Global Marketing Manager, Seng Keong Low, comments: “Although recent trends have brought the topics of single-use plastics and sustainability to the forefront of the conversations, Essentra Filters has always been committed towards a sustainable future. We have continuously been innovating new, high quality, eco-friendly products, with existing offerings such as our Paper-Cellulose Acetate mix Bitech™ Filter, to single-segment paper filters such as Myria™ and Ochre Filters. In the latest step of our sustainability evolution, our new ECO Cavitec™, ECO Sensation™, and ECO Cavitec Sensation™ filters offer a plastic-free, 100 per cent biodegradable alternative with unique sensorial attributes and quality performance, a true revolution in filters technology.”
According to a press release, the ECO Cavitec™ Filter is a proprietary, patent filed, eco-friendly filter, with unique sensorial attributes, reducing the efficiency of a typical paper filter to allow for a fuller flavour delivery. “Manufactured using Essentra’s market leading Cavitec™ technology, the design is customisable and can be combined with any other segments, in addition to customisation for the size, cavity length, number of cavities, pressure drop and constructed material i.e. paper or other non-woven materials,” says the press release.
The ECO Sensation™ Filter is a proprietary, eco-friendly filter option to engage the consumer with their senses. A capsule is embedded in the paper material during manufacturing, which can be crushed at any point, giving consumers control of their taste experience. In addition to customisation of capsule type, cavity size, or use of coloured plugwraps, ECO Sensation™ Filter can be manufactured using different paper types, combined with other end segments, or make use of our Infused™ technology to achieve additional sensory benefits.
A proprietary patent filed filter, ECO Cavitec Sensation™ is an eco-friendly filter with three unique sensorial attributes, combining the properties of non-woven materials with the "Essentra’s market leading Cavitec™ technology for a truly sustainable future". As the capsule is free to move within the cavity, consumers can hear the capsule audibly rattle within the cavity while feeling the vibration through the fingers. The capsule can be crushed at any time, providing consumers flavour on demand. As with all offerings from Essentra Filters, the design of ECO Cavitec Sensation™ is customisable and can be manufactured using different paper types, combined with other end segments, or make use of our Infused™ technology, in addition to customisation of capsule type, cavity size, or use of coloured plugwraps.
