Summary

Summary: 
The Israeli company has developed innovative CNC (Cellulose Nano Crystals) based sustainable barrier coating solutions that protects from oxygen, oil and water vapor for the packaging industry. The barrier coating solutions serve as a sustainable alternative to aluminium and fossil oil-based materials. It seeks partners abroad for commercial agency with connection to packaging companies which are looking to incorporate sustainable barrier coatings in their packaging products.

Description

Description: 

This Israeli company was established back in 2010 and its staff includes 18 employees to date.
The company specializes in bio-based solutions that provide different industries with tools to improve performance while using sustainable materials that do not harm the environment.

As the world continues to seek more sustainable packaging solutions, Cellulose Nano Crystals (CNC) is emerging as on the most promising green alternatives.
The company is answering the need by developing unique sustainable barrier solutions for the packaging industry that are based on CNC and are environmentally friendly. The company’s barrier solutions serve as a sustainable alternative to aluminium and fossil oil-based materials.

The solution offers high performance oxygen, oil & grease, aroma and water vapor barrier coatings that fit almost any substrate and can be integrated into existing coating lines of converters, paper mills and packaging companies to achieve high barrier performance while increasing sustainable materials content.
Both the product – barrier coating and the production process were granted with patents.

The product can be suitable for companies such as specialty paper companies, packaging companies, converting companies, Retailers/ food/ other consumer products companies.
The company is collaborating with many Tier-1 global companies from the entire value chain of the packaging industry and with a co-operation in the food industry.

The company is looking for commercial agency agreement partners who have strong connections with packaging companies, converters, paper companies and/or food/consuming companies/ retailers that looking to incorporate sustainable barrier coatings in their packaging products.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
- Unique technology and product (patents granted for both production process and products). - Company’s patented production process for CNC is more sustainable than the process of main competitors. Company’s technology enables the recovery of chemicals used in the process and require low amounts of water and energy. - Company’s barrier coatings are based on CNC– which is renewable, expendable material, environmental-friendly. Made from a renewable source- the industrial forest. - Environmentally friendly solutions without compromising on performance. Company has invested a great deal in the accumulation of knowledge in the field of packaging and according to tests by the company and its partners – the performance of company's barrier coating products exceeds those currently on the market. - One of the key benefits of the company’s barrier coating products is their high durability and high barrier values under high humidity conditions (> 70%). - Company’s barrier coatings are competitive in terms of performance to existing oil-based barrier coating products that together control 50% of the high barrier films market and can therefore serve as a sustainable alternative. - The only true source of natural polymers that meets the following requirements: economically affordable, available in high amounts is the industrial forest, which is grown in well-controlled and sustainable conditions (FSC certified). Company’s barrier coatings are based on materials from the industrial forest which makes them highly attractive. -Simple integration– company’s barrier solutions can be applied on existing coating lines
