Paccor to expand its portfolio with fiber products
publié le lundi 28 février 2022
Paccor is expanding our portfolio with a new range of molded fiber products, packaging made of wood fibers. The renewable, recyclable, and biodegradable or compostable raw material is readily available globally.
The technology offered by Paccor and its production in Europe reduce CO2 emissions and support efforts to reduce oil dependence. The medium-term goal is to enable fiber-molded packaging with the desired functional properties, such as maximum freedom of design, fast production throughput, high strength and permanent resistance to water and grease. “Studies show that rPET and fiber tray solutions have an equally low Global Warming Potential (GWP). While rPET trays, when recycled, are better than the wet fiber alternative from a holistic environmental footprint perspective, primarily because of the lower weight needed to perform the same function, we should keep in mind that fiber technology is still in its infancy and further improvements in its environmental performance can be expected, » underlines Andreas Schütte, CEO of Paccor. « We are pleased to have signed the first customer contracts. Demand for these sustainable products is very high, » adds Nicolas Lorenz, Paccor’s Chief Commercial Officer. « Formed fiber offers our customers a high degree of design freedom and many decoration options, » he says.
