Live green with Eurocrane – Eurocrane won Excellent Supplier Award presented by papermaking giant Stora Enso
As economy grows, environmental protection is increasingly becoming an important issue in our life, particularly in the packaging industry where the application of various eco-friendly material has become the industry`s development trend and the plastic bags that were mainly made of polyethylene has gradually been replaced by coated paper bags. Though everyone may still be unfamiliar with coated paper, it actually has already been widely used in every aspect of our life: e.g. paper cup, fast food container, milk carton, packing box, book cover, handbag and so on are all made of coated paper. Why is it so popular? Products made of coated paper not only enjoy superb quality, but are also waterproof, damp roof, more environmental friendly compared to plastic ware or other material, easily degradable and reusable. As a new green packaging material, its scope application is getting increasingly wider and its market prospect is very promising.
