Flexible Packaging Products
Our Flexible Products & Services business developed a line of products including the LiquiBag, Smart drum and Ocra BOC Containers that are foldable containers with solid side walls suitable to transport liquids and pastes.
The containers are easy to reuse, as the packing is foldable so it can be sent back from the discharging point to the filler. They can be filled easily in one area, transported safely long distance and emptied in a far-away destination.
One truck with empty foldable liquid bags can carry empty packaging for a total of 768,000 liters of liquids, whereas with solid packing this is restricted to 48,000 liters.
The manufacturing process of these flexible containers uses fewer raw materials and less water. For example, an estimated production of 30,000 units of containers would result in a reduction of: packaging waste of 210 tones of HDPE and metal, fresh water consumption of 135 million liters and CO2 emissions as a result of a reduction of 1.76 million liters of diesel usage.
