Goal: Not only our Magaverde organic fiber paper should be sustainably produced and completely biodegradable, the printing inks and surface treatments used should be too. For this purpose, we have developed a joint project with partners from science and industry as part of the GRAVOmer network (www.gravomer.de). In this project, we are developing innovative ways and methods for sustainable printing and surface treatment that are suitable for industrial processing.
- In all finishing processes such as printing and surface treatment of the paper, the ecological harmlessness should be maintained, so that harmful influences on the environment are avoided if products made from it pass into the natural ruffles after use.
- New processing methods are intended to create high-quality optical, haptic and other property-enhancing effects, which significantly improve the variety of possible products and their intrinsic value, without impairing the original character of the sustainable bio-fiber paper.
- Together with the associated partners, demonstrators are to be created, i.e. products such as packaging and cardboard boxes, in order to check the practical suitability of the results of the development.
