BioFlex is a sustainable packaging technology that increases the natural microbial activity in modern landfills. BioFlex is a low-density polyethylene plastic that looks and works like most plastic containers but breaks down and won’t remain in a landfill for generations. It is also completely recyclable and should be comingled with existing plastic recycling.
“We know that much of the waste created from produce packaging is due to either a lack of recyclability where consumers live, or that the bag was simply thrown away in the non-recyclable trash receptacle. Now with BioFlex, at a minimum, our bags will convert to biogas within 3.562 years in a landfill. It won’t matter if the bag was disposed of correctly, it will still break down,” said Triou.
“We have added BioFlex packaging technology to our growing list of sustainability efforts to protect our consumers and the environment,” said Dave Masser, president of Masser Family of Cos., which will feature its potato products in BioFlex packaging at this week’s SEPC Innovations show in Charlotte, NC, at booth No. 503.
