Repulping properties are key to fiber-based material recyclability and help enable circularity through effective raw material reuse. New dispersion barrier solutions help replace poorly recyclable extrusion coatings and laminate structures in packaging but bring new challenges for the packaging and board producers.

In this webinar, our experts discuss the development of recyclable packaging materials by sharing the findings of recent research on dispersion barrier coatings, their repulping properties, and the repulped material reuse.

You will learn:

  • why repulpability is a crucial characteristic for recyclable fiber-based packaging
  • how different commercially available barrier coated boards behave in the repulping process
  • what happens after repulping: the usability of the repulped material in board making
  • how to ensure machine runnability and wastewater quality when using barrier coated broke

Join us for a 45-minute live webinar discussion on Wednesday, December 8 at 2 p.m. CET / 8 am EST to get a holistic view into dispersion barrier coated boards and overcoming related challenges in the paper mill.

At the end of the discussion, there’s time reserved for your questions.

You should attend this webinar if you want to increase your understanding of the repulpability of dispersion barrier coated boards and learn how to overcome related challenges in the board manufacturing process.
