Stora Enso accelerates growth in Renewable Materials by co-operating with the startup Sulapac

Published 20 June 2018
Stora Enso and Sulapac have signed a joint development agreement to combat the global problem of plastic waste by accelerating the use of fully renewable, recyclable and biodegradable materials in packaging.

Through the joint development agreement, Stora Enso will licence Sulapac’s materials and technology, and begin the development of fully renewable caps and closures for liquid packages. Other areas for joint development work include food packages and packages for consumer electronics.

The cooperation between the companies began in 2017 through Stora Enso’s Accelerator programme, which involves partnering with Aalto University and start-ups to ideate and innovate around renewable products. Stora Enso is the first customer to use Sulapac’s material and technology license.
