Bellevue Palace

Environment Week 2024

ATB and PAPACKS present joint project

Berlin, June 6, 2024 – The prestigious Environment Week took place in the picturesque grounds of Bellevue Palace from June 4 to 5. This unique event, organized by the German Federal Environmental Foundation (DBU), brought together high-ranking political guests and leading figures from business, science and civil society to present the latest innovations and sustainable solutions for shaping our future responsibly.

Located in the heart of Berlin, Bellevue Palace is not only the official residence of the German Federal President, but also an important backdrop for events dedicated to the most pressing issues of our time. The Week of the Environment is one such event – a platform where visionary ideas and sustainable technologies are presented at the highest political level.

ATB and PAPACKS present joint research project

The Leibniz Institute for Agricultural Engineering and Bioeconomy e.V. (ATB) and PAPACKS are proud to be jointly represented at the Week of the Environment. The joint research project “PALFAFORM – PALUDI FASERGUSS FORMTEILE” will also be presented at this event.

About the PALFAFORM project
The PALFAFORM project is dedicated to the development of sustainable packaging solutions made from paludibio mass, in particular plant fibers obtained from peatlands. This innovative technology enables the production of environmentally friendly, biodegradable packaging that represents a real alternative to conventional plastic packaging.

Advantages of PALFAFORM

  • Environmentally friendly: Biodegradable and compostable, reduces the amount of plastic waste.
  • Climate protection: Use of moorland plants to reduce CO2 emissions.
  • Sustainability: Continuous and renewable source of raw materials for packaging.
  • Innovative products: Versatile and robust packaging for various applications.

Presentation at the trade fair
Visitors to the Environment Week were able to find out about the potential of paludibio mass at the ATB and PAPACKS stand. In addition to ecological building materials, peat substitutes for soil substrates and molded fiber parts, sustainable packaging was also presented.

Carsten Lühr, project manager at the Leibniz Institute for Agricultural Engineering and Bioeconomy (ATB):

“Environment Week provides an excellent platform to present our innovative solutions for the sustainable use of paludibio mass. With projects such as PALFAFORM, we show that it is possible to protect ecologically valuable peatlands and at the same time produce economically viable, environmentally friendly products. Our research not only contributes to climate protection, but also creates new perspectives for the bioeconomy.”

Tahsin Dag, founder and CEO of PAPACKS:

“We are proud to take part in the Week of the Environment together with the ATB and to present our PALFAFORM project. This event is a great opportunity to show how innovative packaging solutions made from paludiculture can make a positive contribution to environmental protection. Our biodegradable packaging is an important step towards a more sustainable future and shows that economic success and environmental responsibility can go hand in hand.”

We invite you to join us on this exciting journey towards a greener and more sustainable future.

Environment Week has once again shown that innovative and sustainable solutions are not only possible, but also necessary to preserve our environment for future generations. ATB and PAPACKS are proud to be part of this movement and look forward to continuing their research and development in this area.
