- Fameccanica (Angelini industries), pioneer in industrializing the production of fully sustainable packaging for single-use detergents

This is how Greenpackt was born, the new integrated and patented system that uses 100% recyclable materials, making the packaging industry increasingly ecological, and a technology that would have a potential impact on the environment equivalent to the amount of oxygen produced by 4 million saplings planted each. year, or the annual energy needs of almost 70,000 Italian families.

SAN GIOVANNI TEATINO, Italy, Dec. 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Fameccanica, an international group specialized in Factory Automation, leader in the sector of disposable hygiene products, with more than 700 employees, three operating offices in Italy, China and North America , with a turnover of more than 200 million euros, launches the Greenpackt project, which combines technology and the environment, seeking to make the packaging industry 100% sustainable.

Since June 2022, Fameccanica has been 100% owned by Angelini Industries, an industrial group that employs around 5,800 employees and operates in 21 countries around the world, with a turnover of €1.7 billion, generated in the healthcare, consumption, industrial technology, perfumery and dermocosmetics and wine sectors.

Thanks to a dedicated team of highly specialized mechatronics engineers, Fameccanica created the Greenpackt project after two years of hard work. The project industrializes and automates the production of sustainable containers for single-dose detergents, also working on machines and containers.

Fameccanica has designed two machines for the launch of Greenpackt:

Both containers have compact dimensions, provide excellent protection against moisture and feature a "child-proof" opening system, with a secure closing mechanism that complies with the Aise standard.

"Today with Greenpackt we position ourselves as pioneers by proposing a patented system, an integrated machine-product solution, involving the entire supply chain, from the selection of raw materials to their processing – said Alessandro Bulfon, CEO of Fameccanica - Greenpackt opens a door to the future of a strategic market, still unmanned, that offers more ecological, ethical and sustainable opportunities Thanks to our technological know-how we have been able to respond to an important market demand, as confirmed by the negotiations, already underway with the main Italian and international players".

Fameccanica has set itself the objective of responding to the important demands of consumers to be able to use sustainable packaging and, with Greenpackt, has developed a solution based on a simple and green material -such as recycled cardboard- that has functions similar to those of traditional counterpart containers, but with a very low ecological impact.

In fact, while for a traditional PP container (containing 15 single doses of 57g weight) a carbon footprint of 178.6gCO2eq is estimated, for a Greenpackt container (containing 20 single doses of 58.7g weight) the footprint of carbon remains at 83.4gCO2eq, 53% less. This means that replacing each new packaging traditionally produced by one from the Greenpackt project would generate an amount of oxygen equivalent to that of 4 million saplings planted each year, or the annual energy needs of almost 70,000 Italian families.

The decision to use recyclable or biodegradable materials for Greenpackt stems from the desire to make an effective contribution to the fight against plastic pollution: currently, only 9% of the plastic produced globally is recycled ( Source OECD), while at least 22% pollute the land and marine environments by polluting their resources, and up to 12 million tons of plastic are dumped into the sea each year (Source Single-dose containers have an annual impact of 416 million units (31,200 tons) and an environmental impact of about 97,000 tons of CO2 equivalent.
