The manufacturers of moulded fibre packaging are setting a good example
Development based on sustainability requires among other things the responsible utilization of available resources. Moulded fibre materials are particularly well suited here, because they are made from reproductive raw materials.
Their production is environmentally friendly and they can be easily disposed of after use. Thanks to properties such as its mouldability, stability, breathability and relatively good water resistance, moulded fibre is an innovative material which is continuously finding new areas of application.
Products made of moulded paper have been manufactured industrially for over 100 years. Today, moulded fibre packaging is used mainly in the food sector for packing eggs, fresh meat, fruit and vegetables. In addition to this, however, it is becoming increasingly more popular as a sturdy transport packing material for neon tubes, mobile phones, electric razors, wine bottles, cans, automotive parts etc.
A manufacturing process with a future
Moulded fibre products are made primarily from waste paper. In its ecological reports, Germany's Federal Environmental Protection Agency classifies waste paper as an environmentally friendly alternative in regard to water pollution, fresh water and energy consumption and its impact on the air and soil.
In addition to this, the use of waste paper takes a huge burden off the landfill sites and forests.
The production of moulded fibre packaging is subject to certified standards. Certificates of the EMFA member companies can be presented on demand.
