Next generation formed fiber solutions at Stora Enso

A new selection of formed fiber products, PureFiber™ by Stora Enso, has a significantly lower CO2 footprint compared to alternative solutions.

Stora Enso has built a new state of the art factory with production lines and related infrastructure to manufacture formed fiber products at Hylte Mill in Sweden. The formed fiber technology enables manufacturing of fiber based products that are designed for circularity, meaning that they are renewable, recyclable and biodegradable and do not contain any plastic.

At Runtech we have contributed to this interesting project by supplying separators and silencers to the vacuum system. Our scope has also included consultation and troubleshooting for the vacuum system.

The formed fiber investment further strengthens Stora Enso’s opportunity to replace fossil-based products and contribute to combatting the global problem of plastic waste. Potential products include single-use food packaging items such as plastic-free cups, bowls, clamshells, plates and coffee cup lids as well as non-food applications, responding to the needs of eco-conscious consumers looking for more environmentally friendly alternatives to plastic.
