Our goal of carbon proliferation reduction!
The affects of carbon and green house gases in the atmosphere is scientifically supported to be a cause of man made global warming. By using our plant based resins and natural fibre content (NFC’s) our aim is to make a big difference to carbon reduction, by use of our sustainable, natural life cycle plant based resources.
We don’t see a one stop solution to our modern day packaging problems, but we can offer several solutions that are stepping stones in the right direction, that can start to make an immediate sustainable contribution with every single bottle that leave the factory gate.
Polywood PE bottles reduce crude oil usage by 20%, with every single bottle made it cuts the carbon proliferation. Blend the Polywood with our Green PE and the plant based content of every single bottle can be increased to 30%, 50% or even 100%. Smart resource utillisation is your goal for a sustainable future.
Front end carbon reducing super powers, helping brands and packers take responsibility for the impact of their products at the beginning of the production process.
Every bottle out of the factory gate makes a difference in green house gas reduction, reduced reliance of fossil resources, and is a big step in taking responsibility for a sustainable packaging future. Global warming is a concern to me, your customers, and civilisation of the future.
Reducing the use of fossil resource is one of the biggest steps you can take, using products with plant based fibres or resins is carbon neutral as it is part of a sustainable grown life cycle. Regular recycling relies on recovery and re-use into an original product and the statistic’s on that are not great and not due to be great for some while.
With Polywood or other hybrid blends the savings on fossil resource carbon release are 20%+ each and every time on every bottle produced. Measurable and quantifiable.
Did you know?
For 1 tonne of PE Polymer Resin 40 tonnes of raw crude oil is used.
With 20% Polywood NFC. 1 tonne of resin saves 8 tonnes of fossil resource use.
Global Oil consumption in million metric tonnes!
Global consumption of oil has steadily increased over the last three decades, totaling, 4.01 billion metric tons in 2020, compared to 3.6 billion metric tons consumed at the turn of the century.

How much oil does it take to make a plastic bottle?
Did you know that producing plastics uses an enourmous amount of fossil fuels – around 8% of the world’s oil production, according to most estimates? Think of it like this: it takes a quarter of a litre of oil to produce a single one-litre water bottle.
How much high density polyethylene is produced each year?
By 2022, it is expected that the global prodction volume of HDPE resin will increase to approximately 67million metric tons.
