Functional barrier paper and the move to sustainable paper-based packaging
The packaging industry is experiencing a growing trend for paperisation, an increasing share of paper packaging in the material mix. Paper also proves popular with consumers. But the shift toward paper packaging comes with its own set of challenges.
With a combined experience of more than 25 years in the film and release liner industry and more than five years of experience in paper packaging, our two experts Maria Ley and Thomas Lunz from Mondi bring the necessary expertise for the background, basic knowledge and application areas of recyclable functional barrier papers.
They will discuss Mondi's functional barrier paper and its capabilities to replace plastic packaging, and explore challenges that converters face around functional papers, and how to address them. They will look at topics such as recyclability, food safety, and papers for high, mid and low barrier products.
