Coke rolling out bottles made from plant materials

17/11/2009


Coca-Cola Co. beverages will soon be arriving in new plastic bottles made partially from plant materials

Drinks bottled in the new PlantBottle packaging are being sent to store shelves in select worldwide markets, the company said Nov. 16.
Atlanta-based Coke plans to produce 2 billion of the special PET bottles by the end of 2010.
PlantBottle packaging is currently made through a process that turns sugar cane and molasses, a by-product of sugar production, into a key component for PET resin. The sugar cane being used comes from predominantly rain-fed crops that were processed into ethanol, not refined sugar. Ultimately, the company’s goal is to use non-food, plant-based waste, such as wood chips or wheat stalks, to produce PET bottles.
