Filtrona, the global independent market leader in the design, testing and manufacturing of specialist filter solutions, tear tapes and related scientific services, is set to showcase its sustainable product solutions and launch its latest plastic-free innovation, ECO Tube Triple CarbonFilter, at TABEXPO in Bologna from 10-11 May 2023 at stand D5.
Filtrona’s expanding ECO range is key to the company’s sustainability drive and visitorswill be able to find out first-hand how Filtrona is striving to meet the ever-changing needs of its customers with its latest ECO innovation. The new ECO Tube Triple Carbon Filter is a patent-pending sustainable plastic-free filter design that offers similar nicotine delivery to current filters, with a unique end visual and clean post-smoking.
The ECO Tube Triple Carbon Filter meets EU Single Use Plastics Directive (SUPD) requirements, is biodegradable and, based on internal studies, degrades more rapidly than filters constructed with cellulose acetate, attaining 90% biodegradation in 90 days.
The ECO Tube Triple Carbon Filter offers cigarette manufacturers an extensive array of customisable designs in various lengths, circumferences, pressure drops, carbon types, carbon sizes, and configurations for ECO Tube combined segments, with each construction designed to enhance a particular brand and suit customer taste and filtration requirements.
TABEXPO visitors will also be able to learn more about Filtrona’s full range of innovative design, testing and filter manufacturing solutions, ground-breaking innovations in premium packaging tapes, and scientific services that cover a range of commercial testing capabilities.
Alongside Filtrona’s presence at the exhibition, Robert Pye, CEO of Filtrona, will speak at the TABEXPO Conference as a panelist on Wednesday, 10 May 2023 from 11:00am to 12:15pm (CEST) in a discussion on ‘Reinventing for Sustainability’.
Robert Pye, CEO of Filtrona, said “TABEXPO is the perfect platform to do business and showcase the latest industry innovations, so we are delighted to have a stand at the event. Innovation is core to our success and critical to our customers’ success. We are constantly striving to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers and consumers.
