Ecolean Filling machines EL1 and EL2+
The Ecolean concept is to use a minimal amount of raw materials to produce a unique flexible lightweight package and a filling system for liquid food products. The production of filling machines and manufacturing of packaging material takes place in Helsingborg, and the plants in Sweden and China converts the packaging material film into a range of hermetically sealed ready-to-fill packages in a variety of different sizes.
This EPD covers the two Ecolean filling machines for chilled distribution, the EL1 and the EL2+. The EL1 machine is used for filling family-sized Ecolean® Air packages 500 ml, 1000ml and 1500ml, and the EL2+ filling machine is used for smaller portion-sized Ecolean® Air packages from 200ml up to 450ml.
The scope for the EPD is cradle to grave and covers four different geographic markets (Europe, Russia, Pakistan and China).
