The USA-based manufacturing venture SustainaPac LLC has joined PulPac’s licensee network. The company aims to strengthen the shift from single-use plastics to more sustainable alternatives and wants to build Dry Molded Fiber production facilities across the country.

Employing the Dry Molded Fiber technology, SustainaPac intends to establish itself as a source of highly economical natural fiber, single-use food service packaging products for the growing North American QSR sustainability market. As the packaging industry works to balance environmental concerns with business performance, product sustainability is key. The Dry Molded Fiber technology enables the replacement of multiple single-use plastic products with sustainable fiber-based alternatives at commercial scale – setting a new standard for sustainable packaging. The highly economical dry fiber forming technology allows for fiber products produced in North America to be reasonably competitive on a cost basis with like plastic products.

“North American QSR’s are clamoring for economical, domestically produced, compostable fiber products to replace their single-use plastic packaging where appropriate, and SustainaPac with PulPac fiber forming technology will be out front meeting that demand.”

Les Schaevitz, SustainaPac CEO 

SustainaPac intends to build a series of Dry Molded Fiber production facilities across the USA making fiber drink cup lids, hinged containers, bowls, trays, and related products beginning with a dedicated high volume fiber hot and cold drink cup lid plant in Jacksonville, Florida. 

“Time is increasingly becoming the most important factor in dealing with environmental challenges. Now is the time for action. Together with converters like SustainaPac stepping up to the plate, we can accelerate the shift towards sustainable fiber-based packaging and away from single-use plastics. Next generations deserve new generations of packaging where sustainability is just a given.”
