A milestone in sustainable packaging

Sappi deploys innovative barrier paper technology to scale up production
Sappi is to introduce a new barrier coating technology for functional paper packaging at its speciality paper mill in Alfeld, Germany, strengthening its position as a global leader in sustainable paper packaging solutions. Explaining the decision, Berry Wiersum, CEO Sappi Europe, said: "Expanding the use of our proprietary barrier coating technology underpins Sappi's leading position in the Functional Paper Packaging product group. It also anchors the commitment with our customers regarding the development of innovative forward-looking packaging solutions that contribute to a sustainable future."

Where performance meets environmental responsibility
Demand for paper and board packaging continues to grow tremendously as consumers become increasingly aware of the environmental impact of their purchasing decisions. The call for innovative, truly sustainable solutions has never been louder. Sappi is committed to helping its customers move beyond traditional film and foil-based material solutions. By expanding its product range, the company also aims to meet the demands of our ever-changing world. Working directly with brand owners, Sappi strives to create forward-looking circular solutions that are in line with growing collective global responsibility.
The desire to constantly evolve to meet and exceed business needs requires continuous investment in innovation to create the solutions of tomorrow. With the acquisition of Rockwell Solutions, Sappi was able to deepen its knowledge of barrier paper manufacturing. The expansion of the barrier coating capacity at the Alfeld plant brings an additional boost to performance. In addition, this unique combination of paper, dispersion and coating technology allows the company to reach more customers and offer them even more competitive and attractive paper packaging solutions.
Sappi has made great efforts to provide forward-looking products and services that meet and exceed consumer needs now and in the future - delivering recyclable packaging solutions that fully meet the requirements of a circular economy. Environmental responsibility is a key concern for both Sappi and its customers. Through this initiative, Sappi will continue to challenge the conventional packaging industry with new ideas and solutions, thus making its contribution to the world and pursuing the circular economy strategy.
We expect to be able to supply the new products from mid-2022, once the new plant is commissioned.
