RISE and Apple develop bio-based foam to replace fossil-based packaging materials

Partnerships

  • RISE, a Swedish state-owned research institute, has partnered with Apple to develop a bio-based foam with potential applications in packaging and construction. The partners have also announced an invitation to further partnerships to aid the project's advancement.

  • Cellulose foam is intended to replace traditional petroleum-based polymer foam, commonly used in packing and insulation. The partners claim the production process is relatively simple and report observing desirable features like resistance to pressure and homogeneous small pores that provide the material with an aesthetic appearance. The material can also be recycled in the paper recycling stream.
