Stora Enso has launched Cupforma Natura Solo, a renewable paperboard for paper cups that is suitable for hot and cold drinks, as well as ice cream packaging.
The new innovative material is produced without a traditional plastic coating layer and is designed for full recovery in the recycling process.

Stora Enso has said it is committed to renewable and circular material solutions, which allow its customers to improve the environmental footprint of food service packaging.
The Cupforma products are renewable and recyclable and provide a low-carbon alternative to non-renewable materials.
In addition to the Cupforma Natura Solo, the offering for cups include the fully renewable Cupforma Natura PE Green, which provides an easy switch from fossil-based polyethylene, as well as the industrially compostable Cupforma Natura Bio.
Stora Ensure senior vice president, head of liquid packaging and carton board, consumer board division Hannu Kasurinen said: “We see strong demand for eco-friendly solutions in today’s food service packaging. Consumers demand convenience, but in a sustainable way. Recycling will reduce the carbon footprint of a paper cup by half, and the entire value chain benefits from innovations in renewable materials. Cupforma Natura Solo is yet another step on our journey to help customers reduce the use of plastics, and to drive the change towards more efficient recycling of food service packaging.”
