Our customer was looking to decrease costs associated with packaging, and transition away from PVC bags. We used our materials engineering specialty knowledge to set up a process that incorporated our customer’s recycled scrap paper into molded pulp packaging. After extensive design engineering, simulation, and analysis, we were able to drastically reduce our customer’s waste disposal expenses, transportation costs, and ecological footprint. This environmentally conscience packaging solution is currently being used for finished goods that are supplied to Walmart stores nationwide. This project was nominated, and a finalist, for a NorTech Innovation Award.
