Bio-based PE shrink film
A new generation of ultrathin shrinkfilm
Bolloré launches B-Nat® , the first ultrathin packaging shrink film developed from a base of green polyethylene.
B-Nat® consists for more than 40% of a polyethylene produced from sugarcane ethanol.
A sustainable alternative to fossil raw materials
In the current global context of high fossil fuel dependency, and facing the depletion of the planet’s resources, sugarcane derived ethylene is a sustainable alternative.
Natural resources are renewable. The green polyethylene resulting therefrom provides the same performance as a fossil polyethylene. At the end of its useful life, the recycling properties are identical to those of a petrochemical PE.
Sugarcane for a lower environmental impact
Bolloré has chosen a green PE from Brazil-based supplier Braskem.
• Sugarcane ethanol generates more units of renewable energy for each unit of fossil energy used in its production than corn ethanol and sugar beet ethanol.
• Its cultivation does not occur on arable land and has no impact on food production areas.
• Sugarcane is water efficient compared to other bio-based materials.
B-Nat® is developed to minimise its environmental impact.
• B-Nat® is developed to offer the most attractive shelf presentation. Therefore, its optic properties are optimised.
• Its cohesion strength makes it a good candidate for multipacking applications.
• The unique technical properties of B-Nat® ensure excellent results, from manual to automatic high speed machines.
• B-Nat® is available in a thickness of 15μm, flat or centerfolded.
• Information on printed B-Nat® can be obtained on simply request.
