Thanks to the newly-developed sealing compound, standard crown corks are now 0.04 millimeters thinner and 0.3 grams lighter, thereby helping to use raw materials more efficiently and significantly reducing the consumption of resources. This SVELON® 830 LG (Low Gauge) sealing compound free of PVC and plasticizers represents a real innovation. One major customer alone processes around 42 billion of these new crown corks every year. 10,000 tons of steel can now be saved every year which corresponds with the amount of steel installed in London’s new Wembley Stadium. A seemingly trivial measure thus revealed highly-innovative development performance which in turn convinced the jury.

Furthermore the Altana Group, to which Actega DS belongs, was awarded gold status in the renowned EcoVadis sustainability rating. Accordingly, the Group has improved significantly over 2015 when it was awarded silver status. EcoVadis analyzes the company’s environmental aspects, procurement policy, compliance and labor conditions on the basis of the international ISO 26000 sustainability guideline and has evolved to become the world’s leading rating platform for the chemical sector. This award confirms the company’s vision of sustainability as a decisive factor for corporate success.
