Show Preview Plastiroll

Show Preview Plastiroll Oy biodegradable film from GMO-free starch-based renewable raw material. This film reduces fresh produce waste and considerably extends the shelf life of foods. This also helps to decrease the amount of waste generated from packaging materials in retail stores. This breathable, biodegradable material is excellent for packing vegetables. Moisture will not condense on the inner surface of the film, which means that vegetables stay fresh in the package. Moreover, consumers can also use the packaging as a bio waste bag. Finnish retail specialist Kesko Food has cooperated with Plastiroll Oy for some years now. Kesko Food packages its Pirkka vegetables in Plastiroll’s biodegradable packaging. “The material is certified to meet the EN13432 standard and fulfills the criteria for biodegradability and the product safety and quality requirements for vegetable packaging,“ says Heini Haverinen, Product Quality Manager of Kesko Food. Hall 9, booth B24-4 Safepack Industries Safepack Industries of Pune, India is presenting Safecompost a biopolymer-coated paper/board biodegradable product range recently awarded the Worldstar Packaging Award 2013. Safecompost is an innovative compostable packaging material made by combining paper/paperboard and a biopolymer coating. Biodegradable coatings are tailor-made polymers offering humidity, oxygen and grease barriers and sealing ability. The biopolymers used are based on natural raw materials that come from crops, fossil sources or a combination of both. The biopolymer coating material complies with EN13432. The biodegradable laminate holds considerable promise for food packaging and consumer flexible packaging. Applications include portion packs for salt, sugar, pepper, tea, etc., disposable beverage cups for hot and cold drinks, paper wraps for ice creams, etc. Sustainability is an absolute necessity for today’s businesses. Safecompost represents Safepack’s public commitment to sustainable development, products and practices. Hall 7.1, booth E37 biopolymer paper PTT MCC Biochem Bio polybutylene succinate, or PBS is a bio-based and biodegradable polyester that is produced by the polymerisation of succinic acid (1,4-butanediacid) and BDO (1,4-butanediol). With mechanical properties similar to those of PP, bio PBS offers benefits such as renewable content, biodegradability at ambient temperature, high heat sealability, a high service temperature and compatibility with natural fibers. Bio PBS could slash the quantity of long-lasting plastic waste. That is great news for environmentally aware consumers and brands seeking to contribute to a greener world.

Show Preview Xylophane developed a renewable barrier packaging material called Skalax, which offers an efficient barrier against oxygen, grease and aroma. A thin layer of Skalax in the packaging material can prolong the shelf life of many foods and industrial products. Applications include the packaging of oxygen-sensitive dairy products or dehydrated foods, greasy snacks or pet foods, as well as aromatic products such as spices and coffee. Skalax is also a barrier against many harmful substances occurring in cardboard incorporating recycled fibres. Coated on the inside of cardboard packaging, it can prevent mineral oils in the recycled fibres or exterior printing inks from migrating into the packaged food. Skalax thus enables the safe use of recycled fibres in food packaging. Skalax is based on the natural polysaccharide xylan, which is derived from agricultural by-products and offers a sustainable alternative to oil-based plastics and metalbased barrier materials. NatureWorks NatureWorks, a leading bioplastics supplier with its naturally advanced Ingeo portfolio (PLA biopolymers), will showcase a range of innovative packaging and food service solutions. The company will also showcase applications based on new high performance Ingeo biopolymer grades. NatureWorks personnel will detail how Ingeo form-fill seal cups, for example, offer higher performance, are cost neutral, and deliver greater long-term sustainability. The cup walls are thinner, which means less material is sourced. Breakage has been reduced because of Ingeo’s strength. Less energy is used on the packaging line and less greenhouse gas emitted in manufacture. The lighter package is cost neutral. New Ingeo grades allow faster cycle times and production rates. These new high performance Ingeo grades are exceptional for food service cutlery and hot cup lids. NatureWorks will also feature a demonstration of 3D printing using Ingeo and discuss the benefits of 3D-based prototyping. Hall 10, booth A67 Hall 9, booth G03 Taghleef Industries At Interpack, TI is featuring the latest applications of its BOPLA and BOPP films. The company’s NATIVIA bio-based and compostable biaxially oriented PLA films were first introduced in 2010, and their consumption has been growing since then. Showcased applications include: flowpack of bread, fruits, vegetables and salads, box overwrap, pre-made bags and pouches, magazines, adhesive tapes and labels, windows for bags and boxes, lidding of PLA trays. The latest innovations in BOPP films consist of matt coldseal release films, high yield white voided films and clear, heat sealable BOPP films with enhanced moisture barrier.
