Making the Packaging System Fit the Circular Economy

For the packaging industry to achieve a sustainable future, it needs to dramatically increase circularity and the reuse of materials. While shifting from a linear economy to a circular model will take time, there are already actions that brands, manufacturers, and converters can already take to help make a difference. This document by Siegwerk – a global leader in inks and coatings for packaging – delves into solving the plastic paradox, looks at the relevance of bioplastics, and sets out ways to not only achieve circularity in packaging but also make it economically viable. Furthermore, the document goes into detail on how printing inks and coatings are vital for enabling circularity in packaging. Ultimately, the packaging system needs to be reconfigured for a circular future. And consumers are expecting the packaging industry to play its part in progress. To take the first step towards circularity, download this document.

Named as PureFiber, the packaging is designed to replace plastic on-the-go food packaging. It is free from plastic and PFAS.

Additionally, the product line enables nearly 75% lower carbon footprint compared to plastic or bagasse packaging materials.

Stora Enso formed fibre senior vice-president Sohrab Kazemahvazi said: “Consumers are looking for products designed for more eco-friendly lives.

“They want to minimise waste and their carbon footprint and reduce their use of plastic.

“The formed fibre products we are bringing to market are game changing in the sense that they help strong brands achieve their ambitions in sustainability and the circular economy.”

Produced using natural wood fibres sourced from sustainably managed forests, Stora Enso manufactures the PureFiber products at its Hylte Mill in Sweden.

The company sells the products directly to brand owners and wholesalers.

Stora Enso plans to expand the PureFiber product range to other food and consumer goods applications.

Tingstad purchasing manager Johan Larsson said: “We strongly believe that PureFiber will play an important role in the market conversion from plastic to non-plastic food packaging.

“We are excited to bring a truly sustainable solution to the market together with Stora Enso.”

In January this year, Stora Enso and Finnish dairy product manufacturer Valio revealed plans to introduce wood fibre-based reusable lids made from a biocomposite.
