PolyOne shifts to eco-friendly packaging containers
PolyOne Corporation will transition to the PlanetPak packaging system as the standard container for colour and additive concentrates in North America.
The PlanetPak container replaces traditional fibre drums, which will still be available for an additional fee.
The patent-pending system consists of a corrugated package constructed of recycled materials, and a customised wooden pallet, which elevates the container for easy access during moving or shipping and can be moved with a conventional forklift. Since the package contains no metal bands or supports, it can be easily recycled, and folds flat to minimise storage space.
