Nobody is perfect.
But K3® r100 is pretty close.
Doing the work for you: self-separation for outstanding recyclability
K3® r100 is a product innovation that has made the impossible possible: separating cardboard wraps and plastic packaging from one another during the waste disposal process without the need for human intervention. Unlike all previous K3® packaging solutions, an outstanding level of recyclability can be achieved without having to rely on end consumers to separate the items correctly. Instead, the cardboard separates from the plastic completely on its own during the waste disposal process.
Here’s how it works:
The cardboard wrap opens up all by itself during the waste disposal process.
The cardboard detaches from the plastic cup without the need for human intervention.
The materials can be disposed of separately and then recycled.
Sustainable and attractive
In developing K3® r100, Greiner Packaging was able to rely on years of experience in packaging design while breaking new ground in terms of innovation and sustainability. The cardboard wrap, which can be made from recycled material, lends sturdiness to the plastic cup so that it can be produced with particularly thin walls. In addition, the carbon footprint of K3® cups is significantly smaller than that of alternative packaging solutions. The diverse array of design options, the intuitive tear tab, and the printable inside of the cardboard wrap are guaranteed to provide ideal opportunities for communication with end consumers and differentiation at the point of sale.
