PulPac to expand its sustainability-driven mission with local U.S. operations, application development, and a demonstration production site in partnership with Curt G Joa
By PulPac ABGeneral
Swedish innovative packaging company PulPac announces an expansion of its mission-driven operations today. Following the partnership with Curt G Joa (JOA) to set up a more significant demonstration site for Dry Molded Fiber, PulPac wants to establish its own U.S. operations in the Upper Mid-West region. The expansion includes a dedicated application-development team and a state-of-the-art sampling facility to accelerate both product innovation and customization.
The U.S. expansion is a strategic move that aims to bring PulPac’s sustainable solutions closer to the market, supporting the company’s vision of creating a more sustainable future. The collaboration with JOA, a leading machinery manufacturer for the hygiene and disposable-products industry, and PulPac’s ongoing partnership with Seismic Solution is a significant step toward scaling up the manufacturing process and offering customers a complete solution for sustainable packaging.
PulPac’s patented Dry Molded Fiber technology is a groundbreaking manufacturing process for turning renewable pulp into high-performance packaging materials that are fully biodegradable, recyclable, and compostable. The Dry Molded Fiber manufacturing process has a lower climate impact than wet-moulding and plastic processing. And it provides the packaging industry with a solution for a swift transition toward circularity to tackle the sustainability challenge the industry is facing.
“We are thrilled to expand our mission and offer our sustainable packaging solutions to the U.S. market,” says Linus Larsson Green, CEO of PulPac. “Our local operations and partnership with JOA enables us to accelerate our innovation efforts and bring our sustainable products closer to our customers. We are committed to creating a circular economy and providing sustainable solutions that benefit the planet and people.”
The expansion is a testament to PulPac’s commitment to innovation and sustainability. With dedicated local U.S. operations, an applications-development team, and a demonstration site with JOA, PulPac is on the verge of revolutionizing the U.S. packaging industry with a brilliantly simple technology that meets both customer needs and environmental challenges, as well as the industry’s need for scalable and economically sustainable solutions.
PulPac provides the packaging industry with groundbreaking manufacturing technology for making economical, high-performance fibre-based packaging and single-use products. By pioneering the technology of cellulose moulding, PulPac enables its customers to replace single-use plastics with sustainable and cost-competitive natural fiber alternatives globally.

Dry Molded Fiber
The Dry Molded Fiber process, invented and internationally patented by PulPac, is a manufacturing technology designed for the emerging circular economy. By leveraging globally available, affordable, and renewable commodity cellulose fiber, Dry Molded Fiber technology allows for producing high-performance fibre-based packaging with highly competitive unit economics. Dry Molded Fiber also saves significant amounts of valuable water resources and energy, resulting in up to 80 per cent lower CO2 footprint than alternatives. Dry Molded Fiber processing is up to 10 times as efficient as conventional fibre-moulding processing, first used over 100 years ago.
