Tetra Brik Aseptic 1000 Edge with Bio-based LightCap 30

Tuesday, 20 December, 2016 | Supplied by: Tetra Pak Marketing Pty Ltd


Tetra Pak has launched the Tetra Brik Aseptic 1000 Edge with Bio-based LightCap 30, which has received the highest class of Vinçotte certification for its use of renewable materials.

The package is manufactured using a bio-based plastic film and cap, made from polymers derived from sugar cane. Combined with the paperboard, this lifts the share of materials from renewable sources in the package to above 80%, the threshold for four-star certification from Vinçotte.

The package has a carbon footprint up to 17% lower than a standard package, according to an independent lifecycle analysis conducted by IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute.

Switching to the new version, which is available globally, requires no additional capital equipment investment.
