The insulated shipping containers can be used in the pharma industry and are reportedly environmentally friendly.


Atlas Molded Products, a division of Atlas Roofing Corporation, has added it’s branded DuraTherm BDT (biodegradable technology) to its product line-up. DuraTherm has been known to insulate and protect temperature-sensitive products, but now, according to their packager, DuraTherm BDT can biodegrade in wetter landfills up to 92% in four years, while also maintaining its structural integrity throughout its distribution life cycle along with full recycling capabilities. These aforementioned products are more landfill friendly packaging solutions designed for cold chain shipping, handling, and storage needs.

“With the introduction of DuraTherm BDT, our customers now have the peace of mind that their temperature-sensitive products will be delivered sustainably to the consumer,” says Steve Heaton, VP and general manager of Atlas Molded Products.
