Carlsberg to Develop Biodegradable Beer Bottle
Print

Copenhagen, Denmark 06 February 2015 -- In the context of its participation in a panel on Wasteless Supply at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Carlsberg announced a ground-breaking agreement to develop the world's first fully biodegradable wood-fiber bottle for beverages.

Carlsberg has initiated a three-year project with packaging company ecoXpac, with the collaboration of Innovation Fund Denmark and the Technical University of Denmark, to develop a biodegradable and biobased bottle made from sustainably sourced wood-fiber, to be known as the "Green Fiber Bottle".

All materials used in the bottle, including the cap, will be developed using bio-based and biodegradable materials - primarily, sustainably sourced wood-fibers - allowing the bottle to be responsibly degraded.

Commenting on the announcement from Carlsberg HQ in Copenhagen, Andraea Dawson-Shepherd, Senior Vice President for Corporate Affairs, said: "At Carlsberg we are firm believers in the importance of a circular economy in ensuring sustainable future growth and development on our planet, and today's announcement is excellent news. If the project comes to fruition, as 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."
