A recycled PET egg tray will be on display by Kiefel Packaging at K 2019


Table of Contents

    The design demands were obvious: Uncompromised functionality and mechanical strength of the tray. Meticulous analysis and re-engineering of the material, tray and processing have led to a tray which is of similar or better quality to the ones available in virgin PS or PET.

    The use of Kiefel’s new premium flatbed tooling in combination with the trendsetting new generation flatbed KMD thermoformers significantly streamlined development.

    Design for recycling

    Kiefel’s Design for Recycling program systematically bundles the company’s expertise to rethink the customers’ products. Every detail of the product is re-assessed and rethought together with the customers. The customers are supported in all steps of their product development cycle: From material and product composition, up to the optimal requirements for their tools and thermoforming process.

    Next to a transition to 100% PCR material, Kiefel Packaging offers the expertise and support for more drastic material changes: For instance, a switch to paper, pulp, or plant-based materials like PHA or PEF.
