There are already paper straws, and now there will be Coca-Cola in an eco-bottle made of paper [FILM].

Last fall we learned that Coca-Cola was planning to launch paper bottles for its drinks in the near future, and now that vision is becoming a reality in a European country.

The Coca-Cola Company has ambitious future plans for reducing greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. It wants to do this in a very interesting way, through new bottles. Reducing CO2 emissions to the atmosphere is already a standard among global companies. Unfortunately, it is not enough to take better care of the environment. That’s why Coca-Cola decided to go a step further and use its customers to make itself more ecological and give us the satisfaction that we are doing something important for Mother Nature.

Last fall, engineers from Coca-Cola and the Danish company Paboco designed and created a new eco-friendly bottle in which carbonated beverages will soon be sold. The first prototype consists of 30 percent paper because it uses a layer of bio-based PEF. Ultimately, however, it is to be as much as 100 percent. It will not be easy to create such packaging, but engineers are not losing hope.

The Coca-Cola Company is proud to announce that the first European tests of paper bottles for its beverages will soon appear in Hungary. The project will be implemented as part of the World Without Waste initiative. The production of the bottles will be handled by Paboco (The Paper Bottle Company) established by ALPLA, a plastic packaging manufacturer, which will cooperate with BillerudKorsnäs, a Swedish paper manufacturer.

“Our goal is to create a paper bottle that can be recycled just like any other type of paper. This prototype is the first step towards achieving this great goal. The paper bottle offers completely new possibilities and we are convinced that it will play a huge role in the future. – said Stijn Franssen innovation manager in packaging research and development at Coca-Cola.

Coca-Cola’s ultimate goal is to completely eliminate plastic in its bottles. There is still a long way to go, but despite this fact, the company intends to increase the recycling of its cans and bottles over the next 10 years. The plan is to recycle as much packaging as is produced at one time. It should also be noted that the first prototype of a paper bottle can already be fully recycled.

Will this eco-friendly solution catch on? In fact, it will depend on the price of the drink in such a bottle and its taste. Let’s not deceive ourselves that taste is the most important thing, and advertised products without sugar, in fact, taste different from those sweetened with real sugar, although their producers try to convince us that it is different. The same will happen in the case of bio-packaging, such as a paper bottle, in which the drink will taste different.
