KIEFEL Receives the Innovation in Vacuum Busch Award
Machines for the production of sustainable packaging material
KIEFEL GmbH develops technologies that are improving sustainability of packaging products. The company has developed a machine, the NATUREFORMER KFT 90, with which recyclable and even compostable packaging can be produced from natural fibers, such as cellulose or straw. Busch Vacuum Solutions supplies the vacuum technology needed to draw the material into the mold. The two companies have been working closely together for more than twenty years.
Busch presents the Innovation in Vacuum Busch Award once a year. This award honors individuals or companies with particularly innovative applications for vacuum technology that benefit people and the environment. The Innovation in Vacuum Busch Award was first presented in 2013 to mark the 50th anniversary of Busch Vacuum Solutions.
Increased demand for more sustainable products and designs for a circular economy are being driven by legislation and customers alike. In addition to promoting recycling, this also includes the need to develop environmentally friendly packaging alternatives that are not made of plastics.
With its innovative technology, KIEFEL is helping drive this change and lower the environmental impact of its customers’ packaging.
