The PaperFoam material is sustainable, eco-friendly, low-carbon, highly recyclable and home compostable. The main ingredients (starch and fibres) are annually renewable and locally sourced. Together with lightweight properties and energy-efficient production, PaperFoam is one of the most environment-friendly packaging materials available.
PaperFoam material weighs about 24 ounces per gallon (180 grams per litre). This translates into possible weight reductions of 40% compared to traditional products.
The ingredients that make up PaperFoam find their origins in nature. One of the main ingredients (industrial starch) is extracted from potatoes and tapioca. Together with cellulose fibres, they form a mix that is certified biobased and environment- friendly.
