Scholle IPN: Industry Leader in Lubricant Packaging

October 20, 2020

ScholleIPN automotive fluids motor-oil packaging

In 2012, Scholle IPN was the first company to release flexible packaging for the lubricant sector. Since then, we have evolved into an industry leader in packaging for motor oils and other automotive fluids. With continuous improvement and innovation embedded in our culture, we are moving toward more sustainable products for our customers. Recyclable products with reduced carbon footprint are part of our research and development at every level.

Variable Package Sizes and Emerging Markets

Traditionally, motor oil packaging is made from bulky rigid plastic which takes up more shelf space, cargo space, requires additional packaging for shipping, and creates more waste in our landfills. We produce bag-in-box packaging for automotive fluids to accommodate the needs of our customers including, but not limited to:

  • 1-liter pouches
  • 5-liter bag-in-box
  • 6-quart bag-in-box
  • 3-gallon bag-in-box
  • 6-gallon bag-in-box

This variety of packaging sizes allows retailers to carry a wider range of brands and product types to meet the needs of consumers. In addition to motor oil, bag-in-box packaging is used for antifreeze and automatic transmission fluids – with imminent expansion into other automotive products.

A Global Leader with Local Solutions

As a global leader in flexible packaging solutions, Scholle IPN recently surpassed a major production milestone of 60 million bag-in-box packages. We’ve integrated our packaging solutions with better dispensing technology and high-speed filling equipment. Our customers value our ability to engineer an entire solution from film, to fitment, to fill. That’s why we manufacture everywhere so we can serve you anywhere.

  • Flexible sizing for the needs of our customers.
  • Secure, lightweight, ecommerce-ready pouches without the need for additional shipping material.
  • Better product-to-package ratio than traditional rigid formats like bottles, jars, and jugs.
  • Lightweight, strong, flexible packaging with lower carbon footprint.
  • Less greenhouse gas emissions created and energy used during production.

Fast-Paced Institutional Filling and Dispensing

We design our bag-in-box products with fast-paced institutional environments in mind. While working closely with end-users, we create easy-to-use products that work with nearly any dispensing system on the market.

  • Sterile, closed-loop bag-and-fitment systems keep products safe from exposure.
  • Simple hoses and quick-connect systems for reliable, consistent dispensing.
  • Precise, controlled mixing for consistent quality.
  • Ability to fill and dispense low- or high-acid products from a single-fitment package.
  • Easy disconnection with less mess for dispenser cleaning protocols.

Pouch Packaging for Motor Oil

Increase your market appeal by offering motor oil in this highly-convenient packaging. Flexible spouted pouches are easy to reach into tight, awkward places inside engines, and are perfect for smaller amounts of motor oil for top-off or smaller engines, so consumers can purchase just what they need.

  • Ship smarter with compact, flexible, ecommerce-ready pouches.
  • Visibility of volume in a package that dispenses with less mess.
  • Typically lower carbon footprint than heavy, rigid alternatives.
  • Better product-to-package ratio than rigid formats like bottles and jugs.

Watch Flexible Packaging for Automotive Fluids in Action

Partnership for Change

Improving efficiency and decreasing waste are important to us. As a result of our partnership with the lubricants industry and a shared focus on sustainability, we have been able to reduce the environmental footprint of lubricant packaging. Source reduction and product waste reduction are key advantages of bag-in-box packaging. For example, with bag-in-box packaging for motor oil, you can reduce both your total energy and process greenhouse gas by up to 65%.

Our customers appreciate that our packaging allows for evacuation of nearly every drop of motor oil from our flexible packaging. Automotive fluids are protected from contamination in our bag-in-box and pouch products while also reducing hazards and costs. We place importance on increasing efficiency and safety for both consumer retail and automotive businesses.

Our Commitment to Sustainability

Scholle IPN Sustainability in Flexible Packaging iconIn response to the changes in our climate and environment, we take seriously our commitment to reducing the impact of packaging on our earth. With a focus on sustainable production, waste prevention, and creating recyclable packaging, we partner with industry leaders to incorporate sustainability into our everyday business.

Our sustainable packaging solutions allow products to be shipped without any secondary packaging. Less packaging means less in our landfills. Better evacuation means less wasted product. We believe that this is good for business, good for people, and good for the environment.

We are focused on reducing our customers’ carbon footprint, reducing waste, and reducing the materials needed to make and ship our products. Far less packaging is involved in the flexible packaging we produce than rigid containers like bottles and jugs. Our development engineers are constantly finding ways to create packaging that enables the circular economy.
