"Our commitment is to make the Styropor® supply chain increasingly circular. BASF has been the inventor of the traditional EPS over 70 years ago. Today, thanks to our constant commitment to R&D, we can offer our customers a more sustainable version of the traditional product as part of our global climate protection efforts", said Gregor Haverkemper, Head of Marketing Styrenic Foams BASF.
In addition, Remaxigel is among the 7 winners of the Ecodesign Call launched by CONAI, the National Packaging Consortium within the Circular Creativity Section. "We are really proud of this award that recognizes our know-how, continuous focus on technological innovation and customer-driven approach", said Michele Dell’Avanzato, R&D Manager Imballaggi Alimentari Srl. "Our secret is always looking ahead. We are already working with BASF to develop a new inner shell for the tray, from recycled materials with the aim of delivering an even more sustainable Remaxigel version that meets the high requirements for food contact," he added.
