SharpCell launches a plastic- and fossil-free material for premium napkins, with OrganoClick’s biobased binder
SharpCell and OrganoClick have collaborated for more than 5 years in the development of the new airlaid material. OrganoClick’s biobased binder which replaces the fossil-based binder in the traditional material, is made of raw materials originating from side streams in the food industry from e.g. wheat, corn, lemons and shrimp shells.
“Our vision is to be at the leading edge of sustainability, and we are very happy with this collaboration together with OrganoClick,” says Pekka Pollari, CEO of SharpCell. “The best solutions are found in good co-operation with customers and partners. Through active product development we can come up with applications that fulfil even the most demanding requirements.”
SharpCell is an innovative airlaid nonwoven producer with ambitious sustainability goals. The material that has been developed have the potential to replace over 1,000 tons of fossil-based binder when fully implemented at SharpCell while keeping the soft hand-feel and textile-like look of an airlaid material. A 100 % fossil-free material is also in line with the Finnish government’s goal of becoming a fossil-free nation in 2035.
“We are very happy to accomplish this great milestone together with the SharpCell team. We look forward to continue the journey replacing plastics and make products green inside” says Mårten Hellberg, CEO at OrganoClick.
