Willich, August 2012 – Bioplastics specialist, FKuR Kunststoff GmbH,presents a wide variety of biodegradable and biobased plastics for
various packaging applications under this slogan at Fachpack 2012 (Hall 7, Booth 7-334).
„Nature is our role model for packaging solutions“, says Patrick Zimmermann, Director of Marketing & Sales at FKuR. In addition to the
well-established product lines Bio-Flex® (for flexible packaging) and Biograde® (for rigid packaging), FKuR presents its ‚Green-PE‘
Compounds under the brand name Terralene®.
As Braskem’s exclusive European distributor, FKuR will be presenting pure ‘Green PE’ for the first time at a German trade show.
In contrast to traditional polyethylene, the polyethylene used for Braskem’s Green PE is made from Brazilian sugarcane, not crude oil. By using this renewable raw material, each production of one ton of ‘Green PE’ captures up to 2,4 tons of CO2 from the atmosphere and
therefore helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, ‘Green PE’ and Terralene® are 100% compatible with regular polyethylene and show identical properties. All materials can also be utilized in existing recycling streams.
Bioplastics are its own class of materials that are either made of renewable raw materials and/or enable biodegradation of the finished applications.
FKuR is one of the leading producers of Bioplastic-Compounds for flexible packaging solutions and technical products. FKuR’s range of products includes the product lines Bio-Flex®, Biograde®, Fibrolon®, Terralene® as well as the exclusive distribution of ‘Green PE’ in Europe. The close cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute UMSICHT guarantees innovation, exceptional know-how as well as outstanding product quality.
