On behalf of Profol GmbH, ClimatePartner has conducted a cradle-to-customer CO2 comparative calculation of Profol polypropylene-based peelable lidding and traditional aluminum foil peelable lidding. Current dairy product cups, such as yogurt or cream cheese, are typically made of polypropylene. The peelable lidding generally used on these cups is aluminum foil. Profol has developed a polypropylene-based peelable lid to replace foil as part of their CPPeel® family of lidding solutions.
Profol GmbH is the winner of the German Sustainability Award 2020 for this CPPeel film solution, and a leader in the production of high-quality cast polyolefin films. ClimatePartner is a leading solutions provider for corporate climate protection.
We are pleased to provide the results of the study shown in the table below. Profol polypropylene lidding lowers CO2 emissions by 76% versus aluminum foil lids.
