A Newmarket company is just weeks away from finalizing a prototype for an eco-friendly and inexpensive pulp paper face mask that filters more than 90 per cent of airborne particles, including the new coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

With a $300,000 boost from the federal government’s NRCan IFIT Program, local pulp products manufacturer Pulp Moulded Products, in partnership with Kruger Inc., a leading pulp and paper company with a focus on sustainability, have been tasked with creating a made-in-Canada, non-surgical and effective antiviral mask that is as easy on the pocketbook as it is on the environment.
