How Beverage Cartons Become more Sustainable with Sabic’s Renewable Polyethylene
Press release, PROCESS worldwide, 5 February 2016
More and more consumers know about their CO2-Footprint and are increasingly demanding climate-neutral packages. The packaging enterprise Elopak wants to achieve absolute sustainability by 2020. In 2014, Elopak became the first company in the liquid packaging industry to introduce a carton made of 100% renewable materials. In the need to find a truly sustainable coating, the company decided to work with the chemical company Sabic, which offers a portfolio of both renewable polyethylene (PE) and polypropylenes (PP), certified under the ISCC PLUS certification scheme, an independent system for the chemical industry to prove sustainability of bio-based products.
