COPY BIO – Bio-sustainable innovation, free from plastics and PLA.
The rules of the game are changing.
Copy Valls, after +2 years of R&D, presents Copy BIO, a great innovation that changes the rules of the game in the food packaging industry.
Conventional cardboard packaging ,which needs a special water or grease resistant barrier, has a plastic (PE), aluminum or bioplastic (PLA) coating that is laminated onto the paper. This difficults its recyclability.
The Copy BIO project is focused on replacing the current barriers used in cardboard packaging with a water-based alternative, therefore avoiding the use of petroleum-based plastic and bioplastics such as PLA or CPLA (derived from foods such as corn, wheat or potato).
Copy BIO, as Copy Valls’ most important sustainable innovation, is the manufacture of cardboard from controlled, PEFC certified European forests, with a water-based barrier. It is the only alternative that is 100% Biodegradable, 100% Compostable, 100% Recyclable and suitable for food packaging.
Soon we will announce more details about the Copy BIO project.
