BIO-FED is exhibiting at Interpack in Düsseldorf for the first time in 2017. The Cologne-based branch of AKRO-PLASTIC GmbH is specifically targeting its offer to the new statutory legislative framework on the French market.
One consequence of the new energy turnaround law in France on 1.1.2017 was a ban on conventional plastic bags for fruit and vegetables as well as foil packaging for postal items. In future these have to be biobased and biodegradable in domestic compost. “We have expanded our portfolio for the French market to include several new and highly innovative products in line with current statutory provisions and specifically designed for the French film industry, and we will be presenting them at Interpack,” says Dr. Stanislaw Haftka, BIO-FED Sales Director. These new products include the extrusion M·VERA® B5024 and B5025 which have a high proportion of biobased raw material. Both products can be composted at home and are highly transparent, making them ideal for fruit and vegetable bags.
The Cologne-based company will also be presenting its new biodegradable injection moulding products at Interpack. The BIO-FED stand can be found in Hall 9/G05.
