Environmental footprint reduction is a key part of our production process.

We get ahead of all the latest trends and go further, by influencing packaging consumption habits and inspiring businesses, consumers and decision makers regarding sustainability issues.

Tilton, environmentally-friendly manufacturing facilities!

Tilton’s daily priorities include: using materials that have a reduced environmental footprint, the use of renewable energy, minimizing water consumption and preservation of the natural environment.

Tilton products are made from materials that are 100% recycled or certified compostable. Production waste and offcuts are reintroduced into the production system.

Tilton’s current continuous improvement process includes implementation of a recovery and composting system.

Tilton’s manufacturing equipment is powered by 100% renewable energy, particularly hydro-electricity. Our factories are also equipped with high-performance energy networks which include heat recovery and free cooling systems. Water used in these processes circulates in a closed system, which thus does not bring in new natural water or discharge refuse into the environment.

Our environmental and social values can be seen in the importance we attach to the choice of the sites where our factories are located. Key criteria we draw on when making these choices include existing fauna and flora in the locale and the quality of life of our workers.

“ We are convinced that we are part of the solution.”

Biogo® is the natural choice for fresh foods. Better for the planet and even better for your family and business.

PLANTS

Resources 100% renewable annually

RECYCLING

Several options at the end of the lifecycle

SCIENCE

The plant sugars are processed into biopolymer NGOs

PRODUCTION

Biogo products are made from natural plastic

ENVIRONNEMENT

Uses less combustible energy

CLIMATE

Reduces greenhouse gas emissions

Our Biogo® containers are 100% compostable.

The Repost line, which is made from 100% recycled plastic, was developed through the post-consumption principle. It offers consumers a brand image based on the 3R principle (Reuse-Revalue-Reduce).

Green terminology

Biodegradable plastic

Subject to anaerobic or aerobic biological decomposition through the actions of microorganisms (bacteria, fungi and algae) under natural conditions.

Compostable plastic

Is degradable during composting through biological processes, during which it produces levels of CO2, water, inorganic compounds and biomass that are comparable with levels produced by other composted materials under commercial or industrial conditions, and which leave no visible, recognizable or toxic residue. Compostable plastics must comply with ASTM-D6400.

Oxo-degradation

A multi-stage process through which a chemical additive initiates the material degradation, a process which is accelerated by sunlight, heat and / or mechanical stress, and the residues of which may disappear through biodegradation after a certain time.
