The Requirements In The Supplementary Module Of Grease Proof Paper
Nov 27, 2017

The requirements in the supplementary module of grease proof paper have been tightened significantly. The revision work focused on energy consumption and emissions from paper manufacturing as well as the use of chemicals specific to grease proof paper. The Nordic Ecolabel’s criteria for grease-proof paper are included in a module system, meaning that many of the requirements for grease-proof paper can be found in the Basic and Chemical Modules, version 2.

These documents were revised in 2011. The revision of the requirements in the Basic and Chemical Modules entails a significant tightening of the requirements for grease-proof paper. Nordic Ecolabelled grease-proof paper has less impact on the environment than most other papers in its product group. Characteristics for grease-proof paper are: 

They contain fibre raw materials from sustainable forestry operations 

They are produced with low energy consumption and with a limited use of chemicals. Chrome- and fluorine compounds are absolutely forbidden. 

Manufacturing has low emissions to air and to water. With these revised requirements for grease-proof paper, Nordic Ecolabelling aims to reduce the environmental impact, especially through requirements for energy efficient productions and bans on chemicals harmful to human health and the environment. The requirements apply to both paper manufacturers and converters. Grease-proof papers are in this criterion defined as cellulose-based papers coated with various substances. The paper mills normally use finely milled cellulose which is coated with various waxes and silicones. Nordic Ecolabelled grease-proof paper is comprised of baking paper and food paper, sandwich wrapper and sandwich interlay paper, roasting bags, and converted products from the aforementioned paper types. Examples of converted products include baking cases (e.g. cupcake and muffins cups).
