About Yangi AB

Yangi AB was established as a spin off company from The Loop Factory AB in January 2022, where the sustainable packaging technology has been developed as a project since 2014 with public and private funding. Grow AB’s Future Lab team has been a close strategic partner in the Yangi project since 2020 in developing the strategy, commercial concepts, and market collaborations.

Yangi Dry Forming Technology is an emerging technology to replace thermoformed rigid plastics in packaging at scale and offers brands a renewable & recyclable alternative at a low cost per unit and with a dramatic reduction of CO2 compared to plastics and other paper-based technologies, due to its low use of water and fast cycle times. The possibilities to free form and tailor Yangi to many high value and high volume applications and segments makes it very attractive from a commercial perspective.

Yangi has received recognition from NGOs and GOs such as; The Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the Horizon 2020 EIC Accelerator, Dieline Plastic Free Innovation Award, the Solar Impulse Foundation and the Swedish Energy Agency. Yangi is now ready for industrial scaling and are opening up for orders for the first systems in prioritised categories.

Digitalist Group estimates that the Arrangement will not affect its earlier guidance for the year 2022, according to which, in 2022, turnover and EBITDA are expected to improve in comparison with 2021.

According to company law legislation relating to related party transactions Digitalist Group’s board members Paul Ehrnrooth and Peter Eriksson have not participated in the decision making of arrangement.
