BRUSSELS, June 24, 2021 (PPI Europe) -Stora Enso has finished the installation of dispersion barrier technology at its Forshaga, Sweden, site and has begun production.
The improvement was carried out as part of the company’s Euro 10 million ($11.9 million) investment plan which was announced in 2020.
Products made with dispersion barrier technology have a lower carbon footprint, can be recycled easier and are compostable in industrial facilities.
“When striving towards a circular bioeconomy, new ways to create even better properties for paperboard packaging are needed. Completing the installation of dispersion technology in Forshaga is an important step in our innovation and sustainability agenda. By enabling industrial production of eco-friendly packaging materials, we can meet the increasing consumer demand for sustainable and circular packaging,” said Stora Enso executive vice president, packaging materials division Hannu Kasurinen.
