UPM ProFi: The story

Development story – sustainable WPC products

 

In 2005, UPM's research scientists in Finland developed a new sustainable material that solved two separate problems at the same time:

  • how to develop a composite decking with better technical performance than traditional wpc (wood plastic composite) products
  • how to recycle the mixture of paper, plastic, silicon, and ink that forms the waste generated in the manufacture of self-adhesive labels
