Published May 2022 | 110 pages, 22 tables, 57 figures | Download Table of contents

Growing global demand for sustainable packaging solutions based on renewable, recyclable/ biodegradable materials has greatly renewed industry activity and interest in molded fiber/pulp packaging.

Molded fiber/pulp products are attractive due to their green/sustainable advantages, as the raw materials used are renewable and biodegradable lignocellulosic fibers (including recycled paper, newsprint, cardboard and other natural planted fibers). Technological developments in molded fiber/pulp materials are resulting in higher quality packaging products and replacement of conventional plastic products for the various packaging purposes. This is largely driven by government regulations as well as customer demands for plastic alternatives.  

Molded fiber packaging is increasingly used in primary and secondary packaging as an alternative to plastics in handling and packaging of products from food containers to packaging of household items, industrial supplies, electronics to single-use medical service items to provide protection in shipments, customer convenience, and other economic packaging and environmental benefits. Molded pulp products can replace plastic products including food containers and tableware, electronic product packaging, compostable containers for agricultural seedlings, medical and health products, building materials and furniture.
