In a bid to continuously to the packaging industry’s mission to reduce environmental impact and waste, Lifoam Industries has released the Envirocooler™ insulated shipper with Bioffex™ technology.
Shifting from traditional expanded polystyrene (EPS), this product is manufactured from plant-based raw materials. This means that its components are 100% renewable, and are in fact compliant with the ASTM D6400-19 standards for industrial compostability. This Envirocooler™ variant decomposes in less than 3 weeks, which reduces waste and impact on the environment.
Besides its eco-friendly properties, its efficiency is comparable to that of traditional EPS foam shippers. It provides protection of payload and stable temperature control. In particular, it meets strict specifications for temperature-sensitive products.
“We are excited to see this product take off and for the positive impact it will have as we replace traditional EPS foam with a technology that is made of renewable and bio-based materials and will degrade in under three weeks” said Mark Gettig, President of LifeMade. “Companies can expect the same performance, reliability, quality, and usability of traditional EPS while reducing their environmental footprint,” Gettig said.
The Envirocooler™ is a great sustainable alternative and switching to this product can be done seamlessly, without any grave effects on cold chain distribution lines.
