Besides packaging from conventional materials such as plastics, metal or glass, AWANTYS Group has a strong heritage in offering components from new-to-the-industry materials such as marble, porcelain or slate. Since 2019, AWANTYS offers AWYVERDE® – a unique sustainability solution for primary packaging from an innovative 100% non-petrochemical biocompound.
AWANTYS to launch AWYVERDE® – sustainable primary packaging from biocompound ‘With AWYVERDE® AWANTYS Group offers its clients a solution to pack their cosmetic products in a truly ecological way without additional costs or limitations in their packaging’s performance. Thereby, we can fully meet the requirements of both our direct clients as well as those of the end consumers’, states Carsten Wolansky, CEO of AWANTYS Group. AWYVERDE® primary packaging can be used for skin care, make-up and fragrances. Economical alternative RCM-1801 as the underlying material deployed for AWYVERDE® is 30% – 90 % more economical than known bioplastics such as PLA or PHB. It consists of 2/3 renewables such as cellulose and of 1/3 minerals. Given that the material is produced through compounding, the amount of energy required for its production is significantly lower than in the refining processes for the extraction of conventional plastics. Truly sustainable: recyclable & compostable The underlying biocompond for AWYVERDE® primary packaging is food safe, recyclable and certified for industrial composting by TÜV Austria. It is among the few materials on the market that also decompose in home compost, water and nature after five to ten years while that requires ~ 450 years for conventional plastics. Unlike packaging from other biomaterials, AWYVERDE® does not only release water and carbons during its decomposition but also minerals that serve as nutrients for plants and micro-organisms. Easy to process & decorate AWYVERDE® primary packaging is produced in conventional injection molds and can be colored – no investment in special equipment is required. Beyond, decorations with known technologies such as metallization, varnishing, pad or silk-screen printing as well as hot foil stamping are feasible.
