B-NAT Bio-based PE Polyolefin Shrink Film

Our ultra-thin shrink film on a base of green polyethylene.

For those who are keen to undertake an environmentally friendly approach to their packaging process, we are proud to say that we’re the first UK suppliers of the bio-based PE shrink film B-NAT®, which has been developed by Bollore. This ultra-thin film shrinks at the highest free shrink ratio of any film on the market for improved presentation and also seals and shrinks much faster and at considerably lower temperatures than any film currently available. This in itself has considerable environmental benefit as it delivers energy savings.

Green credentials

B-NAT® polyolefin plastic wrap is a major environmental breakthrough, not only for the shrink film industry but also for eco-packaging:

  • B-NAT® has a low impact on arable land, utilising only 0.02% of land for sugarcane production.

  • Cultivated over 1,200 miles away from any rainforest.

  • Based on a renewable resource that is ethically harvested.

  • Formulated from a product that would have otherwise gone to waste.

  • Has full OPRL approval to display clear and consistent recycling labels.

  • B-Nat® is available in a thickness of 15µm, flat or centrefolded.

  • Information on printed B-Nat® can be obtained on request.

Our B-NAT® film has been designed to cope with the ever-demanding applications of high-speed production and therefore is a perfect fit for our high-quality shrink wrapping machinery.

Our BRC-certified warehouse enables us to store full food-contact approved polyolefin shrink films (specifically created for those who require modified atmosphere packaging) for fast delivery alongside a convenient call-off order system.

Sugarcane derived

This specialist plant-based shrink film is ‘greener’ right from the resource stage through to manufacturing and beyond. B-NAT® film has a base that consists of more than 46% sugarcane ethanol. In sugar production, the sugarcane plant is subjected to five industrial squeezes. The first two squeezes produce pure sugar for human consumption and the following three squeezes produce a waste by-product that is unfit for consumption. It is this by-product, sugarcane ethanol, which is processed into the base of our B-NAT® shrink film. This ensures that the film has a minimal impact on the environment through a reduced dependency on finite fossil fuels, whilst being fully recyclable to level 4 LDPE, meaning it can be a legitimate part of any closed-loop supply chain model. All of the features and benefits you expect from petrochemical shrink films are still offered by B-NAT®.

Matteo Ferrari, The White Rabbit Pizza Co

"We’re always looking for ways to make our packaging more environmentally friendly. We use cardboard pizza discs instead of polystyrene and fully recyclable cardboard boxes, so the sugarcane plastic is totally in keeping with our ethos and mission to be greener. By switching to B-NAT, we've calculated that we will save roughly 18,700kg of CO2 emissions each year, which is equivalent to driving twice around the world. YPS carried out several expert trials to make sure the film was perfect for our pizzas and always deliver our orders next day to keep us running smoothly. We are really pleased with the results and the service."
