Carlsberg has revealed the latest Carlsberg Circular Community initiative to create the world’s first 100% biodegradable cardboard bottle at the world economic forum in Davos, Switzerland.
Every single material used to create the bottle will be developed using bio-based and biodegradable materials, mainly using sustainably sourced wood-fibres, which will allow the bottle to be responsibly degraded.
The three-year project partners with packaging company ecoXpac, with the collaboration of Innovation Fund Denmark and the Technical University of Denmark, to create a biodegradable and biobased bottle made from sustainably sourced wood-fibre, branded as the “Green Fiber Bottle”.
“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.” – Andraea Dawson-Shepherd, Senior VP of Corporate Affairs, Carlsberg
