Strawbased packaging solutions

EdgePak Straw is a solution that provides stacking strength and easy handling at a low carbon footprint. Foldable Corners made from strawboard – creates a strong moisture resistant construction +4 ton stacking.

Why is Strawboard strong?

Nefab EdgePak Straw evolved out of our duty corrugated solution. We wanted to develop a quick-and-easy solution with lower cost and increased stacking strength. The compact, wet mechanical process makes straw pulp more resistant to moisture than paper. The straw fibers are short (not flexible) but very stiff compared to wood fiber, when combining the layers it gives the material great strength.

Why is Strawboard strong?

Award winning application for Lithium-Ion Batteries

Background

Nefab was contacted by a company with the goal of improving their supply chain. Their customer, the 4th largest car manufacturer, requested them to eliminate the expendable Expanded Polypropylene (EPP) trays currently used to transport battery modules from China to Europe. The EPP tray’s recycling cost and environmental impact were both unacceptable to them.

Our Solution

As a solution to the request, our engineers in China developed a design almost entirely made of paper. The new solution was based on EdgePak Straw, corrugated and paper pulp fitments.
The EdgePak Straw design provides enough strength to pass the UN certification and allowed 1+3 stacking with over 350 kg per box. The packaging solution is UN certified to meet the demands for transporting LiBs.
