The product's eco-friendliness results in PVC- level functionality without PVC- level environmental footprint, the company states. ECOmply breaks down only under anaerobic condi- tions typically found in landfills.

The machine will replace manual collecting and packing of small products, according to the company.

When full, the company claims the tray moves to the delivery area, while a new tray moves into place without inter- rupting production. Machine options include fold-quality inspection and glue verification, and the company notes that a model for handling multiple-up small-leaflet production is available.
