Our partners launch “world’s first” products, raise their sustainability profile, and communicate to customers and governments that they’re working on plastic problems.

Cake

Kalk AP

Biocomposite:

Trifilon Revo

Sustainability Improvement:

92% C02 reduction

Key performance metrics:

  • Extreme UV resistance
  • High impact properties
  • High fiber visibility
Cake

The Swedish company CAKE, which makes popular designer electric motorbikes, took on a project to equip field rangers in anti-poaching efforts in the African bush. They designed the high-performance Kalk AP to help rangers cover ground quietly – the electric motor emits little sound.

As the anti-poaching efforts have a spirit of conservation, CAKE designed its bike with sustainability in mind equipping it with solar panels for recharging on expeditions in wild terrain.

And the bike needed a lightweight, strong material for its plastic components. CAKE worked with Trifilon to develop a custom Revo grade that fills out the bike’s eco-profile.

Lyft

Green Can

Biocomposite:

Trifilon BioLite

Sustainability Improvement:

33% less plastic

Key performance metrics:

  • Optimized elongation
    and flex
  • Food contact compliant

Lyft, which produces a no-nicotine snuff or snus, wanted to begin working with sustainable packaging materials. Their highly-designed canister required a unique, high-performance biocomposite from Trifilon. That material forms the mechanically demanding product just as well as the original plastic recipe. But the new canisters, colored green, improve sustainability metrics, like the CO2 footprint, dramatically.

The plant fibers in the biocomposite even give the canisters a desirable haptic characteristic,
a warmer and more natural feeling.

And the canisters are still recyclable in regular plastic streams. Lyft sees this material as just the first step in a journey toward more sustainable packaging.

Grimsholm Green

Signal Cable Bio-Spike

Biocomposite:

Trifilon Switch

Sustainability Improvement:

Industrial Compostable and High Bio-Content

Key performance metrics:

  • Compostable over time
  • No heavy metals / toxic
  • Vegan friendly + No GMO feedstocks

With a clear focus on long-term growth, Grimsholm realized that sustainability was an essential point for its Swedish and European customers.

Through a tight collaboration with Trifilon and its local injection molding partner, Grimsholm was able to move production back to Sweden and even lower its logistics C02 footprint.

The new bio-spike is made from Trifilon Switch, an innovative thermoplastic biocomposite made from renewable, non-GMO plant-based feedstocks that incorporates C02 sequestering hemp fibers sourced from eco-friendly EU farms.

Very Good & Proper

Latte Chair

Biocomposite:

Trifilon Revo

Sustainability Improvement:

87% C02 reduction

Key performance metrics:

  • Excellent UV resistance
  • Unique fiber visibility
  • High recycled content

When the British furniture designers at Very Good & Proper (VG&P) were looking to make their debut outdoor collection, the company’s commitment to using sustainable materials was front and center. Named after the French word for the slats defining its design, the ‘Latte’ garden chair is a sustainable chair uniquely characterized by Trifilon’s specially engineered biocomposite material.

By incorporating Trifilon Revo, the ‘Latte’ chair’s CO2 footprint was drastically reduced and no new plastic was produced to create this outdoor chair.

In addition, the plants used to produce the hemp fiber capture carbon from the air as they grow, which further reduces the chair’s C02 footprint.

EPIC

Phantom
BIO suitcase

Biocomposite:

Trifilon BioLite

Sustainability Improvement:

31% C02 reduction

Key performance metrics:

  • High impact properties
  • Minimal VOC and natural fiber odor
  • No moisture absorption

Gothenburg-based EPIC Travelgear knew eco-minded customers wanted a green choice when buying luggage. EPIC and Trifilon partnered to develop a high-impact biocomposite that delivers top performance for busy travelers. The PhantomBIO, the first biocomposite luggage in the world, was given a big thumbs up by the luggage market, gaining the most pre-orders EPIC has ever experienced.

By incorporating Trifilon’s BioLite into their PhantomBIO shell, EPIC was able to reduce each bags C02 footprint by 31%

Seeing a big response from customers EPIC now sees eco-material luggage as an expanding market.
