By converting the printing plates, Cardbox Packaging invested in the future of their production facilities and the environment. The plants meet the highest standards of ecological solution in the packaging industry.
Less consumption, saving material in process
The Cardbox Packaging Group has been working at the Wolfsberg (Austria) and Zádveřice (Czech Republic) sites with the latest generation of thermal printing plates (Agfa Elite ECO) from Agfa NV. The difference is mainly in the consumption of chemicals, water and energy.
The high print runs required, also in UV printing, can be achieved with just one set of plates, which also helps to save resources.
The differences in consumptions are significant. Due to this new alternative they are able to save on each of the related processing steps and all materials used are fed into the recycling process. From now on, over 800,000 liters of fresh water will be saved every year.
- Saving 86% of chemicals generally used during the process. Due to this fact, the waste has decreased by 39%;
- Using 94% less of water consumption;
- Labour needed has decreased by 80%.
