Beer bottles made of paper could be a reality soon
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.
