Polenghi develops Europes first extrusion-blow-molded bottle

October 08/2010

(NatureWorks) -- Using a new Ingeo blend formulation, Polenghi LAS (Italy) has developed Europes first extrusion-blow-molded biobased bottle, Polenghi LAS and NatureWorks LLC reported.

By switching from polyolefin resin to bioplastic for packaging 10 million bottles its new juice, Polenghi will conserve 1,000 barrels of oil and reduce CO2 emissions by 126 tons compared to an equivalent oil-based plastic squeeze bottle.

Polenghis achievement demonstrates the first European commercial introduction of a low-environmental impact and renewably sourced bioplastic substitute for polyolefin resins in extrusion-blow-molding applications. This bioplastic also offers stable pricing compared to the volatility experienced in the petroleum market.


Polenghi is a family group involved in food and juices manufacturing with 4 facilities in Europe since 1976, exporting in 50 countries in the world.
