Our attention to environmental issues has motivated us to develop sustainable solutions and to invest consequently significant resources in new production strategies and in the research of innovative materials with low environmental impact.
- We have adopted an industrial plan aimed at improving the company efficiency and maximizing the performances during the production stages. As a result, the energy consumption has been reduced by more than 20%.
- A control system regulates the energy power and it optimizes the use of resources in order to reduce the energy consumption during the production process.
- We use only energy coming from renewable sources and we have decided to utilize LED lights that allow us to spare in particular the electricity consumption. In addition, LED lights are used for the polymerization process during the serigraphic printing, which is also made with solvent-free inks.
- All our high quality plastic materials are 100% recyclable and the consumer can consequently reuse our packaging. Furthermore, the industrial waste is reused or sold to other companies for using it in other production cycles.
The research for new ecologic materials helps us in looking forward to the future with enthusiasm: the latest bioplastics and degradable, recycled or compostable materials’ solutions guarantee the same quality standards in terms of durability and reliability.
PP-Eco and PE-Eco: the ecologic solution for an high quality packaging
Our PP-Eco and PE-Eco packaging has been developed in order to satisfy the new market demands asking for ecological solutions aimed at protecting the environment.
The degradable polypropylene and polyethylene (PP-Eco and PE-Eco) maintain the physical characteristics of the classic plastic materials: strength, flexibility, and durability. In this way, these materials guarantee high performances and they protect the product inside the bag. PP-Eco and PE-Eco derive from a mixture of polypropylene or polyethylene and a substance that starts the degradation process only in active microbial environments. Therefore, they can be easily stocked in warehouses, offices and shops.
The microorganisms are attracted to the plastic material and they begin to secrete acids that break down the polymer chain by using its carbon backbone as an energy source. As a consequence, the degradation starts and the organic molecules are eaten as nutrients.
BIOPLASTIC: the biobased material coming from the sugar cane
As essential part of our production system, this bioplastic is a valid alternative to the use of classic polyethylene (PE). It is completely recyclable and it has the same technical and physical characteristics of its equivalent plastic material, e.g. the polyethylene.
The bioplastic comes from the sugar cane, a renewable vegetable source. The ethylene is extracted from the biomass produced during the third squeezing of the sugar cane which occurs only after the production of sugar.
During the production of bioplastic, there is also a lower emission of CO2 in the atmosphere and the sugar cane is grown in plantations far from protected areas where the workers are protected from labour exploitation.
The recycled polyethylene is produced with the industrial waste and it is completely recyclable. This material maintain also the same characteristics of the classic polyethylene in terms of durability and mechanical performances.
Among our different sustainable solutions, we offer various material types which are produced with plants or biodegradable polymers. In accordance with UNI EN 13432, they can degrade in few weeks only if there are the conditions of an industrial composting plant.
