Beiersdorf has acquired an equity stake in Salford Valve Company Ltd. (Salvalco), a company specializing in creating aerosol valves for use with ecologically sustainable propellants.
Salvalco, which is based in the United Kingdom, has developed aerosol valve systems called Eco-Valve. This technology reportedly allows inert gases such as nitrogen or simple fresh air to be used as propellants in aerosol sprays, thus providing a more sustainable alternative to conventional aerosol propellants. Salvalco offers valve designs for a wide range of aerosol product solutions and applications.
Beiersdorf explained that the investment “further underlines its ambition in driving disruptive initiatives and innovations under its C.A.R.E.+ strategy and new sustainability agenda. The partnership will strengthen Beiersdorf’s footprint in sustainable packaging solutions. It also supports Salvalco’s further research and the commercialization of the patented Eco-Valve technology, aiming to jointly bolster its global outreach.”
