Hyperbolic™ FIBCs

Hyperbolic™ FIBCs provide the benefits of traditional Baffle Bags but without the need for internal baffles.  This simplifies the FIBC manufacturing process, removing potential points of failure and improving bag stability, fill and discharge rates.

Most importantly a Hyperbolic™ FIBC weighs around 25% less than a similarly sized Baffle Bag, that is because it contains 25% less woven polypropylene (WPP), and a current global focus for sustainability is reduction in the production of plastics.

As with all Polesy’s WPP FIBCs, small WPP Bags, and BOPP laminated WPP Bags, Hyperbolic™ FIBCs are manufactured from Polypropylene (PP) which is 100% recyclable.

  • Made from Polypropylene (PP) meaning 100% Recyclable
  • 25% less PP used than in an equivalent traditional Baffle Bag

Reclaim30™ FIBCs

Reclaim30™ FIBCs are manufactured using 30% Recycled Polypropylene (PP).  The Recycled PP used is not just post-production but also post-industrial and post-consumer waste, meaning PP is being diverted from landfill and incineration and being used to produce Reclam30™ FIBCs.

Using patented technology, our manufacturing partner has produced the world’s first and only Labordata Certified recycled FIBC with Safety Working Loads (SWL) up to 1,500kg with a 5:1 safety factor. Reclaim30™ FIBCs are manufactured in an advanced in-house reprocessing facility and provide an assurance of end-to-end traceability of Recycled PP.

As we all prepare for new National Packaging Laws and Australian Government-mandated packaging standards that will set minimum recycled content requirements, Reclaim30™ FIBCs can become a valued component in your company’s environmental and sustainability strategies.

  • Manufactured with 30% Recycled Polypropylene (PP)
  • Made from Polypropylene (PP) meaning 100% Recyclable

Woven Polypropylene Packaging – FIBCs and Small Bags

All Polesy’s Woven Polypropylene (WPP) Packaging – WPP FIBCs, small WPP Bags, and BOPP laminated WPP Bags – are manufactured from Polypropylene (PP) which is 100% recyclable.

To simplify the future recycling process for WPP Packaging, Polesy has been progressively moving toward the removal of any non-PP components in its WPP Packaging, most commonly labels and sewing thread.  By utilising new technologies, Polesy can offer small WPP Bags and BOPP laminated WPP Bags that no longer require sewing thread for hemmed tops and bottoms – most of our bags are now sealed using ultrasonic vibrations, hot air or direct heat to bond the WPP tapes together at a molecular level.

The Paper in our Multiwall Paper Sacks can be recycled up to 7 times!

As we move to the ultimate sustainability goal of a circular economy, particularly for packaging, the question will change from “Can this product / material be recycled?” to “How many times can this product / material be recycled?”.

All Polesy’s Multiwall Paper Sacks are manufactured using European FSC-Compliant Sackcraft Paper.  European Sackcraft Paper is sustainably harvested from tree species with longer fibres.  Each time paper is recycled, the fibres become shorter during the process, and the fibre is regraded – recycled Sackcraft paper can be used to produce cardboard, recycled cardboard can be used to produce writing paper, etc.  By using long fibre European Sackcraft Paper, Polesy is contributing to sustainable remanufacturing of paper products.

Bulk Packing

Polesy is constantly working with its manufacturing partners and customers to reduce the packaging required for the transportation and storage of its bags. 

A key development towards this goal is bulk packing – wherever practical Polesy has moved from bale packing to pallet packing or large format cardboard carton packing to reduce the amount of packaging used per bag supplied.

All Polesy’s bulk packing is either 100% recyclable – Polypropylene (PP) or Cardboard – or already produced used recycled materials.

International Certification is the key to ensuring environmentally sustainable and socially ethical products

At Polesy our supply chain is global – we work with manufacturing partners across Europe, the Middle East, South Asia (Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan), Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, and Vietnam), and East Asia (China and South Korea).  Every one of these countries and regions has different local laws regarding environmental protection, employment, and workplace health and safety.

To ensure that Polesy’s supply chain is ethical – for the environment and for the workers employed to manufacture our products – we require our manufacturing partners continually achieve compliance with International Standards governing their operations and their impacts.

Polesy requires relevant compliance with the following International Standards:

  • ISO 9001:2015 Quality
  • ISO 14001:2015 Environment
  • ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health & Safety
  • ISO 22000:2018 Food Safety
  • FSSC 22000 V6 Food Safety
  • BRCGS Food Safety
  • Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 No Harmful Chemicals in Textile Production
  • Oeko-Tex® STeP Sustainable Textile Production
  • GOTS Global Organic Textile Standard
  • amfori BSCI Business Social Compliance Index
  • SEDEX Supplier Ethical Data Exchange

Working with Government and Industry to create a sustainable packaging future

Polesy and its manufacturing partners do not work in isolation to develop sustainable packaging solutions, we collaborate with other businesses and industries towards a common goal of a more sustainable packaging future.

Polesy is proud to be an active member of APCO (the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation), working together with other suppliers, manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, and all levels of government in Australia, to develop and improve packaging to reduce environmental impacts and increase recyclability and circularity in the Australian economy.

Commercial Textiles

VTex™ by Polesy

VTex™ by Polesy is the latest innovation in bed linen – air jet woven using Australian Cotton, free from contamination, fibre shedding and pilling, and with a product life of over 250 commercial laundry cycles, items made using VTex™ by Polesy provide customers with double the longevity of conventional commercial bed linen.

What makes VTex™ by Polesy sustainable?

  • The cotton used in VTex™ is Australian; Australian Cotton production is the most water efficient in the world.
  • The facilities that produce VTex™ are solar powered and use heat exchange and water recycling processes to greatly reduce the power required during production and prevent waste heat and water entering the environment.
  • VTex™ products dry faster at lower temperature meaning reduced power consumption across the life of the product.
  • VTex™ products have double the useful life of conventional commercial linen products meaning less production required over time.


All Polesy’s Commercial Linen and Towelling products are certified to OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100, meaning no harmful chemicals have been used in their production from crop through to finished item.

The absence of harmful chemicals on the farm, in the factory, and in the products supplied by Polesy protects the health of the environment and your customers.


Polesy’s Commercial Linen and Towelling products are manufactured in facilities that are certified to OEKO-TEX® STeP (Sustainable Textile Production) and GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard), meaning customers can be assured that products supplied by Polesy are ethically and sustainably manufactured.

Both these International Standards require strict adherence to guidelines on:

  • Environmental and chemical management
  • Social responsibility and fair working conditions
  • Safety and protection of workers
  • Continuous improvement of production processes and efficient use of resources

Textile Recycling Program partnering with BlockTexx

Polesy is currently working to develop a program of end-of-life recycling for all the Commercial products it supplies, in cooperation with BlockTexx, the world’s first fully operational chemical textile recycler. 

The Polesy Textile Recycling Program is designed for customers that have no options for environmentally responsible disposal of linen, towelling and bedding at the end of its useful life.

Instead of sending the items to landfill, and for a cost similar to disposal, items can be collected for recycling by BlockTexx. The cotton content becomes CellTexx® that can be used to feed new Australian cotton crops, and the polyester content becomes PolyTexx® pellets that can be processed into myriad products including fill for bedding products and the polyester component of GRS-certified polyester/cotton sheeting.
