Mondi plans to invest around €5 million in a new R&D facility in Germany, aimed at developing solutions that will help customers achieve their sustainability goals.
Construction has begun and when completed, the facility – which will be located at the company’s Steinfeld site – is expected to include pilot lines for plastic- and paper-based solutions, as well as an analytical laboratory and a floor dedicated to a customer experience centre.
Elisabeth Schwaiger, head of R&D and IP flexible packaging at Mondi, said: “This R&D centre demonstrates our hands-on approach to developing sustainable packaging solutions at Mondi. We look forward to working with our customers, combining their knowledge with ours to meet their sustainable packaging goals.
“The investment helps to contribute to our own ‘Mondi Action Plan 2030’ sustainability goals, specifically our target to make 100% of our products reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025.”
The R&D centre is expected to open its doors by the end of 2023 and will complement Mondi’s other research centres, such as its recycling and food safety laboratories in Austria.
