The jury was impressed by the possibility of using recycled material to achieve a barrier solution from a food protection aspect. This again opens up a realm of possibilities for using paper and board grades. In contrast to barrier solutions which are applied to the surface, the activated carbon of the "MB12 technology" acts in the core and thus also on the cut edges of the finished packaging. MB12 not only acts as a barrier, but is also a catalyst that binds volatile organic substances. All common processing technologies can therefore be used during production without breaching the barrier.

In addition, other paper properties such as a moisture or fat-repellent layer can now also be combined. This makes it possible to react to the very specific individual requirements of the products to be packaged.
