This year, Kemira is hosting a series of webinars discussing the anatomy of sustainable packaging. Chemistry is an important, yet often invisible, enabler in the fiber-based value chain. In this first webinar of the series, we focus on hydrophobation of paper and board.
Our experts share their insights on the role of sizing in the globally growing packaging market and discuss how fiber-based packaging material manufacturers can reach liquid resistance and other functional properties for their products with sustainable solutions.
We introduce a novel highly functional and cost-effective internal sizing chemical that is based on renewable raw material. The maleated high oleic sunflower oil, MSOHO, is a new molecule developed for internal sizing. Replacing fossil-based olefin with vegetable oil as the raw material impacts the end-products’ environmental footprint and supports the packaging value chain in the pursuit toward more sustainable packaging.

Sunflower oil instead of fossil-based olefins – Kemira innovation in internal sizing chemistry helps paper and board producers increase the share of renewable raw materials in their production. Here are the most frequently asked questions about our novel renewable sizing chemistry, the sunflower ASA, and answers to them.
Environmental buzzwords are everywhere these days, dropped in front of a whole host of words in the newspapers we read, the products we buy, and the branding we’re exposed to. Renewable, recyclable, biodegradable, bio-based – what do the terms really mean and what’s the difference between them?
