A&R Carton launches new small-sized sustainable Boardio composite cans

Press Release: A&R Packaging

A&R Carton is providing Boardio composite cans in new sizes, which includes fiber content of 90%

For obvious reasons, maximized fiber content and recyclability are high on the agenda for companies in the packaging sector. The Boardio composite can from Sweden’s A&R Carton – billed as a replacement for smaller full-plastic containers – features fiber content of up to 90%, hence substantially minimizing the use of fossil-based plastics.

The company believes these consumer-convenient cans are ideal for nutritional supplements, snacks, chewing gums, powders, etc, without compromising product safety and protection. “Our new Boardio packaging has attracted lots of interest with its clear environmental profile,” confirmed Johan Werme, sales director for the Performance Packaging segment. “Its flexibility in shape and size makes it ideal for a wide range of food and non-food products. The new smaller sizes are a sustainable alternative to full-plastic containers and can therefore support brand owners to reach their set targets on environmental footprint reduction.”

“The high ratio of renewable fiber-based material and minimized use of plastics make Boardio recyclable in a similar way to all carton-based liquid containers,” Werme added. “Currently the fibers are recycled and used for new products while the minimized plastic part is energy-recycled. Intense development and investments are ongoing both in Europe and globally that will make the small plastic part recyclable into new products in the near future.”

Further optimization of the environmental profile of the Boardio packaging is ongoing and a targeted introduction of bio-based plastic will increase the renewable part to more than 95% with maintained pack integrity.
