Sustainable pack award for VTTThe winning pack is a three-layer
structure of cellulose each with different properties, said to be ideal for dry food packaging applications. The solution has also won the competition run by Ellen MacArthur Foundation, with the prize of a one-year accelerator programme, and the Ecopack Challenge award, which earned VTT the opportunity to cooperate with Marks & Spencer.
The Ellen MacArthur accelerator programme is progressing, says VTT research scientist Anna Tenhunen.
“We are speeding up development of the material,” she explains. “Our work focuses at the moment on the
recyclability of the material and on upscaling.”
