Blue Couch conversation provides information about the switch from plastic to paper

Packaging and specialty paper manufacturer Sappi and packaging machine manufacturer Rovema – two internationally acknowledged frontrunners in sustainability – have joined forces in a strategic partnership to offer customers reliable, sustainable packaging solutions. Find out how the conversion to paper-based solutions can be achieved efficiently and reliably in the upcoming episode “Functional paper packaging – cooperation leads to perfect packaging” of the Blue Couch Series on 21 September 2021 at 10 a.m. (CET) at

Sustainable packaging is about much more than simply the packaging materials used. It also considers the technology that is deployed to process them. Since 2018, Sappi and Rovema have been collaborating as partners in the development of integrated packaging solutions as a complete package for forward-looking customers who wish to position themselves sustainably in the market.

René Köhler, Director Paper & Packaging Solutions at Sappi Europe, knows just how important the precise interaction is between product, paper and machine. Together with Jens Torkel, CEO of Rovema, he will soon be a guest on Sappi’s Blue Couch to talk about the cooperation between Sappi and Rovema in the field of functional paper packaging.

The discussion will highlight and explain the launch process of a new product in a new recyclable paper packaging from sustainable, renewable resources. Interested parties will learn what happens in the individual phases and why is it so important that brand owners, material suppliers and machine manufacturers work closely together at a very early stage when it comes to new materials.
