Come and hear Mia Ahokas presenting our sustainable and safe food packaging with biodegradable water based barrier coating solutions at Specialty Papers Europe 2019 in Berlin 9.-10.4.2019.
The European Union parliament just passed a vote on banning a wide-range of single-use plastic items by 2021. Also companies who produce single-use food containers will have to look for less polluting alternatives for these products. Nevertheless, it is above all the consumer who is making new demands on food packaging. More and more households are encouraging the food industry to rethink and to focus on safe and sustainable solutions.
In recent years, considerable amount of work and effort has been put into the replacement of fossil based plastic materials with more environmentally friendly either recyclable and biodegradable materials or both such as Water Based Barrier Coatings (WBBC). We have developed a product family, CHP BAR series, for replacing PE, wax and fluorocarbon in food packaging.
