VTT has developed a 100% bio-based, recyclable solution to replace non-renewable cushioning materials.

Fibre foam enables light-weight structures from wood pulp. As the air bubbles leave the space in the structure, it creates a very thick and porous structures from renewable and recyclable wood. Fibre foam cushioning can be recycled like milk cartons nowadays.

Key learning objectives

  • See demonstration of light-weight bio-based cushioning
  • Patent landscape - Learn who is active in the field
  • Hear the benefits and limitations of bio-based cushioning materials
  • Take a 360 degree tour of our pilot facilities
