Sustainability is a future-oriented issue. The way forward is being set today, and it requires interdisciplinary strategies. It is not always necessary to reinvent the wheel. Two sustainable packaging solutions co-developed at Optima are proof of this. One solution received the German Packaging Award, the other is in the running for the Innovation Award for Climate and Environment by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment.

A new aesthetic for
paper hygiene packaging
A new aesthetic for paper hygiene packaging

The paper hygiene products market and its packaging are undergoing massive change. There are three main drivers behind this, says Oliver Rebstock, the Managing Director of Optima Nonwovens. Is there urgent need for action?


High-tech packaging for
baby diapers
The OPTIMA DS1 in production.

The young company Viet Sing produces high quality diapers. Happily, the demand for these diapers is increasing. To increase its capacity, the company invested in state-of-the-art German technology, the basic model DS1 from Optima Nonwovens for diaper packaging. The system, which was delivered two months after ordering, is extremely stable and reduces personnel costs by 50 percent.

Growing needs in Asia
Packaging of feminine hygiene products

Optima offers a highly flexible machine platform for packaging paper hygiene products, starting with entry-level versions and specially designed for the Asian market. The latest version of this series – the OPTIMA FS1 – was exclusively developed for feminine hygiene products. A unique aspect of the machine platform is that entry-level models can initially run semi-automatically and later be upgraded to fully automatic systems.

A pearl for Asia

Asian freshwater pearls are highly desirable. They have become the namesake of a new system for packaging feminine hygiene products. OPTIMA "Pearl" has been designed to completely meet the requirements of the global manufacturers producing in Asia, with high output packaging in small volumes, which is typical of the Asian market. What is not so typical is the exceptional priceperformance ratio.
