Norwegian beverage carton manufacturer Elopak has introduced an eco-friendly aseptic carton, Pure-Pak eSense, to add to its sustainable packaging range.

The carton was developed using technology from the company’s ‘fresh’ portfolio and is designed to protect products’ integrity and lifespan.

The fully recyclable carton does not include an aluminium layer, which reduces its carbon footprint by 28%.

Elopak chief marketing officer Patrick Verhelst said: “Today, brands and consumers are constantly looking for new ways to further reduce their environmental footprint without compromising on functionality.

“We are excited to add this latest innovation to our offering and provide our customers in the aseptic segment with an even more sustainable packaging solution.”

“This innovation has been made possible because of Elopak’s decades of experience, the determination and efforts of our technical experts, and our company-wide commitment to advancing sustainability.”

In addition to Pure-Pak eSense, Elopak is offering a modern version of its cap-free Pure-Pak carton for chilled beverages.

The fully forest-based Pure-Pak Imagine carton is made using 46% less plastic than the original Pure-Pak product.

Elopak is also planning to introduce a sustainable and convenient alternative for its plastic bottles.

In a separate development, Elopak has recorded a 4% decrease in second-quarter revenue to €242.1m ($284m) from €252.8m ($296m) a year earlier.

The company’s adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) also decreased slightly from €37.3m ($43m) in the second quarter of last year to €34.7m ($40m) in the same period of this year.

Elopak CEO Thomas Körmendi said: “Overall, we are pleased with the business performance in the second quarter of [this year], although our revenues were slightly below expectations.

“Business operations in all our plants continue to perform well, helping to partly offset the increased cost of raw materials.”
