Sanner expands portfolio of bio-based plastic packaging

The company first launched the bio-based packaging, made from renewable raw materials, a year ago

Sanner has expanded its Biobase packaging range, which is now available in four tube lengths with five closure variants. The tablet tube can be printed or provided with an IML label. In addition to the previous DASG 1 desiccant closure, the company now offers two DOG 1 and one DOSG 1 variant, as well as the FOG 27 Flip Top closure, which can be opened with one hand.

The company first launched the bio-based packaging, made from renewable raw materials, a year ago. Chief Sales Officer Oliver Baumann. “We have further developed the Sanner Biobase portfolio over the past months and can now tap into additional markets and meet their needs.”

The effervescent tablet packaging is approved for use with food products in both the EU and the US and are very easy to recycle.

The packaging comprises more than 90% renewable raw materials and is made from corn, sugar cane or cellulose. The substantial independence from fossil raw material deposits reduces the packaging’s CO2 footprint. Compared to petroleum-based plastics, Sanner claims, the bio based effervescent tablet packaging achieves CO2 savings of around 15%.

From a chemical point of view, the company says, the packaging is almost identical to PE or PP made from fossil raw materials. Its lower water vapour permeation reportedly ensures an approximately 40% longer shelf life of the packaged products, which contributes to lower waste. Moreover, the packaging can be processed on existing filling lines.
