AR Packaging and PulPac expand partnership
AR Packaging is investing in access to this platform to spearhead sample production and bridging capacity for market ready applications
AR Packaging and PulPac expand partnership and bridge volume capacity to fast-track truly sustainable and affordable fiber products to market using revealed PulPac PU300 production platform.
The expanded partnership will combine AR Packaging’s vast reach, converting expertise and resources with the Dry Molded Fiber process to further accelerate commercialization of sustainable fiber products to the market globally.
PulPac’s “Dry Molded Fiber” is a patented manufacturing technology using renewable pulp and cellulose resources to produce low cost, high performance, fiber-based packaging, and single-use products. Dry Molded Fiber gives up to 80-90% lower CO2 footprint at the same or lower cost as plastic and is up to ten times as efficient as conventional fiber molding invented over 100 years ago. It also eliminates the need for valuable water resources in the defibration process.
AR Packaging will fast-track Dry Molded Fiber opportunities with leading brands and products looking for sustainable cost effective solutions in the packaging and food service industries.
“We are proud to call ourselves an early adopter in Dry Molded Fiber and member of the PulPac Technology Pool given its unique blend of sustainability, global scalability and cost efficiency. Consumers and the industry alike are seeking a shift to fiber wherever possible. Therefore, we are investing substantially in efforts where our deep experience in Dry Molded Fiber and access to this breakthrough technology can offer brands a much faster path to market,” said Ralf Mack, Group Innovation Director at AR Packaging in a statement.
PulPac’s advancements and constant development in Dry Molded Fiber continuously opens new opportunities and improves cost effectiveness of the process. PulPac has extended partnerships, developing solutions for scaling production lines and supply chain.
“We see that AR Packaging’s leadership in innovation will empower the Dry Molded Fiber community and the entire market, building on the success of the technology pool and global introduction of a truly breakthrough technology that can significantly support sustainability and commercial goals across packaging and QSR-products,“ said Linus Larsson, founder and CEO PulPac.
