UPM Raflatac's smart label solution makes recycling smarter than ever2018-06-13T07:00:00Z<p class="hugin">(UPM Raflatac, Helsinki, 13 June 2018 at 10&#58;00 EET) - UPM Raflatac combines digitalization with circular economy. By adding RafMore smart label solution to its RafCycle® recycling process, UPM Raflatac is able to optimize the waste collection process from its customers. The smart labels added to the recycling containers and scanned by a mobile app tell when the customers' waste is ready to be collected.</p> <p class="hugin"><img alt="" class="hugin" height="353" id="Picture 4" src="https&#58;//hugin.info/165629/I/2198752/128877.jpg" width="627" /></p> <p class="hugin"><i class="hugin">Per Hasso, Warehouse assistant at Xellia Pharmaceuticals shows how RafMore application works.</i></p> <p class="hugin">RafCycle is a cost efficient waste recycling solution that collects label release liner waste from our partners throughout Europe. The RafMore smart label solution was tested with several RafCycle customers in Denmark and Sweden, and the waste material collected from these customers can be turned into new products at UPM Plattling paper mill in Germany where the paper release liners are de-siliconized and recycled into pulp and paper, closing the loop. </p> <p class="hugin">Previously, the waste collection process was done manually, which required a lot of communication between UPM Raflatac and the customers. By combining two innovative solutions, UPM Raflatac makes recycling smarter than ever. </p> <p class="hugin">&quot;We now give our RafCycle customers unique codes through which we can track the exact amount of waste and give direct feedback via the RafMore mobile application. This helps us to better manage our logistic processes, making the waste collection process more efficient. By doing so, we offer our customers better service and help them to make more sustainable choices,&quot; says <b class="hugin">Claus Søndergaard</b>, Sales Manager, Denmark, UPM Raflatac. </p> <p class="hugin">&quot;We have been using RafCycle for recycling our glassine liners from our production for several years now and it has been a great solution. Recently, we implemented the new RafMore solution which made for logistic efficiency in our warehouse because it moved the planning of RafCycle pickups into the hands of UPM Raflatac. The mobile app itself is easy to install and use. On top of the logistic app solution, we now have a better overview of the total volume that has been moved from waste to a resource,&quot; says <b class="hugin">Per Hasso</b>, Warehouse Assistant, Xellia Pharmaceuticals.</p> <p class="hugin">Xellia Pharmaceuticals was an early adopter within the pharmaceutical industry to take advantage of the RafCycle program and enter into a circular economy solution for their glassine waste.</p> <p class="hugin">RafMore is much more than a label - it is a completely new innovative solution that allows brand owners to turn ordinary product labels into smart packaging that tells an ever-evolving story. Using the latest digital printing technology, RafMore transforms traditional product packaging into connected packaging with a unique traceable identity. UPM Raflatac is planning to take RafMore into use in other countries.</p> <p class="hugin">UPM Raflatac leads the label industry with RafCycle®, an innovative recycling concept that offers a new life for label waste. Label recycling provides numerous benefits to printers, packers, brand-owners, and, of course, the environment.&#160;UPM Raflatac currently has more than 100 RafCycle customers globally. </p> <p class="hugin"><a class="hugin" href="http&#58;//www.upmraflatac.com/emea/en/solutions-and-services/services/rafmore" target="_blank">Read more about RafMore smart label solution »</a> </p> <p class="hugin"><a class="hugin" href="https&#58;//www.youtube.com/watch?v=uAdoVLUR-CQ" target="_blank">Watch a video about RafMore smart labels »</a></p> <p class="hugin"><a class="hugin" href="http&#58;//www.upmraflatac.com/emea/en/sustainability/sustainable-label-solutions/rafcycle" target="_blank">Read more about RafCycle recycling program »</a></p> <p class="hugin"><a class="hugin" href="https&#58;//upm.emmi.fi/l/97_QqjpqSf5k" target="_blank">Click here to download a photo of RafMore application in action »</a></p> <p class="hugin"><b class="hugin">For further information please contact&#58;</b><br class="hugin">Juha Virmavirta, Director, RafCycle Solutions, UPM Raflatac, tel. +358 20 416143</p> <p class="hugin"><b class="hugin">UPM, Media Relations </b><br class="hugin">Mon-Fri 9.00-16.00 EET<br class="hugin">tel. +358 40 588 3284 <br class="hugin"><a class="hugin" href="mailto&#58;media@upm.com" target="_blank">media@upm.com</a></p> <p class="hugin"><b class="hugin">UPM Raflatac </b><br class="hugin">UPM Raflatac is labeling a smarter future by developing innovative and sustainable labeling solutions complemented with world-class service.

