Biopack Significantly Increases Manufacturing Efficiency
HONG KONG–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Biopack Environmental Solutions Inc. (OTCBB:BPAC.ob – News), a designer, manufacturer, and supplier of 100% biodegradable and compostable packaging products, is pleased to announce the Jiangmen “Roots Biopark” factory has modified one of its current production machines to achieve significant efficiency increases.
Current machines at the Roots Biopark in China operate on a three step process – a formation step and two heat pressing steps. They operate 5 machines per line. The newly modified machine has eliminated one of the heat press steps. It also features an automatic stacker at the end of the process. The results are significant efficiency increases by:
- Reducing the total cycle time from approximately 60 seconds to 42 seconds, which allows for increased daily production and energy savings
- It saves approximately 45kg of fuel and 115 Joule’s of electricity per day over the current machines
- Requires only one brass mold rather than two, which decreases costs to clients, who pay for the molds
- It requires fewer workers, as previous stacking was done manually.
“The newly modified machine at the Biopark allows for significant increases in efficiency and corresponding cost savings” says Gerald Lau, CEO of Biopack. He continues “the design and changes were made in house and we hope to modify the other machines over time. All other machines produced in the future would also be more efficient, as we strive to enhance and develop our technology, to save both production costs and also be more environmentally friendly”.
Biopack manufactures 100% biodegradable consumer packaging products from locally available sugar cane waste called Bagasse. Based in Hong Kong with manufacturing facilities in Jiangmen, China, Biopack has earned the “premium brand” label in the biodegradable packaging market in Europe. Distributed under the “Roots Biopack” trademark, Biopack’s unique line of compostable packaging is sold in 12 European countries, North America, Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Africa.
