Earlier this summer our Senior Artworker Lars Preiland attended an Open Lab event at the Danish Technological Institute on sustainable packaging. On the agenda was, among other things, plasma coated fibre material which is biodegradable and can be used for food packaging. An interesting material in packaging aspects, as these items can also be made from materials such as grass, straw and other residual fibres.

These fibres can be shaped in almost any form, and the surface may resemble even plastic or metal, while being biodegradable, water stable and even leak resistant. According to the Technological Institute, these molded pulp solutions are often stronger than corresponding plastic materials but with a lower weight and cost. So, these new materials could be an exciting way of working with sustainable packaging in the future.

The Technological Institute already works with Carlsberg and EcoXpac on developing fiber bottles for beer and water.
