Chalk & Polymer Food Liquid Packaging


Ecolean’s lightweight material is made of recyclable plastic (PE and PP) and up to 35% chalk (calcium carbonate). The ingredients of this thin plastic film not only guarantee lightweight packaging, but also reduce environmental impact and optimize transport weight. The bag only weighs 16 grams, however disposal efficiency of this multilayer remains an open question.
