Let´s co-create the future

At BillerudKorsnäs we are challenging conventional packaging
for a sustainable future. But not just by keeping to ourselves.
We are convinced that working together with other companies, research institutes and partners is the best way to new thinking for better packaging materials, solutions and a circular approach.

That is why we are joining forces with the world's leading experts
on technology, design, brand and more to break new ground. Driven by our curiosity, we believe that change starts with finding
new perspectives and asking questions: What if fibre-based solutions could reduce plastics in our oceans? And what if smart product features could enable packaging beyond imagination?

By co-creating the future of packaging, we open new doors and
help improve everyday life. Welcome to join us on our journey.

Innovation Projects

The Paper Bottle

A paper bottle in every hand – that’s what the future holds if the paper bottle project succeeds. Our collaboration with Paboco, the paper bottle company, an innovation spearhead initiative launched in 2019 with a sole purpose – to continue and fulfill the making of a paper bottle with the potential to change an entire industry and improve everyday life. As a project collaborator, BillerudKorsnäs is one of several world-leading players sharing our joint expertise in materials, barriers, design and technology. Working closely together with the Paboco community of pioneering brand owners, our shared vision is to create the world's first 100 percent recyclable paper bottle for liquid content and even carbonated beverages

The Paper Battery

What if paper could be used as electrodes to store electric energy? Soon this will be possible through the BillerudKorsnäs paper battery. The development of the Battery is a story of innovation and collaboration where grams of specially cellulose invented by Uppsala University has turned to a product in paper mill scale. The future will also be one of collaboration where the electrode concept will be developed forward together with partners in battery technology and end-users in energy storage.

2020

A 180° bendable paper straw for drink packaging that are strong, last long without dissolving, and which are bendable without breaking – that is something the world has been waiting for. The U-Bend straw is a patented solution and environmentally friendly alternative to plastic straws. This is a user-friendly alternative for your everyday drinks. The end users will be consumers buying individual drink cartons filled with juice, milk or water. The U-Bend straw has been developed in partnership with the Paper Straw Co.

2020

Challenge your eco-footprint

Sadly, a good amount of the things we throw away aren’t naturally compostable, and should never be treated as such.
