It has a high renewable share, a low carbon footprint and is designed for recycling
SIG’s groundbreaking SIG Terra Alu-free Full barrier, the world’s first full barrier packaging material without an aluminium layer for aseptic carton packs, has won Packaging Europe’s prestigious Sustainability Award 2023 in the ‘Climate’ category.
The awards are a global competition for sustainable packaging innovation and SIG was up against tough competition from all over the world. Terra Alu-free Full barrier stood out to the jury. It has a high renewable share, a low carbon footprint and is designed for recycling. Removing the aluminium layer reduces energy needs in the supply chain and contributes to lowering the CO2 footprint of packaging.
SIG is the innovator in the field of packaging materials without aluminium layer and has been since 2010. SIG Terra Alu-free Full barrier further extends SIG’s lower-carbon packaging materials without an aluminium layer for wider use with oxygen-sensitive products such as fruit juices, nectars, flavoured milk and plant-based beverages. This provides better access to healthy nutrition and reduces food waste, even in countries with complex supply chains.
