Grass, hemp and other natural materials are ideally suited as raw materials due to their consistent growth. They can be harvested several times a year and do not compete with food crops.
At the same time, natural raw material has a great environmental balance. When hemp grows, for example, vast amounts of CO₂ are absorbed – more than is produced during cultivation and harvesting. Hemp plants are also naturally resistant to pests and suppress weeds. Chemical fertilizers and pesticides can therefore usually be dispensed with. Grass as a natural raw material also comes from agriculturally unused meadows, which on the one hand provides an urgently needed habitat for bees and other insects, but also has a positive effect on the environmental balance. Chemical additives can be dispensed with. In addition, grass hardly requires any additional water or energy during growth.
The minimal use of polymeric binding fibers thus results in sustainable insulating panels with a superior environmental balance.
The raw materials hemp and grass are CO₂ neutral. As the plant grows, more CO₂ is absorbed than is emitted for its cultivation and harvest. Moreover, hardly any additional water, energy or chemical additives are needed to produce the sustainable raw material. The rapidly regrowing natural fibers can be harvested several times a year. This creates sustainable packaging solutions with a minimal carbon footprint.
Used and no longer needed natural fiber panels of the THERMOCON Nature boxes can be returned 100% to the production process. Thus, new thermoboxes are created and the cycle is closed #closetheloop. Alternatively, used panels can be disposed of in an ecologically sound manner and without any problems via household and commercial waste.
The natural fiber boxes are tested under realistic conditions for the deep-freeze range with dry ice and cold range with gel packs.
You will receive the pre-tested complete systems, designed for 24 or up to 48 hours running time.
We are also happy to design the complete systems according to your individual needs. With your products, your runtimes, your requirements. Designed by our engineers, tested in our climate chambers. Contact us..
The THERMOCON Nature thermoboxes are approved for direct food contact.
The thermoboxes also consist of renewable raw materials and a minimal amount of binding fibers – in this way, film wrappings, which cannot be processed by industrial composting, can be dispensed with.
Natural fibers have a natural moisture regulation and protect sensitive food during demanding refrigerated transport.
