18.03.2019 Advanced plastic sack is more sustainable than paper equivalents

RKW, Frankenthal, Germany, will be highlighting at POWTECH (Stand 1-533) the five key benefits that the RKW ProVent® ECORE 5 self-venting plastic sack offers over paper sacks in terms of sustainability: it is fully recyclable, means less packaging, it offers reliable product protection, maximum moisture barrier – and enables a clean filling process. Made from 100% recyclable polyethylene, this stable packaging solution for powdery, moisture-sensitive goods has been compliant with the 2020 EU standards for more than 10 years. In the fiscal year 2018, RKW generated total sales of €878 million. About 3000 employees process 367,000t of plastic materials at 20 locations around the world.

While paper is regarded as a ‘natural’ material in the eyes of the public, plastics increasingly suffer from the image that they are unsustainable. However, in reality, plastic packaging is often a more effective and sustainable alternative to conventional paper packaging – especially in terms of recycling, material savings, product protection, moisture barriers, and the entire process chain.

With a moisture barrier up to 40 times greater than paper sacks, the contents of RKW’s new plastic sack are reliably protected – not only against moisture, but also against air, dust and dirt.


The main highlight on the RKW stand at POWTECH will be the 100% recyclable RKW ProVent® ECORE 5 plastic sack: a remarkably sustainable alternative to paper sacks
