Beer

brand Carls­berg is in the de­vel­op­ment stages of cre­at­ing a range of beer bot­tles made from pa­per. The Dan­ish beer com­pany un­veiled two pro­to­types for what it claims will be the world’s first pa­per beer bot­tle. The pro­to­types for its Green Fi­bre Bot­tle are made from sus­tain­ably-sourced wood fi­bre and fea­ture an in­ner bar­rier that al­lows them to con­tain liq­uid. One of the pro­to­types uses a thin re­cy­cled PET plas­tic poly­mer film, while the other uses a 100% bio-based PEF plas­tic poly­mer film, both of which Carls­berg says it will now use to test the bar­rier tech­nol­ogy. Its am­bi­tion is to even­tu­ally cre­ate a 100% biobased bot­tle with­out poly­mers, an aim which forms part of Carls­berg’s wider sus­tain­abil­ity goals to achieve zero car­bon emis­sions at its brew­eries.
