Sustainable Packaging Program
Imagining the future of our fibers

CMPC invites you to join the challenge of the climate crisis by opening spaces for collaboration and investing in the construction of solutions that allow us to aspire to a world that uses materials with a lower impact, oriented to the circular bioeconomy, creating value through the use of renewable biological resources, reusing and recycling.

Postula

Savia is a global innovation program seeking sustainable packaging solutions with high scalability potential that generate value for the consumer and society in general and contribute to overcoming global challenges that are relevant for the industry´s future and the climate crisis.


SAVIA is done in partnership with a wide network

We have a global network, which includes different alliances with world leaders in design and innovation and with public entities. We also incorporate in the process the companies of which we are suppliers, to detect their needs and those of consumers, and thus target developments that are useful and generate benefits throughout the value chain.

In this way, we promote an ecosystem, establishing a greater connection and collaboration between academia, business, civil society, State and international networks.

The program includes 5 challenges or areas that could guide you in your application, which could be associated with one or more of them.

What new materials can be created to eliminate single-use or hard-to-recycle plastics? How can we create materials with low environmental impact and great performance or behavior?

We are looking for solutions that explore new natural fibers or materials that can work in the packaging industry, which can replace single-use or hard-to-recycle plastics. The proposals must consider and comply with different requirements depending on their proposed use, such as resistance, flexibility, light weight, transparency and hygiene, among others. 

Proposals that use some of CMPC´s byproducts, such as sludge, ash, dregs and grits, bark, leaves, stumps, tall oil and methanol, among others, will be of special interest.

What new uses could we find for materials manufactured from cellulose? What innovations could we create to find second uses to the packaging manufactured with these materials?

We are looking for innovations that provide new uses for materials or packaging manufactured from cellulose – such as paper, corrugated cardboard, molded pulp and construction paper.  You can also submit solutions that propose new post-consumer uses for this packaging, giving it a second useful life.

How can we add value – with new qualities or functionalities – to packaging made from cellulose to improve the user experience and contribute to more sustainable development in the packaging industry?

We are focusing on the search for innovations that provide new qualities or functionalities to cellulose-based packaging (such as paper, cardboard, and construction paper, among others), generating value for the user and improving the shopping or user experience.

How can we apply new technologies to packaging made from cellulose that improve its usage, functionality, traceability or recovery logistics for environmentally-responsible management?

This challenge seeks solutions that explore new technologies for packaging or products.  Here, intelligent packaging solutions, for example, could be explored.  Likewise, the innovations can address traceability and recovery logistics issues for responsible management.

How do we go from the sale of a product to the sale of a service in the packaging industry? What new business models can we implement to generate value for customers and consumers while reducing the impact on our planet?

We are looking for new services and business models for the packaging industry that are focused on digitalization and circular economy.  The proposals must move from the sale of a product toward the sale of a service or experience for consumers or customers.

What new materials can be created to eliminate single-use or hard-to-recycle plastics? How can we create materials with low environmental impact and great performance or behavior?

We are looking for solutions that explore new natural fibers or materials that can work in the packaging industry, which can replace single-use or hard-to-recycle plastics.

Who are we looking for?

We are searching for teams from around the world that have ready-to-implement solutions or solutions in the final development process with high scalability and/or marketing potential.

Companies, startups, institutions, developers and designers, etc., can apply to SAVIA.

SAVIA is a space to design, prototype and pilot the packaging of the future, with CMPC and a global network of industry leaders.
