Product Innovation

The European paper industry is a highly innovative sector. Its strategic vision of reconciling sustainability and competitiveness, the inherent properties of its raw materials, and the transformation the sector is going through are already delivering new products, new technologies, new bio-values, and business opportunities. In 2011, Cepi launched the 2050 Roadmap to a low-carbon bioeconomy, as the very first European manufacturing industry sector to react to the European Commission’s roadmap towards a low-carbon economy with its own sector roadmap. The Two Team Project, which ran in 2013, seeked to find the most innovative breakthrough technologies of the industry with two teams competing against each other. Eight breakthrough technologies made it to the publication. In 2015, Cepi collected more than 40 of the industry’s most innovative products in another publication, The Age of Fibre, showcasing once again the versatility and innovation in the industry. You can find all these publications on this page, dedicated to innovation. Cepi is also a founding member of the European Bioeconomy Alliance.
