Grass paper is the term used to describe a pulp-based product which, apart from virgin fibre from wood or recycled paper, has a significant proportion of grass fibres (at least 30%). We supply the grass-based raw material for the industrial production of paper. Depending on its purpose, paper can be manufactured from up to 50% grass fibres in industrial production. The formula can include both wood pulp and recycled paper. Grass paper is ideal for food packaging (e.g. for fruit, vegetables, eggs, milk, etc.), dry foods (such as cereals, confectionery and baked goods) and cosmetics and pharmacy products.
It’s also great for service packaging (folding boxes, labels, display stands, brochures). The process to yield the raw material from dried grass is protected by more than 60 patents worldwide. Grass paper is recyclable and compostable and holds all certificates and approvals for extensive use in the paper and packaging industry.
Our ecological responsibility is also our fundamental purpose – to enable the sustainable production of paper from grass
The exploitation of previously unused grasslands (buffer strips) enables additional sources of income for agriculture and also creates jobs in regions with high rural depopulation and unemployment.
When it comes to sustainability, the production process for grass paper wins hands down against paper made of wood pulp – we achieve CO2 reductions of up to 75%! How do we do it?
In comparison, the production of one tonne of paper from wood is as follows:
You can download the „Comparative Eco-Balance of Wood-Based Pulp, Recycled Paper Pulp and Grass-Based Pulp in German Paper Production“ here. The eco-balance carried out by the International Centre for Sustainable Development (IZNE) at Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences clearly demonstrates the superior ecological properties of grass fibre.
Today, grass paper holds all of the required approvals and certificates required for unlimited use in all paper applications and packaging areas. Adjacent you will find an excerpt of all relevant certificates as a PDF download.
Our Creaseed products have been certified as organic since 2013. This requires compliance with the specifications of the EU-Eco regulation. Our organic certification enables us to process seeds from controlled organic cultivation and label them with the organic seal (ecological control point DE-ÖKO-007). We also collaborate with FSC– and PEFC-certified companies.
