Mondi expands production of paper-based EcoWicketBags

EcoWicketBags are designed to meet demand for sustainable packaging in home and personal care industry.

Mondi, a sustainable packaging and paper manufacturer, has increased production of paper-based EcoWicketBags at its plant in Szada, Hungary, in response to the increasing demand for sustainable packaging in the home and personal care (HPC) industry, particularly for diapers and feminine hygiene products.

By expanding the production of these bags, Mondi further leveraged the group’s integrated value chain, from in-house paper production to coating and converting.

EcoWicketBags are made from Mondi’s FunctionalBarrier paper 95/5, that can be customized with specific barrier and protective properties to meet diverse product needs.

These are available in a variety of sizes for different applications and provide protection from filling to transporting and storage, as well as being suitable for printing customer branding.

According to the company, these bags can be recycled in standard European paper recycling mills as per the 4evergreen guidelines and can support customers in the HPC industry to meet their sustainability goals on their journey towards a circular economy.

EcoWicketBags add to Mondi's range of recyclable, mono-material polymer WicketBags that follow CEFLEX recycling guidelines. The range also includes WicketBags that use a high amount of post-consumer content in line with customer needs.

Piotr Barczykowski, sales director, consumer flexibles at Mondi, said: ‘Our Szada plant in Hungary is well positioned to serve customers across Europe and we are pleased to respond to consumer and customer demands for sustainable solutions with our paper-based EcoWicketBags.’
