Tetra Rex carton made from plant-based, renewable materials

Tuesday, 21 October, 2014 | Supplied by: Tetra Pak Marketing Pty Ltd

Tetra Pak has announced the launch of the Tetra Rex carton which, according to the company, will be the first to be made entirely from plant-based, renewable packaging materials.

The carton will have bio-based, low-density polyethylene (LDPE) films and bio-based, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) caps, both derived from sugar cane, in addition to Forest Stewardship Council (FSC T) certified paperboard.

Developed in partnership with Braskem, a biopolymers producer, the package will be commercially available in early 2015. Customers using the standard 1 L Tetra Rex with TwistCap OSO 34 can transfer to the new version without any additional investment or modification to their filling machines.
