Mondi enters low-white recycled office paper market with Nautilus Elemental

Awarded with Blue Angel certification

Cleverbox packaging for Mondi Nautilus

Mondi, a global enterprise in packaging and paper, recently launched Nautilus Elemental, its first recycled office paper product for the low-white segment. The new product made from 100% post-consumer waste complements the existing wide range of premium high-white recycled papers. Low-white recycled papers are particularly popular with public authorities and institutions such as schools. The new paper is now available across Europe.

We are pleased to be able to extend the Nautilus range to include this new offering. With its authentic recycled shade, using this paper sends a positive environmental message, reflecting our commitment to put sustainability at the heart of everything we do,” says Johannes Klumpp, Marketing and Sales director at Mondi Uncoated Fine Paper

Due to the increasing demand for recycled paper, Mondi extended its Nautilus portfolio and availability over the past few years. This latest product innovation is the next milestone in its strategy and targets important low-white markets in Europe where currently limited suppliers exist. Nautilus Elemental is ideally suited for all types of office communication, such as everyday communication, eMail print-outs, direct mail, invoices, and manuals.


Nautilus Elemental is produced in Austria in compliance with certification schemes, including the Blue Angel, FSC Recycled, EU Ecolabel, and the Austrian Ecolabel. It is part of Green Range, Mondi’s umbrella trademark for sustainable paper solutions. The paper comes in packaging made of 100% recycled paper.

Readily available in 80 gram per square meter in A4 & A3, ream-wrapped or as a cleverbox (A4 x 2,500 sheets). It is suitable for inkjet, laser as well as copiers and has a reduced “see through” due to high opacity. It has low dusting and perfect runnability.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
