Sprint Challenge Brief:
Sustainable Films and Coatings for Paperboard
Sprint Submissions Closed
In support of several packaging companies, TechConnect Ventures is calling for Entries describing innovations and emerging approaches for sustainable films or coatings that can be applied to paperboard. Traditional films and coatings, such as those commonly added for barrier protection or to modify structural integrity, are often made of petroleum-based chemicals or negatively impact the recyclability of the finished paperboard product. To counteract this, the clients for this Sprint are interested in:
A film or coating that is both produced via a sustainable method and which permits standard recycling practices is of greatest interest to the clients however partial solutions remain within scope.
The goal of this sprint is to facilitate contact and interactions between the Sprint sponsor and active researchers or technology developers in this space. Submissions and novel concepts from individuals and organizations in academia and research are of significant interest, but all viable technology providers are invited to respond for potential commercial opportunities with the client.
Areas of Interest
Our clients are interested in all sustainably produced films and coatings or those that allow recycling via conventional methods. Relevant areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
