Formation of “Blister Pack Collective” / Swedish group seeks to employ paper-based alternative to PVC
Swedish R&D company PulPac (Västra Frölunda; www.pulpac.com) has launched what it calls a Blister Pack Collective with professional services firm PA Consulting (London; www.paconsulting.com) to develop a recyclable and sustainable fibre alternative to PVC blister packs.

PulPac invented and developed the Dry Molded Fiber product, a fibre-forming manufacturing technology that uses renewable pulp and cellulose resources to produce low-cost, high-performance packaging and single-use products. The proprietary material process reportedly requires limited CO2 and almost no water to create highly versatile tablet arrays that match the design and tablet count of commodity PVC blister packs, which are single-use and not recyclable.

PA Consulting translated the shapes, functions, and features of current plastic blister packs into cellulose using PulPac’s technology. The fiber-based packaging said to be circular in paper streams. PA Consulting noted that it and PulPac have the proof of concept to demonstrate viability. The partners are seeking industry players to join the collective and accelerate product development.
