Investments in Schkopau: The successful sheet segment will soon have more space to grow. Here at Fernholz, we have been extruding PS, PP, PET and multilayer sheets as well as decorated or printed PS sheets at our sites in Meinerzhagen and Schkopau for many years.
We place a particular focus on the production of cups based on renewable raw materials. To this end, we joined with three industry partners to launch a feasibility study along the plastics value chain for organic-based polypropylene (PP).
We need to reduce packaging to the bare minimum if we want to conserve resources and protect the environment. This fact is undisputed. But it is at least equally important to include current packaging in the recycling loop.
Desto®-Cup has been a registered trademark of Fernholz in the Federal Republic of Germany since 20 June 2022. Our Desto®-Cup has established a strong market presence since then, with more than 12.5 million units sold in 2022 – and counting.
Over time, we will double capacity at the Schkopau site and invest in new systems. After completing preparations in 2020 and 2021, we will push ahead with construction in 2022 and also install the first new systems and machinery.
It is obvious that we must all reduce the amount of packaging we use to protect the environment and save resources. But it is at least equally as important to ensure that existing packaging is safely recycled and does not end up in landfill or the environment.
