Bio coatings

The bio coating is based on renewable resources and adapted for organic recovery through composting or anaerobic digestion. Combined with a selected number of Invercote grades, the material is suitable for packaging applications where biodegradability is desired.

Both the baseboard and the coating conforms to the European Norm regarding compostability, EN 13432. The product also works well in existing packaging recycling systems.

An environmental choice of material

When the Swedish retail chain Coop decided to create new packaging for its own-brand frozen berries, it deliberately chose a higher-priced base material for environmental reasons.

Coop selected the paperboard material Invercote Bio, a virgin-fibre-based board coated with bioplastic.

Sustainability the Invercote way

Invercote is a world leader in paperboard performance. What is less well known is that the same is true for sustainability.

One of the most important prerequisites for sustainability is profitability, because without it there are no resources to invest in improving environmental performance.
