LATI has confirmed its commitment to sustainability and drive to offer alternatives to fossil fuel plastics by signing an agreement with The Hemp Plastic Company for the distribution of hemp-based plastics in Europe.
LATI, a leader in self-extinguishing and high-performance thermoplastic compounds, has signed an agreement with The Hemp Plastic Company, a leading provider of sustainable hemp plastics, to distribute The Hemp Plastic Company’s line of ecological hemp blended plastics.
These hemp plastics are usable across diverse sectors in the plastics industry, from packaging to automotive, from furniture to toys, and many others.
The road to a greener future undertaken by LATI, one of the most important European producers of technical thermoplastics for engineering use, continues thanks to this agreement with The Hemp Plastic Company for the distribution of environmentally friendly compounds that can address the technical, safety and supply requirements of different industrial sectors.
For years LATI has been committed to offering alternatives to plastics based solely on non-renewable sources, with a lower environmental impact. LATI’s range now includes sustainable products such as compounds based on polymers from mechanical or chemical recycling or from renewable sources. The themes of reuse and circularity have been in LATI’s DNA since its foundation in 1945 when Cosimo Conterno founded the first factory to recycle war remnants. Since then, LATI has never abandoned its vocation towards circular economy and sustainability.
“We are pleased to be working with LATI to bring our line of environmentally friendly hemp polymers to the European market,” said Glen Kayll, CEO of The Hemp Plastic Company. “Hemp is one of nature’s greatest natural carbon absorbers, and together with a leader like LATI, we can accelerate our mutual customers’ transition to sustainable alternatives that reduce plastic and carbon emissions and are affordable, available in volume and relatively simple to implement.”
“Sustainability has always been a fundamental value for LATI that guides the way of conducting business and relating to all stakeholders,” said Vittorio Gerola, Sales Director of LATI. “Thanks to the partnership with The Hemp Plastic Company, we provide an additional solution to the sustainability goals of our customers and to reduce carbon emissions.”
