In addition to LUT and VTT we have a wide network of both Finnish and international companies. Results of the research project could revolutionize the markets of renewable and sustainable packaging materials. VTT researches and develops the properties of the cellulose film. LUT University, in turn, verifies packaging performance, tailors the converting process, equipment, and tooling, and examines the value chain of the new product.


Project period:

Project funding:
Co-funded by the European Union, Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council, Regional Council of South Karelia, VTT and LUT University.



The goal is to optimize the film properties and functionality to enable novel high value applications. Food protection is naturally the top priority, but we also develop large scale production processes in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner.
