NUREMBERG, GERMANY | Nordenia has been awarded the German Packaging Award for its Nor®Cell film. At the recent award ceremony, the company was honored for the
successful implementation of a concept to produce innovative foamed films.
The German Packaging Institute said Nordenia was the first company to successfully implement the Nor®Cell technology in flexible packaging. "We are very pleased to receive an award for this innovative approach,” says Dr. Herbert Bader, research and development manager of the Nordenia Group, who accepted the prize together with Nor®Cell project manager Matthias Perick. "This is a clear sign that we should focus more intensively on technologies that make the manufacture of intelligent, sustainable films possible.”
By using a physical, controlled foaming process, the Nor®Cell technology is said to reduce the weight of flexible packaging significantly without decreasing the film thickness. Suitable applications include the food, pet food, and hygiene sectors. The foaming process takes place according to a process patented by the Mucell company.
