Upstream Innovation Guide: a guide to packaging solutions

14 December 2020

ARECO is committed to the reduction of plastic packaging

Committed to a CSR approach since 2011, ARECO has naturally responded to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s call.

Wishing to accompany companies in the transition to a circular economy, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation has drawn up a thematic guide presenting solutions to reduce the use of plastic packaging.

The Upstream Innovation Guide brings together practical and innovative solutions to avoid packaging at the design stage of a product.

Throughout the pages of the guide, you will find more than 100 examples of companies engaged in the transition to a circular economy.


Nebulisation, a solution to limit the use of plastics

ARECO’s nebulisation technology is a solution mentioned in the Upstream Innovation Guide to limit the use of plastic packaging.

The diffusion of micro-droplets of water maintains the humidity necessary to keep products fresh and extend shelf life. Nebulisation reduces the need for packaging while preserving the product and improving the consumer’s shopping experience.
