The objective of this project is to accelerate the uptake of highly functional, cost-effective packaging innovations, allowing immediate substitution of complex multilayer plastic packaging with high performing fiber-based materials. This will be accomplished by developing bio-based and fully recyclable fiber-based consumer packaging solutions. By doing so we can substitute existing complex multi-component plastics, while ensuring the same barrier properties and shelf life while limiting food and product waste. Generalized fiber-based packaging designs will be created for different categories of consumer products which are today packed in plastics, allowing brand owners to keep the promises set by their plastic strategies.
