Metsä Board presents circular economy solutions at the autumn packaging trade fairs

Fresh fibre paperboard is an excellent material for the circular economy. Metsä Board is the leading European producer of premium fresh fibre paperboards and part of Metsä Group. This autumn at major packaging trade fairs, Metsä Board will be presenting packaging solutions which support the vital circular economy and will be showing the potential of paperboard to replace fossil-based materials and reduce carbon footprint of packaging.

Metsä Board will be showcasing a wide range of packaging applications for its fully recyclable dispersion barrier board. The concept of sustainable lightweighting will be demonstrated based on folding boxboards and white kraftliners that enable resource efficiency and material reduction and lower the overall carbon footprint of packaging. Metsä Board will also be presenting its ongoing investment projects for growth to meet the increasing demand for sustainably produced paperboards.

The new Muoto® 3D fibre product is a significant new opening in the packaging market. The products are manufactured in a demo plant, which is jointly owned by Metsä Group’s innovation company Metsä Spring and Valmet. Made from renewable and sustainably grown wood raw material, Muoto® is an excellent alternative to plastics in many end uses. Metsä Spring representative will be available at Metsä Board’s stand at Luxe Pack to discuss the new product in more detail.

To foster innovation and accelerate the development of new packaging solutions Metsä Board will be highlighting its Excellence Centre and the co-creation workshop concept tailored to meet customer needs. With its recently launched 360 Services, Metsä Board can help its customers get the highest performance and resource efficiency out of lightweight paperboards throughout the packaging value chain, be it in terms of sustainability, packaging design, strength optimisation by simulation, converting, printing and much more.
