Perfecting the picture:
how chemistry enables
renewable and recyclable packaging
Today, consumers and regulators expect brands to transform their vision of a sustainable future into reality by offering packaging solutions that are renewable, biodegradable, and circular. While innovative fiber-based packaging holds promise, there’s a vital element that is essential in making this picture a reality: Chemistry.
The unseen hero for molded fiber packaging
Molded fiber has quickly emerged as the favored packaging choice for brands pursuing renewable and recyclable alternatives – spanning diverse sectors from food and beverage to electronics, cosmetics, and e-commerce. Within this packaging revolution, chemistry plays a pivotal, but often unseen role. Without it, the creation of functional and sustainable cellulose-based molded packaging would not be possible.
For the new and innovative types of paper and board packaging
Consumers and regulators are demanding recyclability and sustainability from packaging that brands use. New and innovative types of paper and board packaging can offer solutions. With help from chemistry, paper and board packaging can be fully renewable, recyclable, and increasingly used also in demanding end-use applications.
