Smurfit Kappa was approached by Patani Global Food B.V., a global supplier of fresh and frozen foods including vegetables, meat and fish and non-food products for the catering industry. Patani Global Food B.V. ships goods from Amsterdam to worldwide locations including to the Antilles Islands in the Caribbean using EPS boxes. However, a rise in the amount of litter that was washing up on the idyllic beaches in the region had led to a future ban on plastic waste so the company wanted an alternative solution that would not harm the environment. While the majority of existing temperature-controlled food packaging solutions depend on using EPS due to its insulation properties, Smurfit Kappa’s new Thermo Box is 100% recyclable. The pack also offers greater flexibility than EPS as it can be stored flat therefore reducing warehouse costs, different sizes can be easily created and the corrugated exterior offers good branding opportunities. The product is the latest addition to Smurfit Kappa’s Better Planet Packaging portfolio of products, many of which are popular substitutions for single-use plastic. Launched in 2018, Smurfit Kappa’s Better Planet Packaging initiative seeks to reduce packaging waste through design, research and development and industry expertise. Patrick Oostveen, Managing Director at Patani Global Food B.V. said: “Smurfit Kappa undertook an analysis of our supply chain to grasp all the challenges and complexities. We did a series of temperature tests to compare the new pack with the EPS box and the results showed that the Thermo Box is a really excellent product that more than fits the brief. The average temperature was even kept lower for a longer time than when using the EPS boxes.” Arco Berkenbosch, Smurfit Kappa VP of Innovation & Development, added: "This project was the result of a successful collaborative process between Smurfit Kappa and Patani Global Food B.V. Our starting point, as always, was to see how we could provide a completely biodegradable product that would not compromise on any of the required functionality. “The paper-based Better Planet Packaging solution we came up with draws strength from its corrugated and honeycomb capabilities and offers significant potential for both fresh and frozen goods and, indeed, the eCommerce sector.”

We made a capsule collection using grocery shopping bags – our intention was reuse plastic stuff in a different way. ‘On the other hand, we wanted to bring the craftsmanship leather goods details into everyday objects.’ Some of their best creations include a quilted cross-body bag made out of an Oreo wrapper, a handbag created from a Heineken cardboard box and a shoulder bag made with an Amazon Prime shipping package.

Both uncoated and coated paper can be used for producing bags with two glued or sewn sides plus a top overlap. When using film, the patented tight bag packaging ensures there is a minimum excess with only as much film being used as is needed. Timo Kollmann, sales director at Hugo Beck, said: “Whether dealing with the direct dispatch of individual goods, packing groups of products or meeting the complex requirements of returned goods packaging; the PB 800 E-Com hybrid solution ensures companies are perfectly equipped to meet the needs of e-commerce packaging.” Alongside the PB 800 E-Com, and for those who are looking to pack only with film, the new flexo 600 E-Com machine packs e-commerce goods to the highest standards, minimising film use and maximising results both with and without shrinking of the film bags. Designed to process products with a width of up to 600 mm and a height of 300 mm, a quick changeover adjusts between product batches or, as an option, the machine can automatically adapt to changes in a product’s length, height or width. Speed and flexibility are key to the design of both machines, with up to 1500 cycles per hour available. The PB 800 E-Com can handle paper gauges of 80 – 130 g/m² and both machines can handle film thicknesses of between 30-100 μm. Connectable to customer’s ERP or control systems both machines can also be easily integrated within a production line. Additional options include the ability to add an easy-opening perforation to the packaging as well as inserting a double-sided adhesive tape for resealing a bag for returns. An integrated scanner with a controller for product detection and creation of a shipping label can also be included on the line for additional capability. Timo Kollmann concluded: “The e-commerce sector demands a wide variety of packaging styles. This, alongside the need to wrap a wide range of products quickly, flexibly and sustainably, means that our new machines are ideal for delivering perfect packaging results at high speeds and across a choice of paper or packaging substrates.”
The innovative new boiler will enable the plant to further boost energy optimisation at the mill. By recovering energy from the biomass contained in black liquor from pulp production, the new boiler is set to cut CO2 emissions by 40,000 tonnes, which equates to about two-thirds of the current emissions at the site, and 2.4% of those from Smurfit Kappa Europe. The Future Energy Plant also involved developing an advanced new steam turbine, as well as several other projects including an upgraded water treatment plant and installation of additional drying cylinders to the paper machine. Speaking about the mill’s latest milestone, Günter Hochrathner, CEO of Smurfit Kappa Nettingsdorf, said: “I am very proud to get to this day in such a huge and ambitious project and it’s a great moment for all our employees here. By starting to operate this new recovery boiler, we have taken a very important step forward in sustainability and are practising true circularity.” Laurent Sellier, COO Smurfit Kappa Paper & Board, Europe, added: "The Future Energy Plant project was part of an ongoing investment programme by the Smurfit Kappa Group to implement a series of transformative sustainable innovations. Efficient energy plants play a major role in the production of paper. “This investment in Nettingsdorf will enable us to ensure a long-term supply of high-quality and sustainable containerboard - something our customers have come to expect from us.” Founded in 1851 and with over 360 employees, Nettingsdorf is one of Smurfit Kappa’s most efficient paper mills and one of the leading producers of kraftliner in Europe.
