An interesting article from Packaging News on the move away from industry-standard polythene, derived from finite fossil fuels, for ones made from a sugarcane biopolymer known as GreenPE.

Avoiding the use of fossil fuel plastic material in favour of GreenPE bags further reduces the amount of CO2 emissions and preserves fossil resources.
Just completed a major refurbishment of two Rovema machines for the nations’ favourite breakfast cereal company.
We have cleaned up and utilised the original frame and film loading mechanism but replaced the front plate components such as Jaws and Transport plus completely upgraded the PLC and Electrics.
