The two new products, Doxess Reborn and DX Reborn, by Doxa Plastic, integrates bio-based linear low-density polyethylene, which is produced from renewable feedstock. The feedstock comes from residues of paper production from sustainably managed forests in Finland. Unlike other alternative renewable feedstocks, it does not compete with the human food chain and no extra land is required for its production. The stretch films are then produced in Doxa’s factory in Sweden, benefiting from a short supply chain, which also contributes to reducing carbon footprint related to logistics.
“Our vision for 2020 is to offer our customers the option to choose carbon reduced versions of all our products. These bio-based resins are a major contributor to help us achieve this because they enable us to move towards a carbon reduced stretch film,” says Sandra-Stina Vesterlund, Managing Director at Doxa Plast.
The new bio-based stretch films is optimized for downgauging without compromising on functionality. Using a patented technology, Doxa Plastics offers thinner stretch films (down to four microns of thickness), that maintains a high level performance for improved load pallet stability and reducing overall packaging material.
“Both Doxess Reborn and DX Reborn makes it possible to reduce, reuse, recycle and redefine plastics without compromising when it comes to performance, and therefore meet our customer’s business and sustainability needs. At Doxa Plast we do not compromise, we stretch the possibilities”, says Sandra-Stina Vesterlund, Managing Director at Doxa Plast.
