Project PULPACKTION will develop cellulose-based packaging solutions for the specific demands of the food and electronic packaging industries, reducing dependence on non-renewable fossil fuel based plastics. This will be accomplished by the combination of improved cellulose pulps and bio-based polymers. The use of improved wet molded cellulose as the main packaging material will reduce the final package weight and increase its sustainability, providing a controlled shaped part. The package solution will help reduce the waste streams by substituting plastics with an eco-friendly bio-based solution with similar properties as plastics.
The project will last from 01.10.2016 to 30.09.2020, with 12 participants from different countries coordinated in Sweden. Total cost of the project is 11 166 442, 88€ with the EU contribution of 8 303 374, 05€.
