New Natura™ by Stora Enso is a liquid packaging board enhanced with micro-fibrillated cellulose (MFC) for extra strength and lower weight.
“Stora Enso has been a pioneer in the development of MFC for decades, and today we can tailor the fibres to fit for purpose. Our MFC makes the fibre mesh stronger, so we can reduce weight without compromising the stiffness, strength or other board properties that are vital for the packaging performance. This saves raw material and makes New Natura even more sustainable, renewable and recyclable raw material for beverage cartons,” says Aaltonen.
New Natura enhanced with MFC can be used for any gable top liquid packaging application: dairy products, juice, other beverages, soups and spices. It is available with PE or high-barrier coating, depending on the product packed and the barrier properties required to protect it.
