Wood offers green packaging solutions

A Norwegian company that supplies billions of food cartons globally is replacing the fossil-based polyethylene used in its product with a wood-based solution.

Elopak has joined for forces with UPM Biofuels, which produces a wood-based raw material called naphtha at its Finnish biorefinery, and materials science giant, Dow, to bring ‘100% renewable cartons that are both recyclable and responsibly sourced’ to market.

“Every tonne of UPM’s wood-based naphtha that Dow converts into bioplastics reduces one tonne of fossil raw materials used,” said Sari Mannonen, Vice President, UPM Biofuels.
