Produce Biodegradable Products

Produce Biodegradable products that meet the high quality requirements in the packaging industry.


Biodegradable plastics are in great demand

Films and nonwovens that decompose in the environment given the right conditions are in great demand in the packaging and agricultural industries. Harness this trend with our technologies and product solutions.

Hard packaging made from PLA

PLA film form an excellent oxygen and aroma barrier for biodegradable food packaging. They can be produced on the same line in addition to PET film.


Yogurt pots
Drink cups, coffee cups
Cup lids for hot and cold drinks
Coffee capsules


Transparent (not heat-resistant)
Heat-resistant (hot drinks) C-PLA


Recover almost pure polyolefines by recycling
BVOH offers a barrier effect up to three times more efficient than EVOH
Lower content of other polymers well below 5%

Separating layers in recycling

The water-soluble barrier layer is flushed out in the recycling process. The residue is then almost pure polyolefines.


Option 1: Barrier thermoforming film line


REIcofeed PRO feedblock with edge encapsulation (7 to 11 layers)

Show Coextrusion feedblocks

The Reifenhäuser barrier thermoforming film line can also run with composites based on PP or biobased PP – while retaining the same biological water-soluble barrier layer. Almost pure polyolefines remain after recycling.

Option 2: Value:PET line

The alternative Value:PET line configuration for 100 kg/h comes with an attractive price/performance ratio.
