Local production

Despite the awareness of the consequences of plastic packaging, its production is continuously increasing. The manufacturing of Styrofoam is also growing at an annual rate of 5 %. Yet there is a quasi-unused raw material worldwide: straw.
Only 1 % of the world's annual straw reserves could completely replace Styrofoam. Landpack is the first company in the world that can form straw
without the use of additives and turn it into a genuine alternative to Styrofoam. Our pioneering work has been rewarded with several international patents. Our insulated straw packaging is a shining example of an efficient, bio-based circular economy: a truly sustainable solution to a global plastic waste problem.

Biobased

Nutrients stay in the cycle

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.
50% of the grain harvest is straw

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.
Local raw material sourcing, 100 % transparency

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.
Ecological and practical: disposal in organic waste

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.
Patented technology

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.
Green electricity and green gas

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.
Resources

We substitute fossil resources by using a local agricultural waste product as primary raw material. The use of this waste product as a substitute for petroleum contributes to resource efficiency.

Local Agriculture

Landpack straw comes from contract farmers in the surrounding area. This minimises transport distances and creates a further source of income for our farmers in addition to the grain yields.

Cradle-to-Cradle

From the raw material to the processing with 100 % renewable energies and the return into the natural cycle – a bio-based circular economy, in which nature is given back what is taken out.

Technology

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.
