As a leading specialty paper manufacturer, delfort has taken on the task to develop and manufacture sustainable packaging papers, which are absolutely free from engineered perfluorinated and polyfluorinated chemicals (PFAS/PFC). In recent years, delfort has established its own as well as independent research facilities to promote the research and development of PFAS alternatives. In addition, we started several cooperation projects with universities and initiated many cooperative projects with customers. Our R&D investments have allowed us to offer PFAS-free papers at an industrial scale that are perfect for food wrappers and packaging.
delfort's clear goal is to use natural raw materials and fibers – only sourced from sustainably managed forests – to produce deliberately lightweight, recyclable papers with barrier properties for food packaging that replace plastic and fluorochemicals.
No need for PFAS in paper
For good reasons, regulators, environmental and health groups are pushing to introduce rules of use for PFAS/PFC chemicals. We welcome the current discussion on PFAS/PFC, because we are able to offer more sustainable alternatives.
thinbarrier® eco - the PFAS-free and recycleable food packaging solution
delfort offers functional papers that are produced without the use of PFAS/PFC. We are succeeding in gaining our customers' acceptance of sustainable papers.
We welcome the establishment of a legal framework to promote the transformation to sustainable, PFAS/PFC-free packaging – for a better future for all of us!
Together, we can do it without PFAS/PFC. Simply because it is our responsibility toward the environment.
