Crush, the paper derived from agro-industrial waste, gained considerable attention after its presentation at Luxepack Monaco 2012. Initially, the collection was limited to only seven colours, each representing a specific ingredient obtained from by-products of citrus, corn, coffee, hazelnuts, almonds, olives and kiwi. Over the years, research has been conducted in our R&D laboratory that has led to an expansion of the range. Currently, the collection has been nearly doubled, incorporating additional colours such as cherry, lavender, grape, cocoa and coconut. The question now arises: What will be the next ingredient that will join the range and make up to 15 percent of the paper’s composition?
Crush is now part of a range of environmentally friendly papers that meets the many needs and preferences of companies who wish to communicate on the most sustainable medium available: Paper from our Echosystem.
As part of Paper from our Echosystem collection, in regard to Crush it is guaranteed that:
- Made from eco-innovative raw materials, in this case from upcycling 15% agro-industrial by-products and also includes recycled paper fibre (40% pcw).
- The emissions are measured and have been totally offset.
- It is made with renewable energy sources; in the case of Crush this is self-produced.
- Proudly holds FSC™ certification, highlighting its commitment to being both recyclable and biodegradable.
- It is produced in accordance with a production process that is monitored and constantly improved.
Which papers are included in our most eco-friendly collection?
The Circular Coffee project
Crush, particularly Crush Coffee, has been the protagonist of CirCo – Circular Coffee: a circular bioeconomy project born from the collaboration of various entities, Favini included.
Funded by Fondazione Cariplo and InnovHub-Stazioni Sperimentali per l’Industria (an Italian research, innovation and technology transfer centre), the project involves not only our paper mill but also Cnr, the Dipartimento di scienze e politiche ambientali dell’Università di Milano, the Accademia Eurac Research di Bolzano, and the multinational cosmetics company Intercos.
The main goal of the project is to enhance the by-product of coffee roasting, known as “silverskin” or the skin that envelops the coffee bean.
