Mondi Scores a Hat Trick at Austrian Green Packaging Star Awards
Awards recognize sustainable packaging innovations
(PRESS RELEASE) SURREY, UK — Packaging manufacturer Mondi won three awards for sustainable packaging at the Austrian Green Packaging Star Awards.
The annual Green Packaging Star Awards recognize environmentally friendly packaging and recycling solutions, as well as packaging-related improvements in operational processes in production, logistics and distribution. The awards are presented by Kompack magazine and the Austrian Research Institute for Chemistry and Technology.
In partnering with Tesco, Mondi recycles the retailer’s existing corrugated packaging waste and transforms it into EcoVantage paper. By working alongside its converters’ network, shopping bags are produced that are used by Tesco’s customers. This partnership helps the retailer work toward its net-zero emission goal, using recycled and fresh fibers that deliver a recyclable yet durable shopping bag.
Working with Bell Germany, Mondi created packaging for the meat producer’s “Abraham” range of sliced deli meats. WalletPack Recyclable is a mono-material solution that helps prevent food waste and has been verified by the German institute cyclos-HTP as 93 percent recyclable. The folded approach keeps the deli meats fresh and easy to access, reducing the amount of material required for production by 37 percent. Launched in early 2021, it is estimated save 35 tons of plastic waste per year for Bell Germany.Advertisement
Functional Barrier Paper
Mondi’s barrier-coated functional papers aim to change packaging for a variety of products, including food and toys. An ideal replacement for plastic laminates, the barrier papers can be used for dry food, frozen food, secondary packaging and flow-pack applications. Fully recyclable in most existing paper streams, they protect against grease and water vapor, and can run on existing form-fill-and-seal (FFS) lines.
“We are committed to taking action on climate and creating circular-driven solutions,” Peter Orisich, CEO, flexible packaging and engineered materials, Mondi. “With our action plan, MAP2030, we have set out our ambitious sustainability commitments and targets for the next 10 years. We are delighted that these products have been recognized by the Kompack Green Packaging Star awards for their sustainability credentials.”
