Project description

We are a manufacturer of plastic packaging sold to 32 countries worldwide, such as envelopes and courier bags, security and sealing tapes, carrier bags and sacks. The project resuls from the company's orientation towards sustainable development and the search for solutions that improve the quality of the environment and are as biodegradable as possible. The aim of the project is to implement a fundamental change in the process of producing non-hazardous packaging by optimising the environmental parameters developed in the course of development work. The company wants to increase the sales of products made of biodegradable and recyclable materials. The purchase, testing and validation of the SAFE HYBRID technological line is planned under the project, followed by the implementation of the production process of improved packaging on that line. The new line will make it possible to reduce the thickness of layers of packaging materials, adapting our packaging to the latest market trends, i.e. thickness in the range of 30-50 µm. It will also increase automation of receipt of welded products and change from traditional materials to environmentally friendly ones, i.e. recycled raw materials, biocompostable materials and new types of polyethylene (e.g. I'm green™ Polyethylene). This will reduce the company's waste by 3.43 tons per year (20%), CO2 emissions by 86.23 tons per year and annual electricity consumption by 0.09 GWh.
