Biodegradable Polypropylene Eco-Friendly Packaging, Document Storage and Mailing Products and Solutions Now Available


Marysville, OH -- September 12, 2007 -- Univenture, Inc., the award winning inventor and manufacturer of a wide array of eco-friendly packaging, document storage and direct mail products, announced its product line can now be produced from biodegradable polypropylene. Univenture's EcoEndure products currently available are Safety-sleeves®, UniKeep' Disc Wallets and Binders, and EnvyPak' envelopes and mailers.

Univenture's EcoEndure product line, along with the company's core family of products, will be showcased at Graph Expo and the Biodegradable Plastics in Packaging Applications Summit. Both conferences are located in Chicago, IL, and take place the week of September 9-14, 2007.

Ross Youngs, Univenture's CEO and Founder said, "Our new biodegradable polypropylene products will offer additional EcoEndure options to choose from. Univenture's commitment to the environment began with the innovative Safety-sleeve® disc sleeves which reduced the plastic needed for a disc package by over 90% and was our first product invented and manufactured. Using our unique manufacturing technologies, Univenture will continue to develop products that successfully use the most eco-friendly materials. This is an exciting time for us and the variety of industries we serve."

Univenture's EcoEndure products offer a number of different materials options:

Biodegradable polypropylene, manufactured with enhanced bio decomposition (EBD), is biodegradable in aerobic and anaerobic conditions without resulting in toxic residue. The biodegradability of a polypropylene product produced with enhanced bio decomposition does not jeopardize the product's quality, nor compromise product strength, durability or visual characteristics.

PLA (polylactic acid) film, made from NatureWorks polymer, is a renewable and sustainable clear plastic made from #2 field corn. Safety-sleeve disc packaging, EnvyPak products and Flexpax packaging call all be manufactured using PLA film.

All core Univenture products are available in 100% polypropylene. Polypropylene is manufactured from clean technologies that avoid the creation of harmful gases created in the manufacture and disposal of PVC. The finished poly product requires as much as 30% fewer resources than products made from other mixed materials. Polypropylene is archival safe since it is extremely stable and will not out gas.

The UniKeep EnviroBinders can be manufactured with up to 85% recyclable content. These binders have all the same features and benefits as the UniKeep binders made entirely from polypropylene, even the rings.

During product design and manufacturing, Univenture adheres to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle guidelines. The product design team develops packaging, storage and mailing solutions that maximize production efficiency and effectively utilize materials and resources to ensure long term usefulness. Extending the useful life of a package not only supports waste reduction, but also supports a marketing objective of extending the value of the package's marketing message. The company's EcoEndure material options provide environmentally responsible alternatives that meet specific environmental impact objectives.

Univenture's eco-friendly products are ideal for a variety of applications across industries that are seeking environmentally sound packaging and mailing options: optical disc packaging, publishing, direct mail and marketing, government, graphic design, office suppliers and dealers, and more.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
