Mouldable fibre web

Mouldable fibre web

Consumers are increasingly appreciating materials that are of renewable source and recyclable. This desire can't be ignored especially by the industries where majority of the goods are packed into expensive multilayer synthetic plastics. A good example of this is food industry where the shelf life of the product is prolonged and product safety is ensured by utilising FFS (form-fill seal) packaging processes and MAP (modified atmosphere packaging) technologies. VTT has answered this request by developing a fibre based thermoplastic material for food packaging applications. Sustainable packaging, like fibre-based moulded product, not only meets the changing demands of more environmentally aware consumers and stringent requirements set by legislation but also enables long-term business growth. It will soon win the race for being the most desirable choice among the brand owners when seeking for new packaging solutions.
