Collaborative projects


An innovative blister, recyclable and biodegradable

  • To anticipate the French Law against waste and for Circular Economy (AGEC) which bans the use of plastic films for delivery of printed documents (newspapers, magazines, advertisements, etc.) from 2022.
  • To create a transparent paper to replace plastic blister packs for magazines and newspapers.
  • To support the implementation and production of this new innovative cellulose packaging

Aim of the project

Launched in 2017, e-Bliss is an R&D project led and financed by Citeo, in partnership with the Centre Technique du Papier.
The Citeo and CTP project has led to the creation of a new transparent and heat-sealing routing film made of cellulose fibre and therefore perfectly recyclable in the paper industry. Cellulose fibre is currently undergoing a technological revolution that makes it a credible solution to the difficulty of recycling certain packaging such as plastic routing cases.
The first industrial tests were successfully carried out in the summer of 2020 for this solution, which is ready to be marketed in 2021, with financial support from Citeo for industrial-scale deployment.
These projects are part of Citeo's R&D programme on the eco-design of paper and packaging. Many of the projects in this programme are conducted in partnership with companies, consortiums and Technical Centres to produce solutions that can be industrialised in 1 to 3 years.



Citéo press release - October 2020
The French Law against waste and for Circular Economy (AGEC) provides for the banning of " plastic films for delivery of printed documents (newspapers, magazines, advertisements, etc.) from 2022. In order to respond to this public decision and wishing to anticipate in order to provide readers with concrete and effective solutions, several press publishers, accompanied by Citéo, are already ready for this transition. The e-Bliss project, carried out by the Centre Technique du Papier and piloted by Citéo, is inventing tomorrow's packaging for newspapers and magazines.

The eco-design of blister packs to limit the environmental impact of press packaging
With a view to the elimination of plastic films as part of the AGEC law for 2022, newspaper publishers are already taking action to reduce the environmental impact of their packaging. An approach that anticipates and meets the expectations of readers who are increasingly demanding virtuous environmental solutions.
The new packaging will have to be recyclable and compostable, while retaining its primary role in protecting magazines and newspapers. As part of its strategy of 100% recycling or reuse solutions for packaging and paper, Citéo is supporting innovation to accompany several press publishers in their transition. Its calls for Research & Development projects have made it possible to provide financial support for innovations to improve eco-design, recycling and reuse.

E-Bliss is therefore one of these projects for the future!
As part of this project, the CTP has developed a recyclable and biodegradable paper-based materiala, guaranteeing its virtuous use in the circular economy of tomorrow.
