Kruger to supply pulp for production of eco-friendly disposable masks
MONTREAL, August 7, 2020-
Kruger Inc. has entered into a partnership with Pulp Moulded Products Inc. (PMP) for the supply of low-carbon footprint fibres that will enable PMP to produce a prototype of a low-cost, single-use biodegradable mask. Developed by PMP for non-frontline workers and civilians, this ecofriendly alternative will be made from KruPulp, Kruger’s FDA-compliant and FSC-certified pulp.
“Kruger is very proud to contribute to the collective effort against COVID-19 by helping PMP bring to market this innovative product entirely sourced in Canada and made from a renewable resource. Thanks to our high quality low-carbon footprint pulp, the masks will have the lowest environmental impact possible,” said Maxime Cossette, Vice President of Global Sustainability and Biomaterials, Kruger Inc.
