Waste sugar cane, created from the leftovers of sugar cane extraction is bio bio-based rather than oil-based. This makes it a great alternative when looking for a carbon neutral shrink film. Call Liberty Packaging Systems today for a quote. Our films are available in a wide variety of grades and widths and work with all our shrink wrapping systems.
During the growth of the sugar cane, the polymer is initially carbon negative. The amount of captured carbon is almost equivalent to the amount of carbon expended when using oil-based polymers, which means the benefit to the environment is huge.
It’s also worth noting that sugar cane polymers are a renewable resource and don’t deplete fossil fuels, unlike their oil-based counterparts, which again is of enormous environmental benefit.
Sugar cane based polythene has a number of uses. It can be used to create bags, covers, tubes, films, wraps and stretch film, which means there are a wide variety of functions to which it can be applied.
Once the shrink film reaches the end of its useful life, it can be recycled in the UK using existing recycling streams.
