Increasing ocean pollutions
Seas and lakes are of vital importance for industries related to fishing. Large amounts of plastic waste end up in the seas, and studies show that the remains of such waste are present in the internal organs of saltwater fish and other species.
78% of sea pollutions are linked to plastics. EcoFishBox (EFB) is completely free from Expanded Polysterene (EPS) with minimal plastic content hence the Stora Enso’s fibre-based EcoFishBox™ packages are the optimal choice both from a business and an environmental perspective.
The EcoFishBox is a complete packaging solution
EcoFishBox comes in 3 different sizes and can be fitted with 3 kinds of lids to suit retailers need. Sizes are 5, 10 and 20 kg.
Lids comes as:
1. Flat sheet lid (covers top),
2. Half hood lid (covers top and half of the sides)
3. Full hood lid (covers top and sides)
Double walled cardboard boxes keeps the goods below 4 degrees celsius beyond 64 hours and are easily cleaned and recycled together with all other cardboard boxes.
Up to 7 times less transportation space needed
Compared to an EcoFishBox™ delivered as a flat corrugated board sheet, a traditional EPS fish box takes seven times as much space in storage and during transport. The introduction of EcoFishBox™ packaging provides considerable reduction in the daily need for lorry transport and storage space – and that means lower costs!
In addition, in waste handling, transportation and recycling costs of corrugated packaging can be achieved as much as 60% savings compared to EPS packaging.
EcoFishBox can be implemented in existing EPS operation flows including usage with palletizing robots. Stora Enso also offers complete automation solutions for conveyors, palletizing and ice packing.
