Amcor has announced its investment of $3 million in PulPac, a Swedish company providing disruptive manufacturing technology for low-cost, high-performance fiber-based packaging.
PulPac is a pioneering, innovation-led company focused on developing its dry-molded fiber technology for use as a viable, sustainable option for the packaging industry. This solution uses raw materials readily found globally, manufactured using an innovative process that requires significantly less resources, which reduces CO2 emissions by 80%, compared to existing processes.
The alliance with PulPac and investment into its fiber technology also follow the launch of the AmFiber platform earlier this year, through which Amcor aims to redefine the capabilities of traditional paper packaging, and build upon Amcor’s extensive experience in paper and carton packaging.
Using PulPac’s dry-molded fiber technology, the shape of products can be optimized for a wide variety of applications, including some that have traditionally not been able to employ a viable sustainable option.
Amcor is engaged in multiple start-up investment opportunities, supporting their journeys through the sharing of expertise from Amcor’s own research and development teams, and exploring the potential for joint undertakings.
Amcor is a global leader in developing and producing responsible packaging solutions.
