GREEN LINE COMPAC
Against the increasing environmental awareness expressed by the sector of food production and distribution, Compac has developed a complete range of containers and trays in PLA (Polylactic Acid) and CA+PLA (Cardboard pure cellulose + Polylactic Acid), made from biodegradable materials from renewable sources.
These materials after use degrade completely producing carbon dioxide and water. The containers and the trays in PLA and CA+PLA , thanks to the good mechanical resistance of the materials, can be sealed with films in PLA and Cellulose to realize a packaging 100% biodegradable and compostable.
The Green Line is the answer of Compac to the needs of the great distribution to provide its customers products packaged with environmentally friendly packaging. In fact, this type of packaging reduces the considerable impact in terms of volume of waste to dispose of and can be retrieved with the organic fraction of household waste and sent to composting, avoiding the recourse to the disposal or to incineration.
The Compac Green Line comprises:
- Containers in Polylactic Acid (PLA) for cold food gastronomy / delicatessen / fruit and vegetables
- Containers in Cardboard+Polylactic Acid (CA+PLA) for food gastronomy to be heated
- Containers in Cellulose Pulp (PULP) for food gastronomy to be heated
- Film reel in transparent Polylactic Acid (PLA)
- Film Reel in transparent in Biopolymer
Compac materials in PLA and CA+PLA comply with the criteria for certification “OK compost” referred to the European standard EN 13432 “Packaging – Requirements for packaging recoverable through composting and biodegradation – Test scheme and evaluation criteria for the final acceptance of packaging. “
