Pioneering a Greener Future:
Sustainable Technology at Chocal

Chocal Transparent Fibre Packaging

"Our packaging achieves beauty through minimal material usage, blending aesthetics with sustainability."

- Dr.-Ing. Alexander von Niessen

Earth-Friendly Packaging:
Our Pledge to Sustainable Solutions

Our packaging solutions are designed according to the cradle-to-cradle principle and embody nature's intelligence. Made only of organic materials, they can be both composted or recycled after use. In regions equipped with robust recycling systems, our packaging is seamlessly recyclable within the existing infrastructure (see technosphere).


In the absence of available infrastructure, Chocal packaging biodegrades naturally without leaving behind harmful micro plastics (see ecosphere). Even our printing inks and barrier coatings are biodegradable and non-toxic, fostering a sustainable cycle of creation and decomposition. Wherever in the world our packaging is thrown away, it does not leave behind waste but nutrients.

Ending Plastic Pollution: Securing a Healthy Future for Generations

The Cradle to Cradle Concept

Ever heard of a concept where waste does not exist? Cradle to Cradle is a revolutionary approach that envisions products designed from the get-go to be beneficial for both people and the environment. Professor Michael Braungart, co-founder of the Cradle to Cradle concept, advocates for products designed to be endlessly reusable or biodegradable. It is about reimagining our relationship with materials, manufacturing, and consumption, aiming not just for less harm but for positive contributions to ecosystems.
