The innovative soustainable, cost-effective and long-lasting packaging system made of recycled and recyclable plastics

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).
