March 25, 2022 (press release) –

At FIP in Lyon (April 5 to 8), NETSTAL will present an innovative thin-wall packaging application. On the fully electric ELION 1200-510, drinking cups will be produced in two cavities. NETSTAL uses KANEKA Biodegradable Polymer Green Planet™, a 100% plant-derived biopolymer, for this sustainable application.

Good prospects for packaging manufacturers: With a particularly sustainable packaging application, NETSTAL will demonstrate the high performance of its ELION series machines at the FIP in Lyon. The ECOCUP drinking cup with a volume of 0.33 l is made of 100% plant-based polymer. At the NETSTAL booth N11/M14, the ecological cup will be running on an all-electric ELION 1200-510 in a two-cavity mold from French partner SN Caulonque. The high-performance application runs with a cycle time of less than 4 seconds. "Low Energy, High Performance" has always been the motto of the successful ELION series. The proven recipe for success consists of outstanding energy efficiency, perfect precision and the high reliability that users can rely on for many years.

Thin wall packaging made from certified biodegradable biopolymer

The performance advantages of NETSTAL apply without restriction to alternative materials. KANEKA Biodegradable Polymer Green Planet™ is a 100% bio-based polymer (PHBH) produced via a revolutionary bio-fermentation process using renewable plant oils as feedstock. The polymer accumulated in bacteria is extracted and purified by a water-based process. KANEKA Green Planet™ grades are certified "OK home" and "OK industrial" compostable. Moreover, the material shows excellent biodegradable properties under natural conditions such as in soil and marine waters and will biodegrade into biomass, carbon dioxide, and water through the digestive process of microorganisms available in nature. Hence, selected KANEKA Green Planet™ grades are also certified "OK biodegradable soil and marine." The innovative polymer PHBH has been listed in the European Commission's regulation "no.10/2011" for all food type contact since 2019.
