PulPac’s Dry Molded Fiber Phone Tray Insert is the latest addition to its Highway Products line, designed as a cost-effective and responsibly produced alternative to plastic or fibre-based packaging.

The Phone Tray Insert seeks to meet increasing demand for environmentally friendly packaging. Dry Molded Fiber aims to provide an affordable option with a reduced environmental footprint compared to conventional packaging materials.

PulPac’s Highway Products are designed as ‘quick-start’ solutions to help businesses transition into sustainability-minded packaging. It mostly covers food-grade products like cutlery, trays, bowls, lids for coffee cups and cold drinks, and the new Phone Tray Insert, with the range comprising standardized, commercially validated applications ready for production.

“We understand the importance of balancing sustainability with cost-effectiveness,” says Sanna Fager, chief commercial officer at PulPac. “This Phone Tray Insert shows manufacturers and brands a cost-competitive solution without compromising on their commitment to the planet – a hallmark of Dry Molded Fiber.

“Time is increasingly becoming the most important factor in dealing with environmental challenges. By creating a range of standardized, highly demanded products that are pre-validated, we can help our customers speed up the transition towards sustainable fiber-based packaging and a greener, cleaner world.”

Another recent development from PulPac comes in the form of the PulPac Scala. The new machine platform combines its Mill-to-Web fibre unit with injection moulding technology in the hopes of making Dry Molded Fiber more accessible across the world.

Meanwhile, Bayer has joined the Blister Pack Collective in pursuit of a blister pack made from fibre-based materials; and a formed fibre transportation tray for plants from Mester Grønn and Stora Enso aims to cut down on the CO2 emissions associated with plastic alternatives.
