FLIA 2018 in focus: Scheufelen Grass Paper

Related Articles

Scheufelen Grass Paper/Greenliner, from Papierfabrik Scheufelen in Germany, is ecological packaging material made of up to 50 per cent fresh grass fibre.

The fully recyclable and biodegradable corrugated base paper can be used for corrugated and liner layers.

Using grass fibre as a sustainable raw material, energy and water consumption can be drastically reduced – traditional pulp fibre requires 30,000 litres of water per tonne compared with zero litres for grass fibre production.

Pulp also consumes 6,000 kW/h of energy per tonne with only 150 kW/h for grass fibre, while grass is also more sustainable, growing again more quickly after cutting.
