Cellutech is now a part of Stora Enso. Cellutech is the cutting-edge scientific research company developing new sustainable wood-based materials that won Packbridge Start-up Challenge in September. They are the team behind Cellufoam, a lightweight foam made of paper which replaces traditional plastic foams, such as Styrofoam in packaging.

 

Packbridge wishes Cellutech all the best on their next leg of their journey. As part of Stora Enso’s Biomaterials Division, the team will continue their work of developing and commercialising new materials and applications. Stora Enso is a leading global provider of renewable solutions in packaging, biomaterials, wooden constructions and paper.

The finale of the Packbridge Start-up Challenge was held during the conference Top Packaging Summit by Packbridge in September. The remaining 10 start-ups competed for two prizes and Cellutech took them both! The Cellufoam material was presented and awarded with both the first prize selected by the jury and then also the audience vote for Best pitch, sponsored by Empack.
