A recently updated and extended study by the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research (ifeu), commissioned by Flexible Packaging Europe (FPE), appears to underline the original study’s findings.
FPE says it ‘shows clearly that flexible packaging is a more effective route to resource efficiency and reducing carbon footprint than using rigid packaging formats or focusing entirely on recycling’.Polymers Graphene 100%BioPackaging
Monforts customer Rajby Textiles is the first company in world to have finally achieved the Cradle to Cradle (C2C) Platinum Standard for a product. Its Beluga denim fabrics have gained sustainability score in all 5 categories covered by C2C standard, which is acknowledged as involving the toughest and most thorough assessment possible to put a product through.Polymers Graphene 100%BioPackaging

Novozymes has announced the launch of a new yeast technology, Innova Fit, which is expected to help ethanol producers break bottlenecks while creating plant efficiencies.
The new product is reportedly the most advanced non-GM yeast available, eliminating production constraints caused by conventional and basic yeasts.
“Conventional yeasts often cause plants to struggle with the rigors of today’s fermentation challenges and production demands – and producers are left without choices and hands are tied,” explained Brian Brazeau, Novozymes’ vice-president of bioenergy commercial and president, North America. “Our goal is to advance the entire industry through our microbial expertise; Innova Fit overcomes the major challenge of advancing and debottlenecking fermentation.” Polymers Graphene 100%BioPackaging
