APFU - A revolutionary upcycling technology from Furukawa Electric.
Advanced Paper Fibre Upcycling or ‘APFU’ blends traditionally difficult to recycle multi-layered plastic packaging with the cellulose fibres found in paper waste, to create a new material with up to 2 times the tensile strength.
Furukawa’s unique process disperses these cellulose fibres uniformly into the polyolefin plastic found in multi-layered material, reinforcing it.
The new material is strong enough to be used in many applications such as furniture, electronic appliances, as well as shipping pallets and cable ducts.
