Bio-products are getting high demand in every market and the reason is around our house. Main element of pollution and contamination is ‘plastic’. Single use plastic or non-recyclable plastic has become a headache for the entire population on this planet, including animals on land and in the sea. Plastic has a life of more than 500 to 1,000 years on earth and it contains toxic chemicals which can be a major cause for respiratory diseases while burning.
TIPA Corporation works on the solution to cut off the use of petroleum-plastic and move to more sustainable and eco-friendly substitute to it. They are manufacturing films and transparent sheets from elements of nature. Their compostable films and laminates emulate the properties and functionality of conventional plastic materials such as Polyethylene and Polypropylene.
Conventional flexible plastic packaging is a rapidly growing segment, yet historically less than 4% of flexible packaging is recycled. Conventional flexible plastic Flexible plastics are the #1 polluting source to our oceans, with a minimum of 5M tons (of 11M) discarded each year to sea.
Unlike rigid plastics, flexible plastic packaging lacks a circular solution because it is often made by blending several materials, is contaminated by food, and is too lightweight for separation and recycling. The challenge brands and consumers face is that single-use flexible plastic is an inexpensive, lightweight, and storage-compact packaging solution. TIPA developed a packaging that mimics these valuable qualities but is made with materials that return safely to the biosphere.
Providing Solutions for the Food & Fashion Industries
Food and Fashion industry is one of the largest consumers of single use plastic which mainly ends up in landfills. This makes our soil and water bodies contaminated and unhealthy.
Over 60% of flexible plastic packaging is consumed by the food industry. In order to enable compostable packaging solutions that will replace conventional flexible plastic packaging, we cover a range of applications in the segment, including dry food, fresh produce, meat, spices, powders, coffee, supplements, bars, and more. TIPA’s portfolio includes home compostable one-ply films in a variety of thicknesses and industrially compostable multi-ply laminates in a variety of thicknesses with varying barrier capabilities.
An estimated 180 billion polybags are used every year for fashion, apparel, and accessories. As awareness of plastic pollution increases, brands are seeking a waste-free solution to pack their products. TIPA provides fully compostable polybags, zipper bags, mailers, garment bags, and more. TIPA’s solutions provide a replacement for single-use plastic packaging in the fashion and apparel industry.
