Brand owners Brand-Owner’s perspective on bioplastics and how to unleash its full potential ALDI U.S., headquartered in Batavia, Illinois, USA, announced earlier this year a series of commitments it has made to help combat the global plastics crisis. By 2025, 100 % of ALDI U.S. packaging, including plastic packaging, will be reusable, recyclable or compostable. ALDI will also reduce packaging material across its entire range by at least 15 %. ALDI U.S. has the ability to influence how its products are sourced, produced and brought to shelves because more than 90 % of its range is ALDI U.S.-exclusive. “ALDI U.S. has never offered single-use plastic shopping bags. And while we’re pleased that we’ve helped keep billions of plastic grocery bags out of landfills and oceans, we want to continue to do more,” said Jason Hart, CEO of ALDI U.S. Aldi-Süd and Aldi-Nord, in Germany where Aldi was founded by the Albrecht family in 1961, announced in June that the company will abolish free fruit and vegetable bags. From now on, these so-called knot bags will only be available made from renewable raw materials and customers will pay 1 Euro-cent per bag in all branches of the two German discounters. The companies will also be offering reusable nets from autumn 2019. MT ‘Basics‘ book on bioplastics 110 pages full color, paperback Bioplastics ISBN 978-3- 9814981-1-0 Biokunststoffe 2. überarbeitete Auflage ISBN 978-3- 9814981-2-7 This book, created and published by Polymedia Publisher, maker of bioplastics MAGAZINE is vailable in English and German language (German in the second, revised edition). The book is intended to offer a rapid and uncomplicated introduction into the subject of bioplastics, and is aimed at all interested readers, in particular those who have not yet had the opportunity to dig deeply into the subject, such as students or those just joining this industry, and lay readers. It gives an introduction to plastics and bioplastics, explains which renewable resources can be used to produce bioplastics, what types of bioplastic exist, and which ones are already on the market. Further aspects, such as market development, the agricultural land required, and waste disposal, are also examined. An extensive index allows the reader to find specific aspects quickly, and is complemented by a comprehensive literature list and a guide to sources of additional information on the Internet. The author Michael Thielen is editor and publisher bioplastics MAGAZINE. He is a qualified machinery design engineer with a degree in plastics technology from the RWTH University in Aachen. He has written several books on the subject of blow-moulding technology and disseminated his knowledge of plastics in numerous presentations, seminars, guest lectures and teaching assignments. Aldi Store in Simi Valley, California (Joe Seer / Founded by the Albrecht family, the first ALDI store opened in 1961 in Germany, making ALDI the first discounter in the world. Headquartered in Batavia, Illinois, ALDI U.S. now has more than 1,900 stores across 36 states, employs over 25,000 people and has been steadily growing since opening its first US store in Iowa in 1976. ALDI is present in about 20 countries arount the world.
