The LUXE PACK in green awards took place on the second day of luxury packaging trade show LUXE PACK Monaco. We highlight this year's winners.
Arjowiggins was crowned the winner in the product innovation category with Sylvicta, its translucent barrier paper. The 100% cellulose solution is food-grade compatible, and has high oxygen, aroma and oil and grease barrier properties; its oxygen barrier is said to be 50 times that of PET. In addition to applications in the food sector, Sylvicta can be used for skincare products, both solid and liquid. Ranging in thickness from 40gsm to 180gsm, the “secret”, Arjowiggins told the jury, is in the way the cellulose fibers are processed.
French varnish specialist Altus Coating won over the jury in the CSR category for its global CSR approach. The company has a staff of just 15, with one person devoted to CSR initiatives full-time. In 2019, Altus Coating created its in-house charter for developing more sustainable solutions and by 2021, more than 40% of the company’s projects were done in accordance with at least one criterion of the charter:
- Products with a maximum of 10% volatile organic compounds
- Products with at least 10% bio-based substances
- Products that can be dried under LED lamps
