Vendors are providing high-performance, lightweight containerboard to reduce cost, improve performance, and address environmental concerns. These are eco-friendly products that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. MWV Rigesa also acquired a new paper machine that uses advanced technology to produce innovative kraftliner paper. Mondi, an international packaging company, invested in the recycled containerboard machine ECO7, which produces cost-effective, lightweight liners and flutings with an annual production capacity of 470,000 tons. Mondi also introduced ProVantage, a lightweight, durable, high-fiber containerboard made from recycled fiber. At the Interpack event in 2014, Mondi showcased its kraft portfolio of high-quality containerboard grades suitable for various packaging end-users such as chemical and pharmaceutical.

Vendors in Brazil, the major revenue contributor in the region, are increasing their operations either by expanding existing production plants or by acquiring small vendors.
