Nominated for German Sustainability Award 2022

12 Aug 2021

NATUREFORMER KFT ahead in the "Sustainable Design" category.

Kiefel's technology Fiber Thermoforming has been nominated for the German Sustainability Award in the Design category. The machines of the NATUREFORMER series were able to convince in the preselection by their sustainable overall concept: It enables the production of packaging from renewable and biodegradable natural fibers or plant residues while at the same time ensuring efficient use of energy and resources, state-of-the-art safety technology as well as innovative tools. The possible applications are diverse and range from the food & take-away sector to technological packaging, coffee capsules or flower pots.

With the NATUREFORMERS, Kiefel expanded its own material processing expertise and now offers customers suitable turnkey solutions for packaging made from classic, recycled, bio-based plastics or various natural fibers and cellulose.
