Starlinger Launches Cb*starKON Conversion Line, Sustainable CB*Star® Bags

Austria-based Starlinger & Co. GmbH - a manufacturer of machinery and complete lines for producing woven plastic bags - has introduced cb*starKON, the first line for the automatic production of shopping bags from woven plastic fabric. When used in a plant producing 40 million shopping bags a year, the cb*starKON conversion line pays for itself within a short time, according to Starlinger. The automation process also allows manufacturers to produce a range of styles and meet demand for short delivery times.

Starlinger's cb*starKON line produces its eco-friendly, 100-percent recyclable CB*Star® shopping bag, comprising a compound of polypropylene (PP) fabric and a reverse-printed biaxially oriented PP film. Weighing approximately 65 grams, the bag is lightweight yet durable, with a woven fabric structure that is tear-resistant and able to hold up to 30 kilograms. CB*Star bags are designed to be reused more than 100 times, thereby reducing raw material consumption and plastic waste accumulation. In addition, Starlinger reports the production process emits 30-percent less carbon dioxide than production of paper carrier bags.
