Sustainable Barriers for Formed Fibre Products

Stora Enso has entered into a strategic collaboration with HS Manufacturing Group (HSMG), a producer of plant-based barrier coatings, to develop their formed fibre offering. Stora Enso will leverage HSMG’s PROT?AN™ technology for food contact packaging applications. The technology offers a biodegradable and recyclable additive that gives fibre-based packaging water, grease and oil-resistant properties.

Stora Enso will apply the barrier technology to its renewable and recyclable PureFiber™ product offering to enable the manufacture of single-use products that are renewable, recyclable, biodegradable and plastic free.
