We are committed to developing sustainable packaging solutions.

To us at PAXXUS, sustainability isn’t just built into our products, but part of our company culture. Through company-wide initiatives we ensure plant energy conservation, high air quality standards of plant emissions, waste reduction programs reducing our landfill disposal, materials down gauging reducing the amount of post-consumer disposal as much as 50% which helps companies meet recycling waste stream objectives.

Sustainability Downgauged

Downgauged Structures

Our leading-edge technology enables the creation of high-performance structures that achieve the same performance with far less material. Our proprietary manufacturing techniques enable us to replace certain complex structures with fewer layers using less resin.

Sustainability Solvent free

Solvent-Free Structures

Whenever possible, we employ our  proprietary solvent-free technology to create high performance solutions. This can result in material usage reductions of up to 20% when compared to conventionally-laminated structures. Our award-winning Triad® product line is just one example of the success that can be achieved with this approach.

Sustainability Recycle Ready

Recycle-Ready Flexible Material

We are committed to developing sustainable packaging solutions for the healthcare industry. Our StreamOne® material was introduced over 10 years ago as recycle-ready PET. Today, the Stream™ family has grown to be compatible with #1, #2, and #5 waste streams.

Sustainability reduced energy

Reduced Energy Usage

Improvements to our manufacturing facility and practices have significantly reduced our energy requirements. To convert solvent emissions to environmentally neutral compounds, we replaced our catalytic afterburners with state-of-the-art thermal oxidizers. This resulted in a 60% reduction in fuel (natural gas) usage. Converting the facility lighting from fluorescent to a higher-efficiency alternative has resulted in a 31% improvement in energy efficiency and a 76% decrease in bulb usage (positively impacting disposal rates).
