As the first in the world, Akvila launches biobased wood fiber cutlery to the market at the beginning of 2019. Akvila Nature Line wood fibre cutlery are made from renewable and sustainable raw-materials and bring a completely new option to replace single use plastics cutlery.

 

As a material, wood fiber presents a unique product experience. The products are stronger and durable than ever before with a guaranteed heat resistance of over 100 degrees and the ability to even withstand a machine wash.

Material

Akvila’s new Nature Line cutlery are made from Stora Enso’s wood fiber biocomposite, a mixture of wood fibres and bio-polyethylene derived from sugar cane. DuraSense™ by Stora Enso biocomposite is a concrete example of how non-renewable, fossil-based plastics can be replaced with renewable bio-based materials, like wood.

 

The compound’s wood raw material is sourced from sustainable sources within 70 km average distance from Stora Enso Hylte mill, Europe’s largest wood fibre-based biocomposite plant. All wood sources are covered by a third-party certified Chain of Custody system.

Responsibility

Akvila’s wood fiber cutlery has up to 80% lower carbon footprint than the ordinary plastic cutlery and up to 50% compared to cutlery made from PLA. Akvila’s Nature Line cutlery are packed in paper packages.

 

The product is recyclable and can be reused as a material up to 6 times or recycled along with other plastic materials.

 

At the end of their life cycle, wood fibre cutlery is a renewable energy resource.
