Sustainability award winner

Winner of a 2011 Sustainability Award from the Association of International Metallizers, Coaters and Laminators (AIMCAL) was a flower sleeve made of heat-sealable Nativia NZSS biaxially oriented polylactic acid (PLA) film.

Now in its third year, AIMCAL’s Sustainability Competition recognizes equipment, materials, or processes that reduce environmental impact, minimize energy usage or waste, and’or increase recycling. Taghleef makes the Nativia flower sleeve film from a renewable resource, corn, at its San Giorgio Di Nogaro, Italy, facility. The compostable material not only protects the flowers during transport and handling but also presents an eye-catching appearance. Compared to petroleum-based polymers, PLA offers a smaller carbon footprint due to the lower energy requirements of the production process and the carbon dioxide absorbed by the corn as it grows, says Taghleef.
