Both are fully recyclable and made from sustainably sourced wood fibers. It has an inner barrier layer, with one prototype lined with a thin recycled PET polymer film. And the other using 100% bio-based PEF polymer film.
The prototypes were unveiled at the C40 World Mayors Summit in Copenhagen on Friday and will be used to test the barrier technology. Carlsberg eventually hopes to create a 100% bio-based bottle without polymers.
Carlsberg started to create the Green Fibre Bottle in 2015 alongside packaging specialists and researchers, jointly by Innovation Fund Denmark.
The inventive step is part of Carlsberg’s sustainability program; this is a commitment towards zero carbon emissions at its breweries. And a 30% decline in its complete value chain of carbon footprint by 2030.
Myriam Shingleton, VP – Group Development, said: “While we are not entirely there yet, the two prototypes are an essential step towards realizing our latest ambition of bringing this breakthrough to market.
“We will continue to associate with leading experts to overcome the remaining technical challenges.”
Carlsberg has also declared that it has connected Coca Cola, Absolut, and L’Oreal in a ‘paper bottle community’.
