Packaging and sustainability

Sustainability has been a hot item for years and the packaging industry is certainly not standing still. In recent years, for example, numerous innovations have come onto the market in the field of packaging films. What are your options when it comes to sustainable packaging? And what are we actually doing at DL Packaging to make our own business operations more sustainable?

Bio foil and paper foil

One of the ways in which packaging can be made more sustainable is by using other types of films. Bio foil, for example, made from biodegradable materials. But paper foils are also emerging, where paper is coated in such a way that it is sealable. If that is a "natural" coating, the consumer can simply throw away the packaging material along with the waste paper.

Adjustments to packaging machines

These materials often require adjustments to the packaging machine. Fortunately, at DL Packaging we have the expertise and the technical capabilities to easily implement these adjustments. When you send us a few meters of the packaging material, we can quickly indicate which adjustments are necessary to process the material without any problems.

Sustainable business operations

DL Packaging itself also has sustainability as an important core value. In fact, recycling and reuse are actually the basis of our entire company, because we completely rebuild and renew existing machines, give as many parts a second life as possible and thus contribute to the reuse of valuable raw materials. But we are also placing increasing emphasis on sustainability in our business operations. For example, our entire company was equipped with LED lighting this year, we will receive solar panels and several charging stations for electric cars will be installed in our parking lot.
