High-quality wide film and wrapping film is crucial to ensure the best conservation of hay, as well as an efficient wrapping operation. In line with the latest market demands, Orkel presents its latest product: recycled film.
Together with the acknowledged packaging company ASPLA, Orkel is offering a wrapping film made of 35% recycled plastic. A product that better utilizes the world’s resources while not limiting the product’s capabilities.
Furthermore, ASPLA is currently the only manufacturer having the ISCC international certificate for silage wrap, being their recycled wrap. They are certified by ISCC, a multi-stakeholder initiative working towards a more sustainable world, such as securing protection of soil, water and air, while measuring and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
After completing extensive testing, the film appears to offer a matched film quality as our previous wrapping films.
Mr. Håkon Røed, Engineer of The Livestock Production Research Centre in Norway, took part in baling and nutrition tests of the film, and confidently expresses that he is optimistic to the recycled wrap. In addition to the assured quality, the wrap introduces added selection: “There are apparent benefits in providing different types of high-quality film, depending on the values of the customer (or researcher, in our case!)” We couldn’t agree more regarding it being a significant addition to the baling industry, especially due to the looming tax additions from the EU, which this product avoids.
“As recycled wrap is manufactured in 7 layers, it has a high resistance to dynamic impact and to tearing, minimizing the risk of film perforation and allowing the bales of fodder to be wrapped and transported with excellent resistance guarantees”, according to ASPLA.
Some advantages of the recycled film include
- Premium 7-layer silage wrap for all applications
- Enhanced oxygen barrier for better fermentation and preservation
- UV protected for all climates to keep bales secure
- Requires less film per bale compared to other brands, due to excellent film quality and 7-layer technology specifications
- Part of an innovative recycling process assuring optimal product capabilities
- 100% recyclable
Additionally, the film takes part in the bigger environmental picture
- Reinforces circular economy
- Reduces the carbon footprint
- Reuses the world’s resources
