Our approach

Designing paper is designing change.

Inventing smart paper that’s more powerful than ever before, yet still affordable, requires innovations at every stage of the process. We believe that we can only succeed by following the rules of circular economy, listening carefully to the needs of our partners and collaborating with agile teamwork and creativity.

The DELSCI Approach: Paper - Thinking - Design

In order to power change, we’ve combined the philosophy of 'designing paper’ with the potential of 'design thinking’. This combination is called 'paper thinking’ and we’re proud to call ourselves 'paper thinkers'.

A lifespan of responsibility

Product design led by responsibility

At every stage of the product lifespan, from raw materials to disposal, our team strives to find new ways to minimize our environmental footprint. We focus on designing paper from renewable sources, and ensure final paper packaging is recyclable, biodegradable and compostable.

1. Responsible raw materials

Increase the use of eco-friendly or eco-based raw materials with low environmental footprint.

4. Optimized product lifespan

Enhance product performance and choose the appropriate end-of-live strategy, such as reusability, recyclability, compostability and biodegradability.

2. Optimized manufacturing

Increase the efficient use of natural resources during the production process, such as energy, heat, water, waste and raw materials.

3. Improved converting & processing performance

Optimize product quality consistency to enhance processing performance and minimize environmental impact.

Product specifications

Oil Illustration

Oil & Grease
protection

Without using any plastic lamination we are able to adjust the oil and grease barrier properties (OGR) of our functional papers.

Water Icon

Water & Vapour
protection

Depending on the application we are able to tailor the water & vapour permeability of our packaging papers.

HCS & O2 Protection Icon

Oxygen barrier

Especially in flexible packaging applications the barrier to volatile mineral oil constituents, oxygen and flavoring substances is being addressed by our scientists.

Sealable

For flexible packaging applications the containment needs to be sealed. We cooperate with our customers on the development of sealing processes.
