Silage stretch film with post-consumer recycled material in action
At Trioplast, recycling and reducing environmental impact has been a natural part of the business for a long time. The aim is always to be market leading when it comes to sustainable plastics. However, it’s essential that the quality of the product should never be compromised. The new silage stretch film is yet another example of how both sustainability and usability can be combined.
Reduced carbon footprint
The patent pending film for bale wrapping gives new possibilities. The use of post-consumer recycled material means less need for virgin-based raw material. Carbon footprint is reduced by more than 22 % compared to conventional silage stretch film.
No limit for the future
Anders Larsson, Product Manager for Agri Stretch at Trioplast, is very optimistic about the future.
- This is just the beginning. We have major opportunities ahead of us when it comes to using recycled plastic for a circular economy. There are still many challenges with recycled materials, but we believe that this first step proves the possibility to achieve a circular economy within agri business for the future!
