Huhtamaki Fiber Alabuga will build a production of biodegradable packaging in the UAE "Alabuga"

April 12/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) - LLC "Huhtamaki Fiber Alabuga" intends to launch the production of environmentally friendly and biodegradable packaging for eggs from paper fiber and produce 130 million packages per year, the UAE "Alabuga" said.

The founders of the project are "Partner Polarkap Oi" from Finland and "Huhtamaki Finance BV" from the Netherlands. The production facilities should cover an area of ??6 hectares. The plant is slated to open in the first quarter of 2021. The volume of investments will amount to 1.4 billion rubles, 35 jobs are to be created.

In February this year, Finnish Huhtamaki Flexible Packaging Europe received approval from the European industry group RecyClass (Belgium) for its three new laminated polyethylene tube technologies, developed in collaboration with Czech company Zalesi and toolmaker Plastuni Lisses, part of the Somater Group. Pipes made with this technology from HDPE with easy to apply direct printing have been tested in an independent laboratory. The first PBL 220/11 HD technology, developed in collaboration with Zalesi, enables the production of fully recyclable HDPE products. In fact, the resulting recycled plastic has been tested in the production of new HDPE bottles at concentrations up to 25%.

Earlier it was reported that in December 2019 Huhtamaki put into operation a new line in the city of Ivanteevka (Moscow region). The commissioning of new equipment is part of an investment project that was presented in November 2018 and valued at USD7 million.

According to the ScanPlast by MRC, the estimated consumption of PE in Russia amounted to 241,030 tonnes in January 2021 against 217,890 tonnes in the same period a year earlier. Only high-density polyethylene (LDPE) and low-density polyethylene (HDPE) supplies have grown.

In Russia, Huhtamaki has two production sites - in Ivanteevka (Moscow region) and in Alabuga (Tatarstan), where it produces packaging for the catering industry and packaging for eggs.
