Paper-based absorbent pads from Sirane, a sustainable packaging solution

THE Earthpad is a paper-based absorbent pad aimed at anyone wanting to go green - an absorbent pad which is both compostable and recyclable with the paper.

Many companies are looking for ways to make their packaging more sustainable – and there’s sustainable alternatives even for a functional element like absorbency.

Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “Sirane’s constantly evolving it’s products, and we realised there was a need in the market for a compostable & recyclable pad solution.

“Our Earthpad Resource has been well received in the market - and will be the first of many new developments in this area. Sirane’s always been a solutions company, and this is a long-term solution for a product that’s needed across the industry - the humble but vital absorbent pad - in a more eco-friendly format.”

Earthpad Resource absorbent pads are a cellulose absorbent layer, bonded to a paper-based top or bottom layer with a bio-polymer coating.

Earthpad Resource is available in any size, shape or configuration, including slit rolls. They are currently available in white, with a range of colours available soon. A range of absorbency grades are available - from 800cc/M2 up to 10,000cc/M2.

Earthpad Resource is available in single or double sided and is unique in its construction, made without the use of glues.

We can also offer Earthpad Resolve – which is a compostable pad made using bio-materials.

Sirane is an innovative food packaging development-to-manufacture company, with expertise in absorbency and material science. Specialisms include bags and pouches, absorbent products, shelf-life extension and dual-ovenable products.

We also recently acquired a UK-based board manufacturer and converter.

OUR trade show calendar for 2020 is starting to look very different – with many shows having been cancelled or postponed due to the Covid 19 pandemic.

CFIA – the popular food industry trade show in France which was originally scheduled for March – has now been moved to September… and moved to Nantes.

The show in Rennes was postponed in March due to the ongoing Coronavirus crisis – and was rescheduled for May 26-28 – but organisers GL Events have removed any uncertainty by moving the show – which Sirane will exhibit at – to the autumn.

CFIA is now scheduled to run at ExpoNantes – La Beaujoire Expo Park, from September 29 to October 1, 2020. New stand layouts are still to be confirmed.

Fruit Focus – one of the biggest dates and more popular gatherings in the UK fruit industry calendar – has been postponed as a result of the Covid 19 pandemic.

Fruit Focus is being rescheduled for 2021 – but organisers say they are hoping to host a virtual event later in the year. Watch this space for further information…

Plastic Free World Conference & Expo, due to be held in Cologne from June 16-17 was postponed in March and is now scheduled to take place from November 9-10. Sirane MD Simon Balderson is among the speakers, and our stand can be found at PF32.

We’re also at the inaugural US version in Atlanta from October 27-28.

Sirane East (Vostok) was due to exhibit at RosUpack in Moscow from June 8-11 – that show has been rearranged for August 25-28 at the same venue, the Crocus Expo.

We’re exhibiting at Packaging Innovations at Olympia, London, from September 23-24 – and as things stand that will be our next UK exhibition. Our stand is C2.

Sirane North America is exhibiting at Aneberries in Guadalajara (Mexico) from July 27-31, and at Expo Agroalimentaria Guanajuato from November 10-13. As it stands, both shows are unaffected by the Covid 19 pandemic and will take place on the dates planned.
