On The Horizon: Beer Bottles Made Of Recyclable Wood Fiber

September 18, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Danish brewer Carlsberg Group has partnered with a company pioneering wood fiber packaging technology with a view to using recyclable and biodegradable fiber bottles for beer storage. EcoXpac of Denmark has come up with a sleek bottle design that resembles a traditional beer bottle in the Carlsberg beer colors and labeling. A key technical hurdle to overcome, however, is the need for a secondary barrier inside the fiber bottle that would keep the beer-filled bottle standing in shape for a long time. Scientists at Carlsberg and ecoXpac say they are close to solving the problem.
