UPM Raflatac and UPM Biofuels will join forces to help their customers choose more sustainable packaging materials at Sustainability in Packaging Europe 2022 conference organized 1-4 November in Barcelona, Spain. Both companies have been developing their sustainable solution portfolios as part of UPM’s Biofore strategy that drives the company to innovate for A Future Beyond Fossils.
UPM Raflatac, a global supplier of innovative and sustainable labeling materials, will be showcasing the following sustainable solutions at the conference:
- The Ocean Action label, the company’s latest label material innovation made from ocean bound plastic
- UPM Raflatac Forest Film™, a film material replacing virgin fossil based material with renewable wood-based material
- Material Circularity Indicator (MCI) for Ocean Action label
- RafCycle™ recycling service
“We are excited to showcase our solutions for more sustainable packaging to our customers and industry colleagues. Our goal at UPM Raflatac is to help our customers to make the switch to more sustainable labeling solutions and close the loop by choosing materials and services that support packaging recycling and ensure the circularity and reuse of the packaging. We have great examples of these products and services showcased at the conference,” says Matilda Rosti, Director, Marketing, Films & Specials, UPM Raflatac.
UPM Biofuels, a producer of renewable and sustainable products for the transport and petrochemical companies, will showcase their UPM BioVerno naphtha and end-user products made from the UPM BioVerno at the conference. UPM BioVerno is a renewable naphtha produced from wood-based residue of pulp making and it can be used in variety of sustainable bioplastic end-use applications.
“Our renewable UPM BioVerno naphtha is used as a raw material for UPM Raflatac’s Forest Film material as well for Arla’s and Greatview’s bioplastic carton packaging. These showcased products are great examples of sustainable packaging leading the way beyond fossils,” says Juha Rainio, Director, Sales and Marketing, UPM Biofuels.
