastic in every corner of the company.
What ever your reasons are. The story you tell to your suppliers, consumers, employees and everybody connected to your company needs to be correct.
We can support you with the data and if your marketing department need help, we can find a good support system for them as well.
Machinery And Manufacturing
An important part of the switch to plant-based is producing the new material. If you have your own production facility we will be searching for solutions to use your own machines with the plant-based material. Most of the time that’s possible with ejectment to the exciting machines. plant-based foils are often thicker, or need less pressure and heat to press into a shape. Sometimes exciting machines are not going to do the trick and we need add-ons or fully new machines for producing the plant-based materials. Then one of our many partners can support in making your new machine park.
Do you need a manufacturer for your new plant-based product or plant-based packaging? Let us look for the right partner. We have connections all over the world, to support you as a product owner, and connect you with the best manufacturers of plant-based products/packaging.
