Ever since its founding, easy2cool GmbH has set out to revolutionise the market for mobile cooling. To this end, the company has developed a novel, sustainable thermal insulation material in cooperation with the Institute of Natural Materials Technology at the TU Dresden. The goal was to find an environmentally friendly insulation material that could serve as a sustainable alternative to expanded polystyrene (EPS).
The solution: paperfloc – a new type of ecological shipping insulation made from cellulose fibers. For this purpose, waste paper is shredded in a special process and finally processed into insulating mats or bags.
Meanwhile, the range of innovative products extends from cool boxes and gel packs for the leisure sector to solutions for professional deep-freeze transport. The in-house production facility in Bavaria ensures a high degree of flexibility and is the enabler for the high-quality standards.
Sustainability and resource efficiency play an essential role, from production to disposal of our paperfloc shipping insulations.
Moreover, our system keeps the disposal effort for the consumer as low as possible.
That’s why cellulose!
Paperfloc systems offer the best price-performance ratio compared to insulating systems for the shipment of temperature-sensitive products currently on the market. Our paperfloc packaging was verified by more than 1000 climate tests in internal and external laboratories.
Negative Carbon Footprint!
Energy and material efficiency
VDI Centre for Resource Efficiency conducted a study on behalf of the German Federal Ministry of the Environment and compared the energy and material efficiency of various insulating materials. The result: Among those materials that can also be used for shipment cooling, “in the overall evaluation (…) insulation out of loose cellulose fibres comes definitely out on top”! An extremely low energy consumption with negative carbon emissions and recyclability at the end of the life cycle are the reasons for that.
ZIM Cooperation Project of the Year
On the occasion of the Innovation Day for Medium Sized Companies (SMEs) 2021, easy2cool GmbH was honoured by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) as ZIM Cooperation Project of the Year for the development of the ecological paperfloc insulating packaging. At the event, Economics Minister Peter Altmaier praised the award winners as “the pulsating powerhouse of our national economy and a constant source of entrepreneurial creativity”.
The paperfloc technology was developed in cooperation with TU Dresden (Institute of Natural Materials Technology) as part of a ZIM R&D cooperation project.
- The quality of our products is confirmed in regular checks.
- In addition to climate tests, the easyAkkus get tested in a pressure test to meet the high requirements of refrigerated shipping.
- Our high quality standards were certified in the context of the ISO 9001 & 14001 certification.
