Recovered Paper

Here at Smurfit Kappa we are pleased to support the Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI) list of standard grades of recovered paper and board EN643. We purchase and recover various grades of paper which fall into the following categories: High Grades, Kraft Grades, Medium Grades, Ordinary Grades and Special Grades. All grades are checked against the EN643 descriptions which define what they should contain. Please follow the link to our website where you can view all of our recovered paper types along with their technical characteristics.

Recycled Flutings

We are dedicated to providing the industry with the highest level of service at all times. From our paper mills in Europe and Latin America we are continually developing and upgrading our facilities and capabilities in order to meet the ever-changing demands of the industry. Our recycled flutings fall into four main categories: Lightweight Recycled Fluting 1 (RF1) – Europe, Recycled Fluting – Latin America, Recycled Fluting (RF 1) Europe and Latin America and Recycled Fluting 2 (RF2) – Europe and Latin America. Please visit our website for technical characteristics of flutings in these categories and the typical applications they are used for.

Bag-in-Box Packaging

Bag-in-Box (BIB) is a unique packaging solution designed to extend the shelf life of liquids or semi-liquid food products. It consists of a corrugated or solid board outer box that provides outstanding protection during transit and an appropriately sized inner bag that preserves the liquids within.

The outer box may be printed according to brand requirements, and the inner bag fitted with a tap that prevents air from entering the packaging whilst liquid is being dispensed. Bag-in-Box packaging is supplied flat to maximise storage space whilst also reducing costs of transportation.

Smurfit Kappa are also able to supply filling and packaging machinery (see below), giving you a fully integrated solution. Find out more about our Bag-in-Box packaging by visiting the Smurfit Kappa website.
