Kruger to supply pulp for the manufacture of ecofriendly disposable masks
MONTRÉAL (News release) -- 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.

KruPulp products are composed of either recycled or virgin fibres that are sourced locally and responsibly. The fibres are converted into pulp through an optimized, energy efficient process, in a facility that relies on renewable power, including hydroelectricity and biomass steam plants.

PMP's moulded face masks will be economical, recyclable and compostable, and therefore an ideal solution for industrial and commercial settings, as well as public venues where social distancing is challenging, such as production plants, service industries, sporting venues, public markets and public transit.
