Minimal amount of material
By using a minimal amount of material we create a lightweight package which combines low environmental impact with consumer convenience.
Our packaging material used in the Ecolean Air and Ecolean Air Aseptic packaging consists of part plastic part calcium carbonate (chalk), one of nature’s own materials. No chemical processes are necessary to extract the chalk and only limited energy is required in the production.
The package consists of 35% (by weight) of calcium carbonate and it provides strength and stiffness as well as whiteness to the package.
After disposal the package can either be material recycled as plastics or recovered as energy by incineration.
The competition is tough. Normally, newly designed packaging would last five to eight years, but today most packaging is updated every two to three years.
Ecoleans approach to saving nature’s resources may seem a simple one. Learn more about our lighter approach to packaging.
