Diversey, a global leader in hygiene, infection prevention, and cleaning solutions, has launched a pioneering initiative: “SafePack™” pouches. They are fully recyclable and the first of their kind that are also UN-approved for classified liquids. These pouches aid their customers in lowering carbon emissions, reducing plastic waste, and meeting the highest standard for recyclability and safety.
This latest innovation is a further step in the company’s corporate ambition. Pouches with concentrated products are one of the most efficient cleaning & hygiene propositions. They allow users to refill reusable spray bottles over and over again, thus improving plastic reuse and minimizing waste. By now ensuring that the pouches are fully recyclable, Diversey is providing a greater contribution to the circular economy.
This was achieved by reconsidering the design, production method, and materials used. The new SafePack™ pouches are made from monolayer Polyethylene; a better option for the environment and easier to be recycled, while the cap and label can be removed. A new production method ensures that no material is wasted.
Diversey’s new SafePack™ pouches are an evolution of their predecessors. Still providing an excellent robust and drip-free design that meets the highest standards for recyclability and safety, they deliver additional unique benefits:
- United Nation-approved pouches for ADR (classified) liquids.
- 1.5L pouches upgraded to 2L; larger in size makes for less waste.
- Reduce plastic waste.
- Reduce carbon footprint.
- Lower CO2 emissions.
- Meet customers’ sustainability demands.
- Contribute to the Circular Economy.
Just one pouch holds enough concentrated cleaning solution to fill many spray bottles once diluted, over and over again. For example, one case (6L) of concentrated SumaⓇ Bac D10 kitchen cleaner disinfectant equals 400 Ready-to-Use bottles, and so reduces the carbon footprint from 24.7 CO2 eq. down to 0.11.
This is a real game changer and provides an evident stride towards a cleaner and better world. Antoine Rocourt, Executive Director of Sustainable Development at Diversey, had some closing insights to share:
“For over 95 years, we’ve been developing and delivering innovative products, services, and technologies to revolutionize cleaning within a variety of sectors, whilst protecting the environment.
“We improved our packaging footprint by moving from RTU to concentrated products. Pouches with concentrated products are one of the most efficient propositions for kitchen cleaning & hygiene, building maintenance, and floor care. Spray bottles can be refilled over and over again, thus minimizing plastic waste, using simple, safe, closed, off-the-floor systems.
“Ensuring that the pouches are fully recyclable to new eco-standards and EU green packaging guidelines is a further step-up in our corporate ambition that all of our Core Packaging contributes to the Circular Economy.”
