– Södra Cell and the composite - material DuraPulp won a prize this week in the category "Bio" in the competition "Plastovationer".
The prize is awarded annually by the magazine Plastforum to a company or person who has used plastic, rubber or a composite material in a product or a detail in a way that replaces other materials and thereby making the product in question better, cheaper and more environmentally friendly.
"It is really nice that the material has gained recognition from the plastic industry", says Anna Altner, Project Manager DuraPulp.
The composite - material DuraPulp is based on fibre pulp in combination with a renewable biopolymer. Thus far the material has been used in the production of a designer lamp and a children's chair and has gained a great deal of attention for its properties in several different contexts.
