Sustainpack was four year research programme co-ordinated by Innventia 2004-2008 with a budget of €36m. Of this, €19m was provided by the EU's Sixth Framework Research Programme. The SustainPack project team was comprised of a consortium of 35 partners from 13 countries, representing packaging research associations, academia and industry.
The purpose of SustainPack was to establish fibre-based packaging as the dominant player in the packaging area within a decade. This was achieved by applying nanotechnology solutions to deliver lean and added value fibre-based packaging options for users and consumers.
