Packaging

FIBC return program 
Our titanium dioxide package recovery program enables customers to return empty flexible intermediate bulk containers at our expense. Customers can decrease on-site waste volume, lower waste disposal costs, and reduce the volume of scrapped materials in their local landfills.

Waste-free packaging for paper grades
DuPont paper grades are available in "batch includable paper" bags. The special bag components allow the bags and their contents to be included in the customer's process, eliminating empty bag disposal. Several features make "waste-free" packaging possible:

  • special "beater" quality paper
  • water-soluble inks for bag graphics.
The paper must pass several very stringent quality checks before it is used to make the bags. These include a very narrow pH range of the paper, absence of wood shives and other foreign particles, and certain minimum strength requirements.

Slurry Grades 
DuPont supplies titanium dioxide to the coatings and paper markets in a high solids aqueous slurry form. Delivery is by railroad tanker car and truck tanker shipments, so our slurry shipments are considered "waste-free." Our customers simply make their process connections to our tankers and unload the product. This shipment method is very popular with our customers: it not only totally eliminates package waste associated with dry product, but also provides substantial quality and cost advantages.


Waste-free packaging for plastics grades
DuPont plastics grades are available in "batch-includable plastic" bags. The special film structure allows the bags and their contents to be included in the customer's process, eliminating empty bag disposal. Several features make "waste-free" packaging possible:
  • Melting and softening points of the polymer
  • Particle sizes and structure of any additives
  • 100% heat fusion of bag seams with no adhesives
