J&J Green Paper Inc. (JJGP), US, takes strong steps to focus on the production of the JANUS® product line to fight the ongoing global plastics crisis. JJGP is developing 23 manufacturing facilities to exclusively produce JANUS-based products in Indonesia, India, Thailand, and China, meanwhile, negotiations for 30 additional plants are underway.

JANUS® is an innovative compound and process created by JJGP. The compound is used to produce water-resistant paper and packaging, free from toxic oil-based materials. It can cost-effectively replace 40 million metric tons of Polyethylene lamination, which is conventionally used to achieve moisture-proof barriers on traditional paper products. Polyethylene lamination is known to emit hazardous greenhouse gases during decomposition, which JANUS can easily eliminate while meeting industrial performance standards. JANUS offers an all-natural, organic, recyclable, compostable, and repulpable moisture-proof coating for paper and paper packaging.

As Mr. Rick Bulman, President of JJGP, explained, “These agreements mark a significant turning point for the paper industry, propelling the establishment of manufacturing plants worldwide that will employ JANUS to reshape the landscape. With a growing demand for non-plastic alternatives, JANUS has the potential to revolutionize the USD 2 trillion paper, paper packaging, and plastics markets, ushering in a sustainable era. JANUS provides a safer, more profitable, and superior alternative to existing paper coating technology.”
