A recyclable wood fiber-based foam developed by Stora Enso. Designed to replace polymer-based foams in packaging solutions where formed or molded cushioning and protection is needed.
We are all familiar with the polyurethane (PU) foam used for cushioning in packaging. It performs well when it comes to protecting products. It’s made of raw fossil materials and used frequently in a variety of industries worldwide.
Thales Group is a French multinational company that designs and manufactures electrical systems and provides services to the aerospace, defense, transportation, and security industries. They are eager to find greener solutions and have set a sustainability goal of reducing their environmental footprint by 35% by the end of 2023. This made them a perfect match to pilot test Fibrease® instead of PU foam.
Fibrease’s® performance matches Thales’ demands and expectations but comes with lower carbon emissions
Helping them to further reduce their environmental footprint. Thales decided to switch to the new packaging solution that is also recyclable in the paper/board stream, which traditional foam solutions are not.
