Zignago Vetro Choosed New Packaging Machinery | Valdamark Packaging

A Glass Packaging maker in Italy has chosen a new system from Messersi Packaging machinery.

Glass Bottling

The system adds both durability to the packaging whilst saving on cost.

In Italy Glass Packaging maker Ziganago Vetro has partnered with Messersi Packaging Machinery for production in two of it’s manufacturing plants.

Messersi Packaging has come up with a system that is able to produce small compact packaging in conjunction with laminated packaging film that adheres to glass bottle and protects from any harmful atmospheric conditions.

The system utilises a hood that ensures fast and effective shrinking that uses an Polythene heat sealer for safety, stability but also improves the aesthetic qualities of the package.

Zignago Vetro has chosen a design that is ideal when fitted to glass products. As well there is a construction that includes a square device and a horizontal strapping machines which stabilises each layer of the glass bottle.

The shrink wrapping machine used has four sections and a top cover to make the package durable when travelling through the supply chain.

There is also the additional benefit of energy saving during packaging production. It is far less intensive with the Messersi system.

The machinery is planned to be installed next month at production sites in Norther Italy.

Partnership Based on Sustainability

Aliplast and Zignago Vetro are working together to drive ecological advancement throughout the entire Italian glass packaging market.

Every year, Herambiente provides 852 tons of recovered materials to be used for intelligent regenerated polymers, flexible films, and sheets.

The collaborative agreements between both companies have resulted in the development of an advanced, innovative business model that enables prudent resource management while reducing environmentally-harmful landfill waste.

“Reload” Product Success Story

The success of Aliplast and Zignago Vetro's “Reload” product demonstrates the power of partnerships between innovative companies. Working together, they find opportunities in unexpected sources, while also helping the environment.

These two companies are reducing their consumption of resources and their emission of plastic waste to landfills. Every month, Aliplast provides Zignago Vetro with packaging for bottles and jars that are used as a middle layer in production.

Not only is this protective film made from recycled materials for a reduced environmental footprint. But part of the plastic waste from other production processes is included in it too.

These packages then get discarded once the bottles arrive at bottling plants before being sold, thereby closing an efficient recycling loop. Through such creative and smart strategies, Aliplast and Zignago Vetro prove what can be done when people come together to fight against climate change.

Overall, their success story serves as an inspiration to others who are looking to make similar green transitions in their business models. Doing so not only helps protect our planet but has great potential for economic growth as well.

The success story coined by these two companies is truly commendable! Not only have they played an instrumental role in reducing plastic waste but could also help everyone become better stewards of our environment for generations to come.

Role of Herambiente

Herambiente is playing a crucial role in the recovery and treatment of special waste for Zignago Vetro Empoli. HASI, Herambiente's subsidiary, handled approximately 1000 tons of waste between 2021 and early 2022, with 40% of this being classified as special hazardous waste.

This waste is collected and then transported to a fractionation plant where it is divided into categories according to the type of packaging material used. From here, the material is further sorted into two main categories: mixed packaging and HDPE packaging.

Mixed materials are selected before being sent out to be recovered, while HDPE packaging is washed and ground to collect secondary raw materials. The end product of this process is then shipped off to companies that can use them for manufacturing new products.

By providing efficient services for the safe disposal of hazardous waste as well as recycled materials for reuse, Herambiente has become an integral part of Zignago Vetro’s sustainability journey.

Sustainability is Part of the Company's DNA

Zignago Vetro and Sinergreen are two companies known for their sustainability in the glass production sector.

Both companies have a corporate commitment to sustainability, meaning that every aspect of their processes prioritises sustainability. This includes utilising recycled materials, renewable resources, and self-contained recyclable furnaces with fewer emissions.

Zignago Vetro and Sinergreen's ambitious environmental strategy is a model for other companies looking to reduce their ecological footprint.

Life Cycle Assessment: Data, Not Just Words

Zignago Vetro, a manufacturer of building materials, has taken steps to reduce its carbon footprint with the help of its partners Aliplast and Hasi.

Through the LCA method, Zignago Vetro assesses the whole supply chain from regeneration to end of life to gather data about their products' environmental footprints.

Additionally, by using Aliplast products, which are the result of recycling processes, Zignago Vetro can save 1.431.360 kg of Co2 each year, thus reducing their overall carbon footprint and setting an example for other companies striving to become more eco-friendly.
