Cincinnati, OH – Jan. 12, 2005 Storopack, Inc. introduces RENATURE® Special, the first interior cushioning material that is completely biodegradable and still meets the highest standards of packaging protection. Made from annually renewable resources like potato and wheat starch, RENATURE® Special is environmentally friendly at a cost comparable to a high quality EPS loose-fill.
This versatile cushioning material is lightweight – at just 5 pounds per cubic foot it is lighter than traditional EPS loose-fill alternatives. It is clean and free flowing, thus speeding packing operations. Naturally static-free, RENATURE® Special is ideal for many applications, including shipping of electronics, glassware, ceramics, giftware, and others.
While highly resistant to humidity, RENATURE® Special will disintegrate completely, in just 13 minutes, when in direct contact with water. It breaks down into naturally occurring components, so RENATURE® Special can be composted without residue, and with no groundwater pollution. RENATURE® Special is the result of intensive research in natural raw materials and innovative engineering.
In addition to supplying cushioning materials, Storopack can provide complete systems – from simple dispensing hoppers to custom designed, fully automatic pneumatic delivery systems – engineered for the unique needs of biodegradable materials. On-staff engineers and technicians survey existing packaging systems, design around current shipping room constraints, and provide assistance at each step of the process.
Storopack, Inc., is the world’s largest manufacturer, converter and recycler of expanded polystyrene (EPS) whose primary activities include the conversion of EPS, natural starch and paper cushioning products. In addition to providing the industry’s broadest line of protective packaging, Storopack also designs and supplies loose-fill storage and delivery systems.
