Biodegradable wood-fibre bottle in development


Monday, 02 February, 2015

Carlsberg, the Technical University of Denmark and packaging company ecoXpac have announced plans to develop the world’s first fully biodegradable wood-fibre bottle for beverages.

The three parties have announced a three-year project to develop a biodegradable and biobased bottle made from sustainably sourced wood-fibre. To be known as the ‘Green Fiber Bottle’, it will be developed using bio-based and biodegradable materials, allowing it to be responsibly degraded.

“If the project comes to fruition, and we think it will, it will mark a sea-change in our options for packaging liquids and will be another important step on our journey towards a circular, zero-waste economy,” said Andraea Dawson-Shepherd, senior vice president for corporate affairs at Carlsberg.

Carlsberg made the announcement after its participation in a panel on wasteless supply at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
