Eco-innovation is any innovation, new technology, product, process or service-able to contribute to the protection of the environment or to a more efficient use of resources.
For Tecnopackaging, Eco-innovations a double bet:
On the one hand, it is a perspective from which the company addresses all its activities.
We care about environmental protection and every time we design a new product, we look at issues such as re-usability, recyclability, biodegradability… This eco-innovative perspective has allowed the company to be one of the 100 eco-innovative companies in Europe recognized by the European Commission.
On the other hand, eco-innovation is a tool that we can use to help our customers to become more competitive. Through recognized academic methodologies like Life Cycle Assessment and Carbon Footprint Analysis, we can help our clients to quantify the environmental impacts of their products and/or processes..
The obtained results are extremely useful to quantify and communicate the improvements achieved through re-designing activities or new product developments.
Examples of projects:
- Supercritical Fluids application to improve the sustainability of food packaging
- Development of new packaging with lower environmental impact and improved barrier properties to extend the self-life of packaged products.
- Development of software tool based on Life Cycle Analysis´s methodology, to evaluate the environmental impact of industrial processes: ECO-TOOL
