Environmental Void Fill and Cushion Packaging

Eco Flo FAQs

EcoFlo may be 100% biodegradable, but does it perform as well?

Yes, if not better! Independent tests by Brunel University and the University of Humberside show that EcoFlo prevents product migration and provides better impact protection than polystyrene.


EcoFlo is made from starch. What difference does that make?

EcoFlo is biodegradable and conforms to EN13432, making it suitable for domestic or municipal compost. It will dissolve in water which eliminates the problem of littering. Starch is an annually renewable resource, not a depleting resource like petro-chemical based polystyrene.


Is the production process environmental?

Yes! We use a low energy, single stage production process, compared to the multi stage, high energy process used for producing polystyrene. EcoFlo uses steam instead of pentane gas as the blowing agent.


How will my customers and I be affected by the Waste Packaging Legislation?

Compared to polystyrene you and your customers will have a lower recycling and recovery obligation and reduced costs.


Does ECO FLO attract rodents?

No, there is little or nothing of value in either product to be attractive to rodents. If rodents are already on the premises, they have been known to nest in all loosefill products including polystyrene. The presence of GreenFill and ECO FLO will not encourage rodents into the warehouse.
