Ahlstrom-Munksjö developed highly functional and sustainable wax alternative papers
Ahlstrom-Munksjö launches ParaFree™ Wax Alternative Papers, a new generation of eco-friendly food packaging papers, arming the quick service restaurant industry with a new fiber-based solution to meet the demanding sustainability needs of the food market.
As a global supplier of specialty paper products, Ahlstrom-Munksjö dedicates vast resources to continuously pursue sustainability initiatives. The launch of ParaFree™ Papers demonstrates Ahlstrom-Munksjö’s high level of commitment to creating eco-friendly products. ParaFree™ papers are paraffin wax free, reducing the dependency on petroleum-based ingredients. With the reduction of the wax, the basis weight of the end-use product is reduced, decreasing overall material use and having a positive environmental impact on the supply chain footprint. These products, primarily used in the food packaging and fast food industries, are built with recyclability and compostability in mind.
“Ahlstrom-Munksjö’s ParaFree™ Wax Alternative Papers provide significant performance and sustainability advantages”, commented Robyn Buss, Vice President Sales and Marketing, North America Specialty Solutions. “ParaFree™ Papers provide specially formulated solutions to our customers that make the end product easy on the environment and hardworking in their applications, enabling them to maintain high-level product performance while complying with emerging food safety regulations.”
