Not only does it combat maritime pollution, but it also boasts impressive CO2 reduction and sustainability benefits. Learn more about this innovative partnership between Duo and Plastix and their commitment to a greener future

Duo has launched a shrink film that is made from plastic waste from fishing gear.

Duo, a leading manufacturer in the packaging industry, has set its sights on the FMCG market with its latest venture - the production of shrink film for food and beverage outer packaging. But what sets this product apart is its use of Oceanix recycled plastics, made from a staggering 98% of maritime waste, including discarded fishing nets and ropes.

This revolutionary technology, developed by Plastix, not only benefits the packaging industry, but also has a significant impact on the maritime industry. By minimizing waste fishing gear pollution, Oceanix helps prevent harmful materials from ending up in our precious oceans.

But the benefits don't stop there. According to a recent life-cycle assessment, Oceanix provides an impressive 94% reduction in CO2 emissions when compared to virgin plastics. Hans Axel Kristensen, chief executive at Plastix, proudly states, "Our independent LCA study on Oceanix not only shows world class CO2 reductions, but also highlights its 11 times more efficient use of freshwater, five times more efficient in reducing ocean acidification, and 43 times more efficient in reducing fossil resource use, compared to virgin plastics."

At Plastix, it is their mission to combat maritime plastic pollution and offer sustainable solutions to the world's climate emergency. And their partnership with Duo is a perfect example of this mission in action. Zoe Brimelow, brand director at Duo, explains, "This partnership with Plastix was an easy choice; their recycled plastic ticks so many boxes for us as a business. Not only is it an innovative solve to a big environmental problem, but the quality of the green recycled pellet makes for a standout end product too."

With their expertise in packaging and a strong commitment to sustainability, Duo is well-equipped to produce shrink films containing Oceanix. And with a growing demand for recycled plastic alternatives, they are excited to begin rolling out these products in the coming months. Together, Duo and Plastix are making a positive impact on the environment and paving the way for a more sustainable future.
