The Degralia Alliance is a close cooperation between Powerpack NV (Belgium) and Poligroup Ltd (Bulgaria).
We want to introduce new environmentally friendly technology and applications for the packaging market in Europe.
Manufacturing with classic compostable materials (e.g PLA) is already integrated for some time in the world of packaging. The importance of compostable materials is increasing. The new EU directive for light weight carrier bags will encourage some countries to stimulate the use of biodegradable/compostable materials.
The “big” price difference with fossil based PE is still an important barrier to switch to biobased, biodegradable resin.
Powerpack, with its R&D capabilities on biomaterials, will be able to close the existing price gap, step by step.
The Degralia Alliance becomes the first in Europe with fully integrated production facilities (production of bioresin, extrusion and converting).
We think we need to find a way to co-exist business, society and nature. It’s time to rethink the business purpose and strategy, the processes and technologies, the markets and audiences.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) becomes the heart of business, all over the world. Sustainability is not only about the environment, it’s about creating a more lasting and fairer world. A world where we can work and play, laugh and smile.
The Degralia Alliance offers benefits to the people, the planet and a feasible profit/prosperity.
The world of today is about taking away the natural resources, and leaving a toxic mess in its place. It’s time to adapt, or suffer the consequences. We need to think about what really creates value in the world today. Business is not a machine, it’s a dynamic system – ‘It lives, adapts and grows’.
A strong focus on R&D for new biobased resins, combined with fully integrated production facilities will make us able to make access to biobased applications more easy.
Our mission statement is “a small step for you, a giant leap for nature”.
