Recycling

Corrugated packaging is a recycling champion, designed for circularity

  • Corrugated packaging is collected and recycled all over Europe.
  • Paper and board packaging has a very high recycling rate, on average over 80%*
  • We design for circularity, for example by designing out waste and designing for functionality and recyclability. Read more about circular bioeconomy
  • Fibers can be recycled 7-9 times, and in some cases even more. Recycled fibers are used to make new corrugated packaging. Read more about recycling

Is a climate friendly alternative to fossil plastic

  • Regulatory changes, for example the European Union ban on single use plastic items increases the need for more eco-friendly and circular solutions.
  • To prove the benefits of corrugated solutions compared to alternatives, we carry out Life-Cycle Analysis (LCA) as a sustainability service
  • A Life-Cycle Analysis analyses the selected life cycle stages of a material, product, or service, revealing its potential environmental or human health impacts. They can be used when designing a new product or evaluating an exisisting one.
  • Our LCA study performed on EcoFishBox, shows that it achieves at least 40% lower emissions compared to EPS boxes regarding greenhouse gas emissions.
