INNOVATION IN RECYCLING AND
BIODEGRADABLE PLASTICS

Coperion test lab in Stuttgart, Germany

Coperion enabled an African blown film manufacturer, Asahel Benin Sarl., to produce sustainable, bio-based plastic films by delivering a complete compounding system and sharing process-engineering expertise. Before plastic bags and packaging were banned in Benin, this west African manufacturer made plastic film using polyethylene (PE). New laws forced the company to convert its production and, following a successful test and training phase at Coperion’s Stuttgart, Germany test lab, Asahel Benin Sarl. will be able to produce biodegradable compounds for bags and packaging materials with the help of Coperion’s ZSK twin screw extruder.
