As wood-based bioplastic bins for industrial use, BiOX bins allow users to make an environmentally conscious storage choice and significantly reduce their use of non-renewable resources and their carbon footprint. The carbon-neutral material of the bins is over 90% wood-based renewable material, residue from pulp production process, and cellulose fibers from sustainably managed forests; the quality remains the same as with traditional plastic bins.
The material for the bins comes from UPM, a global forest industry company. The material for the transparent label shields and cross-dividers comes from the Finnish start-up Woodly. For both companies, the joint development work with Treston marks a first in creating wood-based bioplastic products for industrial use.
