Aseptic pack from 100% plant-based renewables


Friday, 14 July, 2017


Sustainably sourced, environmentally friendly packaging is being demanded by consumers and by food processors wanting to enhance the ‘green’ credentials of their products. Now, in what is claimed to be a world first, SIG has developed an aseptic carton pack with a clear link to 100% plant-based renewable materials.

The SIGNATURE PACK drives the replacement of conventional plastics from fossil fuels with certified and sustainable plant-based polymer materials. The polymers used for laminating the paperboard and making the spout originate from renewable European wood sources and are certified according to ISCC PLUS (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification) or CMS 71 (TÜV SÜD certification standard), respectively, via a mass balance system. This means that for the polymers used in the SIGNATURE PACK, an equivalent amount of bio-based feedstock went into the manufacturing of the polymers.
