watttron secures funding to advance sustainable packaging mission

Packaging Solutions

watttron has successfully raised € 12 million in Series B funding. The round was led by the Circular Innovation Fund (CIF) and the European Circular Bioeconomy Fund (ECBF). watttron’s long term partners, TGFS Technologiegründerfonds Sachsen, Constancia New Business (CNB), SKion GmbH, the BA Mr. Rico Kleinhempel and the new investors will back the company in its mission to drive sustainability in the packaging industry.


The latest round of funding will allow it to develop its technological capabilities of sustainable packaging solutions and expand into the American and Asian markets. Today, as the global demand for packaging rises, the industry stands at a critical juncture where change is imperative. The imperative for this transformation is accentuated by a fervent dedication to sustainability, recognising that growth must not compromise our environment, particularly in light of the adoption of the PPWR Regulation by the EU.


‘Sustainability is more than just a trend; it is a commitment we take seriously. We believe sustainable practices will shape the future of the packaging industry, and we are excited to contribute with the support of ECBF and the Circular Innovation Fund,’ said Marcus Stein, CEO of watttron.


Stephane Villecroze, managing partner, Demeter Investment Managers, said: ‘We are delighted to contribute to watttron's sustainable packaging mission via the Circular Innovation Fund managed by Demeter and Cycle Capital. Marcus and his team are developing industry leading digital heating systems for existing and new packaging machines. This funding gives them capital for expansion and helps promote efficient production processes while adhering to sustainability principles in the packaging industry.’


Guillaume Gras, investment director, ECBF, said: ‘watttron's technology represents a quantum leap in sustainable packaging, drastically cutting carbon emissions by reducing material and energy use, and enabling the use of mono-materials, which significantly enhances recyclability. Simultaneously enhancing production efficiency and cost effectiveness, this investment signifies more than financial support; it is a commitment to pioneering a greener, more efficient future in the packaging industry.’
