In 2018, Fameccanica received the “LIFE Best Award” for its Glueless project, having ranked in the top 62 LIFE+ projects financed by the European Union during the two-year period 2016-2017. The LIFE+ Programme is the European Union’s financial instrument supporting environmental, nature conservation and climate action projects.
Fameccanica created new, “Glueless” designs for diapers and developed the technologies to integrate on production lines, with innovative solutions for thermo-mechanical and ultrasonic sealing which are now available to all companies who choose to adopt this approach.
Fameccanica’s Glueless project demonstrated how replacing the glue in disposable hygienic-sanitary products with alternative sealing methods can significantly reduce their environmental impact. This contributes to the protection of the environment, as well as making significant savings in the final cost of the product.
