Only 1 % of the world's annual straw reserves could completely replace Expanded Polystyrene. Landpack is the first company in the world that can form straw

The Landbox closes the natural nutrient cycle. In industrial composting plants, biowaste is turned into nutrient-rich biocompost. This replaces conventional fertiliser and peat from drained moors.
Straw is produced in abundance all over the world. Straw is the biomass with the greatest potential for use. In Germany, 30 million tonnes of cereal straw grow every year. Of this, 10 million tonnes of straw can be used annually for non-agricultural applications without ecological disadvantages. Styrofoam could be completely replaced with only 1 % of the world's straw.
We source our straw from farmers in the immediate vicinity with a transport radius of <10 km. In this way, we minimise the ecological footprint in the procurement of raw materials. At the same time, we guarantee maximum transparency over our supply chain. Our customers know from which field and farmer the material of their packaging originates.
Since our straw insulation contains no additives, it can be disposed of in the garden or organic waste. In this way, one Landbox produces biogas for decentralised, base-load capable and sustainable heat and power supply. One Landbox straw 15 litres yields 800 litres of biogas.
We process straw, without additives, into food-grade insulating packaging at our production site in the west of Munich. The plant technology and the production process were developed by us and are internationally protected. Our production process reduces the primary energy requirement to a minimum: we only need 1/50 compared to Styrofoam.
We stand for 100 % renewable energies. Our entire production, administration and development are powered exclusively by renewable energy sources and we have carefully considered the selection of suitable suppliers. For example, our 100 % green electricity comes from regional biogas, hydropower, photovoltaic and wind plants in Bavaria.
A medium-sized Landbox (22 L, 35 mm wall thickness) causes 0.41 kg CO2eq over the entire value chain, including upstream and downstream stages, excluding biogas generation in the digestion process.
At 0.05 L/kg, the Landbox requires virtually no water in production. Recycled paper, on the other hand, requires 224 times as much water.
Based on the German energy mix, one Landbox saves 0.34 kg CO2eq through biogas extraction. The total emissions of a Landbox straw when recycled via the biowaste bin and fermentation are thus only 0.07 kg CO2eq.
We make use of the natural properties of straw
Our technology allows the free shaping of natural fibres while retaining their superior and naturally given insulating and shock absorbing properties.
A process-integrated dedusting, cleaning and disinfection of the straw fibres makes the Landbox suitable for allergy sufferers and food-compliant. Technology, processes, and plant engineering are based on our own proprietary know-how. The production process is suitable for a wide range of applications.Qualification
We use surplus straw from contract farmers in the immediate vicinity. This way, we guarantee maximum transparency, security, and honesty of supply. We tell you which field your straw comes from.Impact
