ASTERIA SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS, A NEW WAY OF THINKING

The global waste issue is real. The unsustainable linear use of materials drives climate change. A changed mindset is needed to take action and keep investing in product innovation that drives sustainability. Welcome to our world of Asteria Sustainable Solutions.

From beauty over health care to food and beverages, today, any industry is driven by innovation, especially when it comes to sustainability. While developing new sustainable solutions to meet your label and packaging goals, we keep your industry in mind. Today, we are proud to offer a sustainable alternative to 90% of the traditional products, also for your industry!

SUSTAINABLE ALTERNATIVES FOR 90% OF TRADITIONAL PRODUCTS

A WIDE RANGE OF SOLUTIONS TO REACH YOUR ESG GOALS

Asteria Sustainable Solutions can be categorized into 4 main groups, each with their characteristics and qualities but all with the same goal: decrease your carbon footprint.

Asteria LESS products reduce your environmental impact. Less is more!

By adopting new printing techniques and lean manufacturing principles, we minimise waste generation and optimise resource usage. For example, for Asteria LESS products, we limit the use of virgin raw materials by using thinner raw materials.

The use of thinner raw materials has many advantages. Logically, fewer raw material is needed. This results in 16% more labels per roll, 13% fewer roll changes, and up to 25% less waste. Moreover, these materials take up less space, thus saving on storage and transport. By using thinner raw materials production is more productive, cost-effective, and sustainable than when using conventional raw materials. Don’t worry, these materials are of equal quality to your usual standard materials.

Asteria LOOP products make your packaging durable and reusable. Loop more!

Our focus on reusability not only reduces waste but also aligns with consumer demands for eco-friendly options. Asteria LOOP products actively promote the circular economy by allowing customers to return used packaging for refilling or repurposing. For example, our cold wash-off labels are easily removable to make reuse easy.

Asteria LOVE products use recycled or alternative bio-based materials. Love is all we need!

Asteria LOVE are products made from recycled sources (in whole or in part). In particular, we offer RPE (made from 30% recycled PE), RPP (made from recycled PP waste), and RMC (made from recycled paper waste).

Additionally, materials manufactured from (wholly or partly) alternative sources, such as sugar cane or grass, can be an option. Daily, we have bio-based PE, made from sugar cane ethanol instead of fossil raw materials, and bio-based PP, made from non-fossil raw materials, such as vegetable oils in stock.

Woodbased is made of tall oil which is a residu of the pulp making proces. Tall oil used to be waste.

Asteria LIFE is our line of biodegradable products. Enjoy the circle of life!

We can offer raw materials that are fully biodegradable or compostable. By using Asteria LIFE packaging materials, you offer the end consumer an extra service, untapping a completely new audience. Recycling is no longer necessary, these materials break down by themselves. A beautiful example is our biodegradable coffee cup.

TAP INTO THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY

Growing product and packaging waste streams paired with tightening sustainability regulation and sustainable consumer trends equal a concrete need for circular solutions.

For brands, the label release liner (the silicone-coated base substrate (paper or film), from which the label is peeled away during the dispensing process) is an often-overlooked waste stream. Put in proper circular use, it has the potential to be turned into a concrete positive impact on both the environment and business.

We work with the original label waste recycling service, RafCycle, to help tap into the circular economy for more sustainable business.

How does it work?

  1. Asteria sets up the relation between customer and external recycling partner. 
  2. Our external partner transforms liner waste into either new label materials, paper or PET products, or other innovative circular solutions.
