Greif Recognized for Sustainability

GreifIndustrial packaging product manufacturer Greif has been recognized with the 2014 Manufacturing Leadership Award (ML Award) in Sustainability for its DoubleGreen COEX 10-liter plastic jerry can.

The company said the product is one of the first sustainable multilayer 10-liter plastic jerry cans made from a renewable resource, sugarcane, with a stackable design that eliminates the need for a carton during transport.

The DoubleGreen COEX 10-liter plastic jerry can incorporates polyethylene that is derived from sugarcane ethanol and exceeds 50 percent of the total packaging composition. Based upon the main Brazil agrochemical market volume, the use of sugarcane ethanol is estimated to eliminate CO2 emissions by 1,390 tons annually.

Greif said its manufacturing process requires less material in the production of the jerry can, reducing its weight for shipping even as it maintains the same compression strength as heavier containers. Its stackable design for shipping directly on transport pallets improve inventory management cost, remove the necessity for printing a duplicate label and optimizes the recycling process. The elimination of carton packaging is estimated to save 3,643 trees and avoid 23 tons of excess CO2 emissions, according to the company.
