UN Approved Containers Reduce Environmental Impact
Monroe, Ohio – December 10, 2014 – KLW Plastics, a leading manufacturer of 3.5 – 7 gallon tight-head containers, is proud to announce a new line of lightweight, sustainable packaging solutions.
The E-Tainer® line of products focuses on source reduction, increased use of post-consumer resin (PCR), multi-layer manufacturing technology, and combined hybrid technology through the use of RockTenn’s precision mandrel formed Meta® corrugated cases.
This line of packaging solutions includes four new container configurations designed to meet customer demand. The E-Tainer® Global, a 950 gram, UN rated tight-head container with an international design for global uniformity, the E-Tainer® Hybrid, a UN rated 450 gram lightweight container combined with a Meta® corrugated case, the E-Tainer® Kube, a collapsible, semi-rigid bladder-in-a-box, and the E-Tainer® Flex, a bag-in-box flexible packaging solution. Environmental benefits include:
- Up to 80% less plastic used compared to a standard tight-head container
- Reduced energy use
- Corrugated weighs up to 30% less while maintaining container integrity
- Boxes are 100% recyclable
