Can paper replace fantastic plastic?

We’re just a month and a half into 2018 and the packaging industry’s sustainability agenda has been firmly set for the forthcoming year – and indeed beyond.

Paper tigers

These are changing times for pulp and paper makers. While mill and machinery closures across Europe and the UK have resulted in shrinking capacity, particularly for graphical paper grades, this has been offset by a shift in manufacturing focus.

Timber regulations turn over a new leaf

That nothing even closely resembling the new EU Timber Regulations (EUTR) existed before they were launched in March, is kind of surprising. Most would probably have assumed that introducing illegally logged timber to the EU market had always been a criminal offence. But this wasn't the case.
