Storopack Introduces Air Cushions Made from 100 Percent Recycled Material
The protective packaging specialist, Storopack, is launching a new air pillow film that is produced from 100 percent recycled material. AIRplus® 100% Recycled offers the same outstanding and resistant protective properties as conventional air pillows. Storopack is a pioneer in the production of a 100 percent recycled film with a mixture of post-consumer and post-industrial waste.
AIRplus® 100% Recycled is recyclable and should be added to the recycling loop after use. The lower material use of air pillows compared to other materials can also save costs. The result is 16 percent less greenhouse gas emissions during production compared to air pillow films made from virgin material. Due to the light weight of air pillows CO2 emissions are also reduced in the entire logistics chain compared to alternative materials. The use of recycling material also saves fossil resources.
Storopack Commits to Improving the Circular Economy
With AIRplus® 100% Recycled, Storopack is expanding its product portfolio of flexible protective packaging made from 100 percent recycled material. In addition to the new air pillow film, numerous PAPERplus® paper cushions and the PELASPAN® packaging chips are made entirely from recycled raw materials. Many other products already contain a significant percentage of recycled or renewable material.
