A pioneer of environmentally friendly production
In 2010 Körber became the first company in its sector to offer glue-free solutions for toilet rolls. This technology made it possible for tissue production to gradually use less and less glue, which is very difficult to biodegrade. At Körber the lamination between tissue plies can be done in a process that uses water. This technology, which is called Aquabond, has an additional advantage for manufacturers: It significantly reduces the amount of cleaning that is needed for the machines, because there is no glue residue to be removed. Today, Körber is the first company that developed a new solution to use water for lamination for kitchen towels, too.
Zino is especially proud of yet another environmentally friendly innovation, which he reveals by pulling out the core of a roll of toilet paper. In the traditional rolls, the core used to consist of a glued cardboard roll and lots of air. Now it consists of a small additional roll of tissue. “Consumers can take it with them when they’re on the go or stash it away at home as a reserve supply,” he explains. The Solid plus system that was developed and patented by Körber also reduces the CO2 connected to transportation: It increases the tissue product per roll by 16 percent while maintaining the same volume.
