Packaging decomposes like orange peel

Packaging decomposes like orange peel

Tipa is launching its next generation, bio based and fully compostable flexible packaging solution in the UK.

With the same end of life organic waste properties as the food it wraps, the packaging is just as transparent, durable and impermeable as ordinary plastic packaging. However, unlike other commonly used materials on the market, the packaging biologically decomposes in just 180 days and becomes a fertiliser for soil, behaving similarly to an orange peel.

Available for a range of packaging formats and products, Tipa’s offering currently comprises standalone and printed coextruded transparent and high transparent cast films, which are sealable and printable on both sides and typically used for the packaging of fresh produce, bakery and grain-mill products. In addition, its transparent and non transparent laminate series is offered for a variety of food segments and packaging applications, including stand-up pouches, bags and pillow packs, among others, for products such as granola bars, potato chips and other snacks, grains and dried foods and vitamins capsules.
