FRANKLIN, WI -- (Marketwired) -- 06/07/13 -- Precision Color Graphics, an industry leading pre-press, printing and packaging company, received a patent for their bipolymer lined multi-layer bags and pouches for their line of Ecoterah™ packaging.

The patent, #8,387,797, ensures Precision Color Graphic's Ecoterah packaging is comprised of at least one paper layer, the paper layers being biodegradable and a sheet of film adherent to one of said layers, with said film sheet being leak-proof and biodegradable.

"We're reinventing the print packaging industry through our commitment to sustainability," noted John Goeden, President of Precision Color Graphics. "Our clients, whether they're packaging pet food or potato chips, want to provide their customers with a 100% compostable product upon the end of its life cycle. We used sustainable elements for all packaging components -- the layers, varnish, ink and adhesives."

This revolutionary new line of earth-friendly packaging, made from US based renewable plant resources, also earned the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) certification. This certification assures the packaging meets ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) D6868 and D6400 standards. PCG's Ecoterah products are the first multi-layer retail packaging to earn this certification in all of the U.S., Canada, Europe and Japan.

"The Ecoterah packaging is FDA human-grade compliant and has been fully implemented and is currently used for pet food, pet treats and potato chips. Pouches holding nuts, granola, coffee, powdered drinks and hops are in trials now," noted Dan Brulz, Vice President of Precision Color Graphics.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is recognizing Precision's commitment and ongoing efforts to employ sustainable business practices by inviting them to become a Green Tier Program Member.

"Wisconsin's Green Tier Program is a very unique and prestigious program seeking out business with superior environmental performance. Precision's dedication and resilience to develop and market the Ecoterah product as well as their relentless innovation made them a perfect fit for the program," noted Gregory Breese, Development Specialist for Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

The Governor of Wisconsin will be honoring Precision Color Graphics on June 10 at 11:30 at Precision Color Graphic's facilities (9640 South Oakwood Park Drive, Franklin, WI 53132).
