MIVAS is fully committed to the circular economy in order to contribute positively to the necessary sustainability of production and consumption processes in terms of environmental impact. We want to do this by looking for new circular packaging systems for both the bio-cycle (bio-compostable materials) and the technical cycle (reuse, recycling and bio-based) in cooperation with various parties: customers, suppliers and scientists (University of Antwerp).
“Innovation” is the key word. For example, MIVAS has developed a new shrink machine that can shrink bio-compostable films. Something that was not possible before because of the impact of the heat of a conventional shrink tunnel on the material. We have a patent for this since April 2021.
