New thinner plastic film reduces plastic consumption
Fluid-Bag and Rani Plast cooperate to reduce the amount of plastic
During 2019, Fluid-Bag is replacing one of the plastic layers in the Fluid-Bag inner container's plastic film with a modified version of polyethylene film, called RaniExcell.
The RaniExcell film is purchased from Rani Plast, and this improvement has become possible as a result of continuous product development carried out by Rani Plast.
The change means that one of the plastic layers in the Fluid-Bag container has been made thinner and reduced from a thickness of 100 μm to 70 μm. In practical terms, this means that we now use approximately 300 grams less plastic in each Fluid-Bag container. Although the plastic is thinner, the strength, barrier properties and resistance of the plastic film are maintained, thanks to the use of a more modern foil structure and manufacturing method.
Plastic reduction part of the long-term environmental strategy
Reducing the amount of plastic in the container and in our packaging material is a key part of Fluid-Bag's long-term environmental strategy. During the period 2008–2018, the amount of plastic in the Fluid-Bag container has decreased by 19%, thanks to thinner plastic films and more efficient use of plastic. This has also resulted in smaller amounts of plastic spill in Fluid-Bag's production process.
