Stora Enso introduces Cupforma Natura Solo, a renewable paperboard for paper cups. The innovative material is suitable for hot and cold drinking cups, as well as for ice cream packaging. It is produced without a traditional plastic coating layer and designed for full fibre recovery in a recycling process.
It works similarly to traditional polyethylene-lined cups, so no new converting technology is needed. In addition, this innovative material can increase the value of used cups in recycling, as the barrier breaks down in a recycling process, and all fibres can be utilized.
All Stora Enso Cupforma products are renewable and recyclable and provide a low-carbon alternative to non-renewable materials. A wide barrier selection for different demands is available, as well as support in selecting the best barrier for customers’ needs. In addition to Cupforma Natura Solo, the offering for cups includes the fully renewable Cupforma Natura PE Green, which provides an easy switch from fossil-based polyethylene, as well as the industrially compostable Cupforma Natura Bio.
