  • Carlsberg to develop biodegradable wood-fiber bottle for beverages.

    26.01.2015

    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”.

    carlsbergAll 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 that Carlsberg is a firm believer in the importance of a circular economy as a means to ensure sustainable future growth and development on theplanet. “This announcement is excellent news,” she commented. “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.”

    This latest initiative forms part of the Carlsberg Circular Community (CCC), a cooperation between Carlsberg and selected partners whose aim is to pursue a circular, zero-waste economy by using the Cradle to Cradle® (C2C®) framework when developing and marketing new products. The CCC currently comprises six founding partners, with two new partners, ecoXpac and 1HQ (a global branding agency), announced today. Its goal is to have 15 partners by 2016. (KL)
