Lenzing's botanic packaging solutions are becoming an eco favorite
The majority of the waste polluting our seas is made of plastic - this constitutes a major burden for our environment since it can take up to 500 years for plastic to decompose. Avoiding plastic represents a major challenge but will be increasingly demanded by lawmakers and by consumers. Industry's search for sustainable and innovative materials has positioned LenzingTM fibers to make inroads in technical applications like packaging. Since the benefits of high strength, natural raw material and environmentally responsible production are gaining in importance, LenzingTM fibers are a strong alternative to conventional materials in many areas:
LenzingTM for Packaging
The packaging concepts from Lenzing are the perfect response to this challenge. Compostable biobased packaging for consumer goods does not only reduce the use of fossil fuel but also allows biodegradable materials to enter the supply chain. Wood based fiber packaging is beneficial for the consumer and has a large positive impact on the environment.
Botanic nets: 100% plastic-free packaging
The botanic packaging concept by Lenzing™ fibers for fruit and vegetables is quite simply the most innovative solution available to avoid plastics. The Lenzing™ fibers used are made from wood, a natural raw material. They are 100% free of plastic, 100% bio-degradable and can be composted at home and in industrial composting facilities. Lenzing™ fibers come from Nature and return to Nature - a sustainable cycle and something quite unique in the packaging sector.
LenzingTM short cut fibers for tea and coffee pads
Use of Lenzing™ Lyocell short cut fibres is expanding in the dynamic market of hot beverages like single serve tea bags and coffee pads. Sustainability is a key driver for Lenzing™ Lyocell in consumer products as well as the constant fibres quality and the reliability of Lenzing’s supply route.
LenzingTM fibers as an ecological preference in agriculture
Avoiding plastics is extremely beneficial and it is therefore becoming increasingly important. In the agricultural sector, Lenzing™ fibers are used since they are both bio-degradable and compostable. Thus Lenzing™ fibers create sustainable solutions for agriculture and horticulture.
LenzingTM for Agriculture: 100% bio-degradable and compostable
LenzingTM fibers are setting new standards in agriculture. For farming ropes, nonwovens and nets, LenzingTM fibers are a meaningful ecological alternative to synthetic materials for the cultivation of vegetables and fruit. LenzingTM fibers are manufactured from the raw material of wood and are completely compostable.
