Coca-Cola is one of the most successful companies in the world.

Millions of people around the world have used coca-cola in all its presentations for several decades now.

However, the company has adapted over time to the needs of the market, and today, in the middle of 2020, it is planning to take an important step towards caring for the environment.

How will do? With a 100% biodegradable bottle.

The company is confident that, in the short term, it will be able to replace its plastic containers with paper bottles, which will aim to contribute to the environment, among other things.

100% paper bottles: Get to know the new coca-cola prototype with which the environment will benefit

  • Coca-Cola is preparing a packaging prototype made entirely of paper with which it hopes to reduce the waste caused by its conventional packaging
  • It is a paper bottle that is expected to replace plastic bottles in the short term.
  • Under the ‘World Without Waste’ initiative, the company hopes to have an effective plan to reduce waste by 2030

Although Coca-Cola is a company that has great relevance in America, especially in countries like the United States and Mexico, Europe has been the continent that has taken one of the most important steps to the company.

Recently, Coca-Cola Europe unveiled a project with which it plans to create bottles made 100% of paper.

It is a prototype that they have designed and put into operation with the help of the Paboco company and its subsidiaries; currently, paper bottles are in an early stage.

According to Stijn Franssen, Coca-Cola’s Director of Packaging Innovation, the company has big plans with this project.

According to the stated objectives, Coca-Cola’s main plan is based on a vision to create a paper container that can be recycled in a conventional way.

Speaking to the press, Franssen stated that “A paper bottle opens up a whole new world of possibilities, and we are confident that paper packaging will play an important role in the future.”

A 100% paper bottle, but can you do without plastic?

Coca-Cola executives have indicated that the company’s decision is to create a paper bottle that is friendly to the environment; however, some small percentage of plastic may still be used in them.

This in no way reduces Coca-Cola’s options, as Franssen also explained that “This prototype consists of a paper cover with a plastic lid and inner plastic liner. The plastic we use is made entirely from recycled plastic that can also be recycled after use. “

The next step, according to Franssen? Find a solution to create a paper bottle without the inner plastic liner.

The reason why it is still expected to include recycled plastic in the manufacture of paper bottles is because they must adhere to the highest safety and quality standards of any other world-class company.

The executive mentioned that Coca-Cola is in a stage of laboratory tests to analyze the operation of this new bottle when it is placed inside the refrigerator; Between these tests, its resistance and its ability to protect the liquid inside will be determined.

“We also take into account the way in which our consumers will react to the launch of this paper bottle,” he concluded.

There is still a long way to go, but very soon Coca-Cola will define where it will make its new paper bottle and the process it will require to recycle the plastic that will be included in it.

An eco-friendly initiative will include the creation of a bottle made entirely of plastic

The idea on which the company starts is to respond to a sustainability initiative known as ‘World Without Waste’.

With it, it is planned that by 2030 it will be possible to collect and recycle a bottle or can of Coca-Cola for each one that the company sells.

The initiative will also seek to completely replace those packaged with 100% materials. recyclable.

The company’s vision is focused on creating a bottle that can be recycled, so its initial prototype will be a big step toward achieving its long-term purposes.

Although this plan is expected to be profitable and successful, there is still a long way to go before finding a prototype of the paper bottle that can be manufactured and marketed not only in Europe, but in the rest of the world.

Coca-cola’s conventional plastic bottle will soon be replaced with 100% recyclable plastic containers.

The creation of a bottle of Coca-Cola made 100% of paper will be of great benefit to the environment, since, according to experts, every minute the company produces around 200,000 bottles around the world.

In conclusion, Fanssen hinted that this prototype bottle will help create a vision of recycling that meets quality standards worldwide, but can also be recycled and handled comfortably by the user.

The executive concluded by saying that “This is part of a path towards creating sustainable packaging solutions, so that people enjoy their beverages in a way that is good for them and that is good for our planet.”
