1. Sora Enso, first paperboard tube with fibre-based closure
Stora Enso, Blue Ocean Closures and AISA have developed the first paperboard tube with a fibre-based closure.
All components of the tube are designed for recycling.
The tube is composed of Stora Enso’s barrier-coated board material Natura Shape, as well as a screw cap, designed in collaboration with Blue Ocean Closures with assembly by AISA.
The solution contains more than 85% fibre content, the highest proportion available in a tube design.
It is expected to be commercially available for cosmetic and personal care companies in 2024.
