Koppert Biological Systems is dedicated to Sustainability, not only Sustainable crop protection, but Sustainable processes and packaging. After many trials, Koppert has switched from Styrofoam to an Eco-friendly alternative for shipping. Upon receiving, you will now see a cardboard box with two types of insulation materials; this will enable us to transport our most temperature sensitive organisms and maintain the highest possible quality, all while working toward our Sustainability initiatives.
Box Type A: fully recyclable*
Box Type B: fully recyclable*
Box Type A insulation: fully recyclable*
Box Type B insulation: biodegradable (regular waste)*
*Please always check with your local guidelines for waste management.
• Easier to recycle • Renewable raw materials • Improved 'breathability' for insects • Better moisture regulation (less condensation/better absorption and evaporation) • Space saving for storage (easy to flatten and stack) • Less volume to dispose
Koppert is consistently striving to not only improve our products, but also the way that we operate. These fully recyclable boxes join a list of environmentally conscious improvements that Koppert has utilized to decrease its carbon footprint. This list consists of Spical Ulti-Mite and Swirski Ulti-Mite sachets that are entirely compostable. These new sachets are made of a newly-developed foil that meets the required industrial composting standards. The sachets can therefore be disposed of together with the crop waste when it is taken to a composting plant. Koppert also uses recycled material from automobile manufacturing plants that Koppert uses to produce its bumblebee hive liners. By incorporating these, we continue and will continue to find solutions to contribute to the better health of people and the planet.
