Technomelt Supra ECO

According to Henkel, the carbon footprint of any standard polyolefin hot melt adhesive amounts to circa 328 tons of CO2 per annum. With an average consumption of 100 tones of adhesives per year, this equates to 71 ICE (Internal combustion engine) cars driven for a full year.

Technomelt Supra ECO is the first carbon-negative hot melt adhesives that allow the saving of 372 tons of CO2 per year, the equivalent of the carbon captured by 6100 tree seedlings grown for 10 years!

This unique product is the first of its kind across the world, offering a sustainable solution for the packaging industry and leading the way towards a more circular economy.