The Court of Appeal dismissed the claim of Metsähallitus2018-05-21T08:00:00Z<p class="hugin">(UPM, Helsinki, 21 May 2018 at 11&#58;00 EET) - The Helsinki Court of Appeal has today rendered a judgement whereby it has dismissed the damages claim of Metsähallitus against UPM, Stora Enso Corporation and Metsäliitto Cooperative. The claim was based on the competition restriction concerning the raw wood market during 1997-early 2004 found by the Market Court decision of 3 December 2009. Also the Helsinki District Court had previously rejected Metsähallitus' claim in its judgement on 22 June 2016.</p> <p class="hugin">The Court of Appeal ordered Metsähallitus to compensate UPM for its legal expenses.</p> <p class="hugin">According to Metsähallitus' claim, the forest industry companies had caused damage to Metsähallitus on the basis of the competition restriction found by the Market Court decision of 3 December 2009. The capital amount of Metsähallitus' claim was in total approximately EUR 124.9 million, of which approximately EUR 17.6 million was based on agreements between Metsähallitus and UPM.</p> <p class="hugin">UPM agrees with the Court of Appeal's ruling. UPM maintains that it has not caused the alleged damage to Metsähallitus. Metsähallitus may request leave to appeal from the Supreme Court concerning the Court of Appeal's judgement.</p> <p class="hugin"><b class="hugin">For further information please contact&#58;</b><br class="hugin">Juha Mäkelä, General Counsel, UPM, tel. +358 20 415 0407</p> <p class="hugin"><b class="hugin">UPM, Media Relations </b><br class="hugin">Mon-Fri 9.00-16.00 EET<br class="hugin">tel. +358 40 588 3284 <br class="hugin"><a class="hugin" href="mailto&#58;media@upm.com" target="_blank">media@upm.com</a></p> <p class="hugin"><b class="hugin">UPM</b><br class="hugin">UPM leads the forest-based bioindustry into a sustainable, innovation-driven and exciting future across six business areas&#58; UPM Biorefining, UPM Energy, UPM Raflatac, UPM Specialty Papers, UPM Communication Papers and UPM Plywood.

UPM Raflatac expands food labeling range with four new food-safe products2018-05-15T10:00:00Z<p class="hugin">(UPM Raflatac, Helsinki, 15 May 2018 at 10&#58;00 EET) - UPM Raflatac is introducing four new food-safe labeling products to the European market. This will expand the company's food labeling range, providing a wider range of material options for brand owners and packaging designers. All four products meet the European Union's stringent requirements for food safety.</p> <p class="hugin">Synthermal Clear Plus is a high-clarity direct thermal film that provides excellent product visibility for a no-label look on food packaging. Demonstrating a clear commitment to product safety, the film is Bisphenol A (BPA) and Bisphenol S (BPS) free - taking the European Union legislation that requires thermal paper sold in Europe to be BPA free after 2 January 2020 one step further. Synthermal Clear Plus has excellent convertibility with a great deal of flexibility for process improvements at the printer.</p> <p class="hugin">Premium and artisanal foods need high-quality label materials that can reflect the luxury nature of the brand. At the same time, consumers and brand owners alike are increasingly looking to make more sustainable choices. To address this demand, UPM Raflatac is introducing three new textured and tactile paper face materials that highlight the quality of the products they label while also having excellent sustainability credentials. Antique Food-FSC has a finely textured finish, Fleur de Coton Food-FSC offers a natural finish, and Multiprint Food-FSC has a pleasing satin finish. All three can also be foiled or embossed when printing for a visually stunning end result. </p> <p class="hugin">The three paper face materials are all FSC(TM) certified, guaranteeing that the wood raw material originates from sustainably managed forests. As with Synthermal Clear Plus, food safety has been paramount in their development and all three comply with the latest EU food safety regulations. </p> <p class="hugin">&quot;Food safety is the most important attribute of all the products included in our wide range of materials for food labeling applications. We hear the industry demand for more product options to help with brand recognition and differentiation, and these four new products are just the start. We will continue to expand our range to meet the demands of the industry, with a focus on product safety, anticipating regulatory changes, and sustainability in particular,&quot; explains <b class="hugin">Jouni Iiskola</b>, Segment Manager, UPM Raflatac EMEIA.