Sealed Air’s PakNatural loose fill certified as biodegradable material

SADDLE BROOK, US: Sealed Air’s PakNatural loose fill solution, an innovative protective packaging product made from non-food, renewable materials, has been certified as biodegradable and compostable by three independent international organizations. In addition to its sustainable properties, PakNatural loose fill provides superior protection, produces less dust, has greater inherent strength over starch-based loose fill packaging and provides superior anti-static performance over expanded polystyrene products.

Many operations already designed for loose fill packaging can easily switch to PakNatural loose fill without making changes to their current packaging process. A number of international certification organizations have certified PakNatural loose fill as a biodegradable and compostable material. The material has received certification from Biodegradable Products Institute, DIN CERTCO and Vincotte.

“PakNatural loose fill is another example of our SmartLife commitment to sustainability through efficient packaging solutions that provide product protection while reducing costs and environmental impact through the entire supply chain. We also are committed to helping our customers make informed decisions about sustainability and our products by combining third party certification, life cycle modeling tools and performance verification,” said Ron Cotterman, Vice President, Sustainability, Sealed Air.
