Michelman: Sustainable Packaging Innovations & Awards

Michelman has announced its recent wins of two awards: The Sustainability Awards by Packaging Europe and the FEDIL Environment Prize. These accolades highlight Michelman's commitment to sustainable packaging and its successful collaboration with Bobst and UPM Specialty Papers in the oneBARRIER FibreCycle project.

Michelman's oneBARRIER FibreCycle solution was a winner in the Pre-Commercialized Recyclable Packaging category at the 2023 Sustainability Awards. This global competition, organized by Packaging Europe, focuses on identifying and promoting sustainable packaging innovations. The awards encourage a comprehensive approach to sustainable development, emphasizing holistic impacts and transparency.

Thierry Van Migem, Michelman’s sales director, EMEA, comments, “Michelman will continue pushing boundaries via strong value chain collaborations with expert partners such as BOBST and UPM Specialty Papers.”

Michelman's oneBARRIER FibreCycle also won exclusively in the Product category of the FEDIL Environment Prize. This prestigious award, presented by Luxembourg-based FEDIL, recognizes companies' efforts to harmonize productivity with environmental conservation.

Paul Griffith, Michelman’s CMO and EVP, EMEA, Agriculture and Printing & Packaging, remarked, “It is extraordinarily gratifying to activate our purpose of Innovating a Sustainable Future by working with like-minded industry leaders to develop environmentally friendly packaging solutions.”

These awards are a direct result of the collective effort of Michelman Associates and their close collaboration with Bobst and UPM Specialty Papers. The oneBARRIER FibreCycle project represents a significant stride in sustainable packaging, offering a high-barrier, paper-based alternative to plastic-based flexible packaging.

oneBARRIER FibreCycle is a recycle-ready, high-barrier, paper-based alternative to plastic-based flexible packaging. The coating system, designed by Michelman, provides enhanced oxygen, aroma, moisture, and mineral oil barriers; oil & grease resistance; an airtight heat seal; and print receptivity at low coat weight while simultaneously enabling metallization.
