News #21 | LCA analysis of Celluwiz materials

#LifeCycleAnalysis #MFCwetlamination #Chromatogeny

ITENE is working on the life cycle analysis (LCA) of the packaging solutions developed in the framework of the CelluWiz project to demonstrate their environmental benefits compared to those available on the market.

What are its benefits?

This packaging material has been developed with cellulose and is fully recyclable and compostable. Plus, it has similar characteristics to existing solutions on the market.
