NEW FOR 2021
Biojet ® packaging has been created to deliver biodegradable transparent tubes , boxes and clampacks .
As people seek better environmental packaging solutions , Bell Packaging is delighted to announce the introduction of this exciting new product which means we can now offer a complete environmental range for new packaging projects in 2021 .
Traditionally biodegradable / compostable products are very expensive and are not widely used . There has also been concerns expressed about the viability of biodegradable products questioning what remains after the degradable process has been completed . Biojet ® answers both of these challenges . It is a much lower cost solution and has many exciting environmental credentials .
Most plastic products are made from crude oil which is converted into polymer . This is used to make plastic sheet which we use to make PET Boxes , tubes and clampacks . Our challenge has been to make these designs biodegradable but not affect the performance of the packaging while it is in use . bi-products as decaying organic matter – humus ( soil ), CO2 and CH4 both of which can be captured to produce clean energy .
Biojet ® packaging is 100 % recyclable through the normal PET recycling centres . This additive has been independently tested and complies with the Intertek Greenleaf Biodegradability Standard .
Biojet ® is 100 % organic and approved for direct food contact and therefore ideally suited for confectionery and gift packaging . Other applications include hardware , cosmetics and medical products .
Testing to date shows that Biojet ® performs in the same way as standard recycled plastic . The shelf life , appearance , clarity and strength remain constant and will only degrade when it is put in the correct environment .
Biojet ®
To make Biojet ® we introduce an additive which attracts microbes that uses plastic as their source of food and energy . These microbes can be found in landfill , the ocean floor , rivers and swamps where bacteria and microbes thrive . When the microbes meet the plastic , the biodegradation process is accelerated as the plastic is consumed . This process will only happen in the correct environment where microbes exist .
What used to take thousands of years to break down plastic now takes much less time as the microbes consume the entire product . After the process has been completed , the microbes leave behind the same
