In packaging, MFC brings advantages in source reduction, strength enhancement, lightweighting and renewable barrier materials. Due to its exceptionally high strength properties and 100% renewable raw materials, MFC is designed to outperform current fossil-based materials, such as plastics, in a variety of applications.
“There is a big pull in the market for fossil-free materials for the packaging industry. Plastics in the sea, global warming and mounting waste – these are all challenges and pressing consumer and industrial demand for better solutions. Additionally, major companies and brand owners have targets to reduce their environmental footprint. We are all on the same train here,” says Jukka Kankkunen, who works with the MFC Commercialisation, Consumer Board.
