Vinfoil Optima SF110MF is granted the Carbon Compensation certificate

Vinfoil recently finalized its carbon compensation project and became one of the first companies in the cold transfer industry to receive the Carbon Compensation certificate. Being awarded the certificate by the Swiss company, Myclimate, ensures the production of every new Vinfoil Optima SF110MF is carbon compensated 100%.

Vinfoil reported that the Optima SF110MF machine produces a total of  45,3 tons CO2, at least an additional 20% should be added when the emissions are compensated to consider for the uncertainty. The machine itself is responsible for 41,8 tons CO2 and the share of the overhead emissions is 3,5 tons CO2.

As of today, every Vinfoil Optima SF110MF sold will be included with a Myclimate 100% carbon compensated certificate. With the certificate, we have compensated all CO2 emissions which occur during production. Based on the results shown, Myclimate will make sure investments in several carbon compensated projects are made all around the world to ensure a 100% CO2 compensation.

“It makes Vinfoil proud we have been able to pursue Vinfoil’s mission and increase the sustainability level of our cold transfer solutions and the printing industry as a whole. For many years, as a leading innovation company in the cold transfer business, Vinfoil has been striving to increase sustainability in its production and setting this step has added extra value to our concept for us, but mainly for our customers,” says Vincent van der Heijden, President and C.E.O. of Vinfoil.
