Overview of the project "Modernisation of Estiko-Plastar's production and development of a resource-efficient vacuum bag product" conducted by Estiko-Plastar AS.

The main objective of the project is to develop the capability of producing environmentally-friendly packages and to lower the overall ecological footprint of Estiko-Plastar’s production processes by modernizing the production machinery and processes. In the course of the project, the necessary investments for the resource-efficient vacuum bag production process will be carried out and the acquired equipment will be used to manufacture these products. In addition, the investments will ensure a lower ecological footprint and higher resource savings throughout production activities. Thanks to  investments, we will also automate a number of manual operations in the production planning software, thus ensuring better digitalisation and corporate management planning.

Investments made during the project:

  • Acquisition of a new printing machine
  • Acquisition of an additional plastic granulation device to increase recyclability
  • Acquisition of a laser cleaning device for environmentally friendly cleaning of aniloxes used in printing machines
  • Extensions to an existing afterburner
  • Additional developments to business software (MES and QMS) for more efficient use of resources

The project is financed in cooperation with Norway Grants "Green ICT" programme and Enterprise Estonia (EAS). The programme “Green ICT” objective is increased value creation and sustainable growth in Estonia’s private sector. Green ICT aims to stimulate and develop innovation-led long-term business cooperation between Estonia and Norway. For this bilateral cooperation projects are supported to enhance joint business ambitions and innovation. For more information, please visit their webpage.
