Our solution: features that make the Kit Globetrotter Lucy Plast system unique

Lucy Plast intends to provide an alternative solution to the use of wood, guaranteeing approved and certified performance standards, applying the principle of circular economy, starting from regenerated and traced materials, making them recyclable and potentially infinitely repulpable.The System is equipped with accessories that represent the real technical novelty in the current market panorama and with Industrial Invention Patent no. 1365301 (UIBM ID. 102005901296418) entitled: "Transport and storage system for reels" filed in January 2021.

Moreover, considering the principle that high reuse of the asset is a fundamental requirement of our KIt Globetrotter, Lucy Plast has designed each element in such a way as to make the pallet (the main element of the kit) configurable to perfectly meet the most demanding needs of end users.

Materials and manufacturing technology

The kit is made entirely of 100% PPR (recycled polypropylene), certified PSV (Second Life Plastic).
In particular, after internal granulation of PPR (second raw material) with 4.0 technological systems, the material is injection moulded inside Lucy Plast (SHORT STRAW).

Our compound will also contain variable percentages of PP from pre-consumer industrial waste from the user customers themselves (Circular Economy).

Description of results obtained and benefits for the user:

  • 1.
    Certain weight of the LucyPlast packaging system lower than wood and not subject to any alteration. In fact, wooden packaging has variable weights and volumes depending on whether the season is dry, cold or wet. The Globetrotter Lucy Plast kit complete with all elements weighs 29 kg +/- 5%, while the same in wood has an average weight between 47kg and 56kg;
  • 2.
    The Lucy Plast kit is not attacked by spores, fungi and moulds in full compliance with hygienic regulations for worldwide transport;
  • 3.
    The individual elements of the kit have 85% closed surfaces, making it as easy as possible for operators to wash;
  • 4.
    High number of reuses (7/8 times) far superior to wood (2/3 times), in compliance with the user manual that Lucy Plast provides to users;
  • 5.
    The kit is made from recycled polypropylene MONOMATERIAL Lucy Plast materials: short chain;
  • 6.
    Versatile pallet, which can be used with or without flanges, for reels up to 800 mm in diameter and 650 kg in weight;
  • 7.
    Stackable system with 2 or 3 levels in height - without intermediate pallets;
  • 8.
    Adaptability to all automatic and intensive warehouse systems, without any problem of optical reading on the rails;
  • 9.
    Black colour for maximum sealing efficiency during transport at high temperatures and UV resistance;
  • 10.
    Benefits in the annual budget: reduced logistics costs, highly competitive selling price, high reuse, optimisation of storage space.
  • 11.
    END OF LIFE: Valorisation instead of disposal


  • Re-use up to 7/8 times in the distribution cycle of the user and/or secondary users
  • It is a returnable product
  • Product made from recycled PSV (Plastics Second Life) plastic materials
  • Being 100% mono-material (RPP) the product is easily and entirely recyclable in turn.


  • Re-use maximum 2/3 times (with maintenance). Most of the time it is used only once (disposable item) and, in general, there are not virtuous paths of circularity
  • Low recyclability, with no possibility of reuse in the same chain of origin.
