At K 2019, Starlinger & Co. Gmbh is presenting a closed loop system for big bags made from woven polypropylene . The sustainable concept ‘circular packaging’ will be Starlinger’s main theme at K 2019 as well as at the Starlinger Open House in Weissenbach, Austria.
Worldwide, more than 380 million four-loop big bags are sold every year, which equates to an annual recycling potential of around 800,000 tonnes of material.
Starlinger will be introducing K show visitors to an elaborate concept for a closed loop for big bags. A closed loop has the advantage that production occurs within a quality assurance system, and the materials used are documented in a ‘material passport’. In co-operation with Louis Blockx and LC Packaging, Starlinger has simulated this loop and produced new big bags from fabric with high rPP content.
Samples are available at K show and prove that Starlinger rPP big bags show the same quality as big bags made from virgin material in terms of tensile strength, weight, and safety.
