plastic and paper waste, said rich savner, director of public affairs at pathmark. pathmark believes that many customers are environmentally conscious and will be receptive to using the earthwise bags. and the benefits to consumers are real not only are the bags environmentally friendly, inexpensive, and aesthetically pleasing, but they can be reused for a variety of purposes. commerce, ca earthwise bag company, inc. recently announced that pathmark, one of the northeasts food store chains with 141 supermarkets in the new york, new jersey and philadelphia metropolitan areas has launched its green shopping bag program with earthwises reusable bags. available at all pathmark stores, the bags offer an environmentally and economically friendly alternative to plastic and paper shopping bags typically found in grocery stores. fine wines from france are in the bag the switch of quality wines from bottle to bags in europe comes as the result of major advances in filling and packaging technology with rapak leading the researchbased advances. rapak is now offering this proven technology for packing quality wines in bag in box in the usa. the key factor is the ability to reduce the amount of oxygen in the finished pack to minimal levels. traditionally it has been necessary to add sulphur dioxide to soak up oxygen, and since this can adversely affect the flavour of more sensitive quality wines it limits the range of wines able to be packed into bags. now rapak has introduced new technologies including enhanced oxygen barriers on the films which line the bags a high oxygen barrier dispense tap with simple button operation and a lift and peel security seal a patented nitrogen shrouded fill head which minimizes dissolved oxygen pickup during the filling process the combination of these technological developments is shelflife extension. oxygen ingress is the major factor dictating the longterm quality of the wine, therefore reduced oxygen during filling and storage can significantly extend shelf life. the combination of the technological advances in packaging and filling and the ready acceptance by consumers and retailers of this packaging format means baginbox wine is set to become an even more familiar sight on the supermarket shelf. first commercial sterilant for lowacid aseptic packaging&nbsp ecolab inc., a leading global developer and marketer of premium cleaning, sanitizing, pest elimination, maintenance and repair products and services for the hospitality, foodservice, healthcare and industrial markets, has announced it has developed enviro san and es1000, a patented new commercial liquid sterilant system for use in aseptic packaging for low acid dairy beverages in pet polyethylene terephthalate bottling applications. ecolab has registration from the u. s. environmental protection agency for the use of enviro san and es1000 as a commercial sterilant treatment system for packaging aseptically in fda validated equipment for low acid filler. the twopart system consists of enviro san, a peracidbased solution, and es1000, an adjuvant that allows for effective antimicrobial sterilization with lower concentrations of peroxyacetic acid. enviro san and es1000 will help dairy beverage bottling facilities lower their aseptic packaging costs by reducing the operating temperatures, raw materials and freight costs. oxygenscavenging
