BillerudKorsnäs - D-Sack

March 27, 2018 - BillerudKorsnäs has launched a dissolvable sack for cement and other construction materials — D-Sack — that dissolves in a conventional mixer during the mixing process, which minimizes cement waste, eliminates packaging waste and saves time, whilst ensuring a cleaner, safer and healthier workplace.

D-Sack was co-developed in close cooperation between BillerudKorsnäs and LafargeHolcim, a leading global construction materials company.

“I am extremely proud of this achievement and very pleased that D-Sack has now been formally launched. It is an innovation that has been produced in our sack laboratory in close cooperation with LafargeHolcim designed to meet specific user needs and needs in the value chain. The sack laboratory has done an excellent job and set the standard for innovation in the packaging industry,” says Mark van der Merwe, Business Development Director, Sack Solutions at BillerudKorsnäs.

BillerudKorsnäs pointed out that D-Sack is an excellent example of the potential in challenging conventional packaging with a sustainable future as the target.
