Our Repaq®  cellulose packaging, for example, is made from PEFC certified forestry residues and composted within 42 days in a natural bioactive environment without leaving any pollutants in nature. It is plastic-free and TÜV-certified garden compostable. We combine cellulose with other compostable materials to form film composites. The good properties add up without losing the disposal character of the packaging.

With our consulting services, we provide comprehensive information on the topic of sustainability and the circular economy. In doing so, we look at the entire value chain, from the extraction of raw materials through product manufacture to proper disposal. We analyze the current state, develop concepts for optimization and accompany the implementation into existing production and packaging processes.

TIPA

TIPA® is a developer and producer of fully compostable flexible packaging solutions that break down into compost just like organic material.

Inspired by nature’s perfect packaging, TIPA® created breakthrough packaging that undergoes the same biodegradation process as organic waste, just like an orange peel or walnut shells. TIPA® displaces conventional flexible plastic with fully compostable packaging such that plastic will no longer linger in landfills for hundreds of years, but will biodegrade within months in a sustainable end-of-life process.

TIPA® solutions were designed with the goal of achieving a circular economy through a true recycling process – composting. Since its inception in 2010 by co-founder and CEO Daphna Nissenbaum, TIPA® has developed a vast portfolio of products based on innovative technology and backed by a strong IP. TIPA® works closely with businesses of all types to design and provide packaging ideal for their specific application, ranging from fresh produce and snacks to magazines and fashion apparel. TIPA® solutions are built to fit existing machinery and chain of supply systems, and operates on a global scale with compostable polymer technology that is applicable worldwide.

An estimated 8.3 billion tons of virgin plastic have been produced in the world until now, nearly 70% of which has been used only once before being discarded into landfills and open ecosystems. Waste from flexible plastic packaging has become an epidemic, littering our oceans and forests with microplastics, and polluting our air and bodies through incineration and ingestion. TIPA® is
thus actively replacing conventional plastic with viable compostable solutions to end plastic pollution.

Food and fashion industries are tackling this problem head on by utilizing TIPA® sustainable solutions, whose packaging can be found in high-end online retail stores, conventional-plastic-free supermarkets, as well as local farms, and more.

The world is transitioning into implementing sustainable solutions, as we realize how feasible it is to replace conventional plastic with a compostable alternative. TIPA® technology is revamping the industry, providing a solution where there wasn’t one before.

UBQ Materials

UBQ Materials has developed a revolutionary solution that converts Residual Municipal Solid Waste, destined for landfills, into the novel and patented UBQTM material.
Household mixed waste stream, including the organics fractions like food waste, garden trimmings, paper, cardboard, diapers, dirty plastics, as well as packaging materials are converted from seemingly heterogeneous waste streams into an entirely homogeneous material that can be used in existing plastic processing equipment.
The UBQ solution effectively enables industry to reuse wasted materials over and over again. By converting the waste into this commercially viable and valuable material, we provide the missing link between waste disposal through to new product manufacturing, transitioning from a linear extraction and consumption system to a truly circular economy.
UBQTM material is a worldwide patented sustainable thermoplastic material. It can then be used to make the kind of familiar products people use every day.
