Elplast Group is teaming up with Finnish cleantech company Woodly Ltd in a venture to produce a new product by using Woodly® material – The Woodly EL-ZIP® Press to Close Zipper.
Woodly® is an entirely new, wood-based and transparent packaging material. It is a carbon-neutral material with cellulose from sustainably managed forests. Woodly’s carbon footprint is smaller than that of other similar materials. In addition, it has been designed to be recyclable, making it fully integrated in a circular economy. If Woodly products end up in combustible waste, the energy recovered yields 70% less fossil-based carbon dioxide than burning traditional plastics.
