Let´s co-create the future

At Billerud 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

Tissue wrap

Billerud presents a machine glazed kraft paper especially adapted and validated for wrapping toilet and kitchen paper rolls. Hitting the sustainability sweet spot – renewable, recyclable and biodegradable, but also enduring tough handling as good as any PE plastic.

U-Bend straw

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.

FibreForm Caps

Billerud FibreForm Caps is an innovative alternative to the traditional metal caps used for sparkling wine around the world. It looks just as good as metal including embossing and excellent print quality, but is made of 100% recyclable and 100% biodegradable primary fibre paper from well-managed forests.

Moelven Wood and Billerud collaborate to develop a new packaging

We are joining forces with Moelven to examine the possibility of developing a new sustainable packaging solution for their interior panels. The goal is to create a paper-based solution to replace the current plastic shrink wrap. The collaboration stems from an innovation competition organized by Paper Province.

We are convinced that working together with other companies, universities and research institutes is the best way to tap into new thinking concerning improved packaging materials, solutions and a circular approach. One way to achieve this is the initiative Treesearch, a Swedish collaboration platform for fundamental research, knowledge and competence-building in the field of new and improved materials and speciality chemicals from forest raw material. The initiative involves the academic community, industry, private foundations and the Swedish government, with the aim of converting fundamental and pioneering research into hi-tech innovations to meet the challenges posed by climate change.