</p> <p class="hugin"><a class="hugin" href="https&#58;//upm.emmi.fi/l/Gwcgj7c_GhMt" target="_blank">High resolution images available at UPM Image bank »</a></p> <p class="hugin"><b class="hugin">For further information please contact&#58;</b><br class="hugin">Jouni Iiskola, Segment Manager, UPM Raflatac EMEIA, tel. +358 2041 68193</p> <p class="hugin"><b class="hugin">UPM, Media Relations </b><br class="hugin">Mon-Fri 9.00-16.00 EET<br class="hugin">tel. +358 40 588 3284 <br class="hugin"><a class="hugin" href="mailto&#58;media@upm.com" target="_blank">media@upm.com</a></p> <p class="hugin"><b class="hugin">UPM Raflatac </b><br class="hugin">UPM Raflatac is labeling a smarter future by developing innovative and sustainable labeling solutions complemented with world-class service.

UPM continues to grow in the global label paper business2018-04-26T11:15:00Z<p class="hugin">(UPM, Helsinki, 26 April 2018 at 11&#58;15 EET) - As the world leader in label papers, UPM continues to grow in the attractive release liner segments to support its customers globally. Steady growth is expected to continue in all markets driven by favourable economic conditions and strong increase in specialty paper demand for labelling, packaging and e-commerce as well as in medical and hygiene applications.</p> <p class="hugin">To strengthen its position UPM will rebuild paper machine 2 at its Nordland mill in Dörpen, Germany and convert it from fine paper to glassine paper production. The machine will be equipped with new finishing equipment and starts producing glassine paper as of Q4 2019. The planned capacity after the rebuild will be 110,000 tonnes per year. The total investment in Nordland is EUR 116 million. The production of woodfree papers on PM2 in Nordland will continue until Q3 2019 and the machine will be producing both glassine and woodfree paper during the ramp-up phase. </p> <p class="hugin">UPM has also decided to further increase the release liner base paper capacity at UPM Changshu mill in China. Since the successful startup of the paper machine 3 in Changshu, UPM has established a strong position in the label paper segment in Asia. By installing a second supercalender on paper machine 3, there will be an additional capacity of more than 40,000 tons of glassine paper a year as of Q1 2020. The total investment in Changshu is EUR 33 million.</p> <p class="hugin">&quot;We see strong growth in all our market segments and we are committed to be part of the growth. The planned investments in Nordland and Changshu, along with the earlier announced calender investment at our Jämsänkoski mill, will increase customer confidence in their global growth in release liner applications. The planned installations will also enable increased specialisation of our assets. Thus we can improve our operational efficiency and strengthen supply security,&quot; says <b class="hugin">Bernd Eikens</b>, Executive Vice President of UPM Specialty Papers.</p> <p class="hugin"><b class="hugin">For more information, please contact&#58;</b><br class="hugin">Bernd Eikens, Executive Vice President, UPM, Specialty Papers, tel. +49 160 707 3940<br class="hugin">Jaakko Nikkilä, Senior Vice President, UPM, Specialty Papers Europe &amp; North America, <br class="hugin">tel. +358 40 749 3239</p> <p class="hugin"><b class="hugin">UPM, Media Relations </b><br class="hugin">Mon-Fri 9.00-16.00 EET<br class="hugin">tel. +358 40 588 3284 <br class="hugin"><a class="hugin" href="mailto&#58;media@upm.com" target="_blank">media@upm.com</a></p> <p class="hugin"><b class="hugin">UPM Specialty Papers</b><br class="hugin">UPM Specialty Papers produces labelling and packaging materials to global markets and fine papers to Asian markets.
