PAPACKS, a Germany-based packaging company, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with industrial hemp company element6 Dynamics to expand its moulded and thermal-formed packaging in the US. 

The companies will create a joint venture (JV), under which they plan to build ten fully integrated moulded and thermal-formed production plants across the country.  

The terms of the MoU have not been disclosed, but the JV aims to provide regenerative alternative fibre packaging solutions to consumer-packaged goods, pharmaceutical, technology, and general companies. 

The partners will also focus on decarbonisation and reducing plastic use and deforestation across supply chains. 

The aforementioned new facilities will be strategically located near element6 Dynamics’ cultivation footprint and academic partnerships, promoting a bioregional approach to ensure cost-effective and environmentally friendly solutions. 

PAPACKS CEO Tahsin Dag said: “We believe that element6 Dynamics will be a strong financial and strategic partner for us in the United States.
