DuPont: Winning Breakthrough

EcoLean Group's Lightweight Packaging


"Revolutionary new approach to aseptic packaging cuts package weight by 50 percent and uses natural material to significantly reduce raw materials in the construction. Innovative design and use of materials enables tremendous resource reduction and energy savings. The handle design eliminates the need for a separate rigid pouring holder. Empty packages weigh just 14 grams, a nearly 50 percent weight reduction compared to cartons, which are the current standard for aseptic packaging. Use of calcium carbonate (chalk) reduces the amount of polymer needed in the structure. The low weight and volume enable shipping substantially higher quantities per truck. Recognized for Enhanced Performance and Clean Production."
