Danapak Flexibles is offering a new environmentally paperbased bottomweb, DanaFibre, which can be formed to trays in different sizes and shapes.

The new tray material is based on Fibre-Form from BillerudKorsnäs.

A lifecycle analysis made by RISE (Research Institute of Sweden) in 2019, showed the FibreForm based material is a sustainable solution with up to 71% less CO2​ emissions compared with the conventional trays, that are used today for products including cheese.

DanaFibre is a paperbased laminate with barrier properties made by 80% renewable materials,

which can be recycled after use. Studies show a typical size DanaFibre tray weigh less than a polypropylene or APET tray, and end-of life studies show 80% of the bottomweb can be recycled.

Danapak said results of a life cycle analysis show a DanaFibre tray emits 70% less CO2​ compared with a typical tray made by APET/PE.

The company said DanaFibre contributes to sustainability with considerably less global warming impact than the most commonly-used plastic trays.

The new DanaFibre bottomweb to trays can be designed and printed with the latest HD Hydro or UV Flexo Technology under strict hygienic conditions, which meet all the requirements of the food industry, the company said.
