BioZ: innovative oxo-biodegradable transit packaging

We all know that controlling the amount of packaging waste is a challenge across the globe. Indeed, many of your clients will be targeting you and financially rewarding success in reducing their environmental impact caused by packaging waste.

At Lindum Packaging we have worked with a specialist lab to create something unique – our BioZ technology.

BioZ is a technology which when applied to our existing plastic products triggers degradation after 6 to 12 months – significantly quicker than in existing packaging plastics.

Existing fully biodegradable “plastic” materials, produced from sugar starch, are comparatively expensive and have drawbacks. These biodegradable products cannot be mixed with any other plastics for disposal/recycling as they cannot be recycled and will contaminate the recyclable plastics.  This creates a need for separate disposal methods for biodegradable and recyclable waste which increase costs and hassle.

In addition, these other “biodegradable” plastics generally break down into smaller and smaller particles, which ultimately become a mass of micro beads which often end up in the sea. The issue of micro-beads is well discussed and documented. These products do reduce the environmental impact but are also creating new challenges too.


BioZ – revolutionising bio-degradable plastics

BioZ has been developed specifically to address the issue of plastic waste that gets into the environment and to find a credible alternative. Designed in the UK by a company with over 30 years of research and development behind them, BioZ is already revolutionising the fight against flexible packaging litter around the world and we are delighted to be incorporate this mould-breaking product into our packaging.

Rather than becoming harmful micro beads like current products, BioZ breaks fully down and reverts to just carbon and oxygen, and in fraction of the time too. This complete degradation means no trace is left to pollute the environment.

What’s more, BioZ waste can be recycled, so it can be collected and disposed of with other plastics without causing any contamination.

With our planet’s welfare being such an ever more important concern to us all, we’ve added to our ability to significantly reduce your packaging waste by providing a ground-breaking greener alternative.

Of course, less packaging means less cost for you too, and so take a look at how our approach to packaging reduction and also how BioZ have had a significant impact with Thornton’s Chocolates.

Take a look at how we used BioZ bio-degradable packaging products in the case study below.

43% reduction in pallet wrap usage for Thornton’s

Lindum were asked to assess current packaging processes and identify opportunities for improvement and costs savings, whilst at the same time suggesting a more environmentally friendly solution for wrapping pallets.

We identified the following issues across the 8 sites that the machine pallet wrap in use varied which meant usage was much higher than necessary and pallet presentation across the sites was inconsistent & that poor performing product meant pallet wrap rolls were discarded before they were finished…
