Premier Farnell gets greener

Distributor Premier Farnell has implemented a second environmentally friendly packaging process for customer shipments.

The process brings together the biodegradable and recyclable materials with high efficiency packaging machinery that reduces energy use.

Last month it introduced biodegradable plastic cell packaging for integrated circuits.

Air-filled plastic ‘void fill’ materials are being replaced with an environmentally friendly alternative based on recyclable paper from sustainable sources, and the packing boxes are made also made from recyclable materials.
