compostable juice bottles

Compostable juice bottles made from plants are on the horizon. A plant-made bottle for a natural juice product is the ideal combination. We provide the preforms and locally the preforms can be blown in the correct shape/size bottle. Compostable closures for the bottles will also be provided. Different neck sizes and different preform sizes for the compostable juice bottles up to 2 liters, can be made. Production starts end of 2023 for the 38mm neck size preforms.

The future of plant-based bottles

Welcome to Our Sustainable World of Natural Juices and Eco-Friendly Packaging

We commend your passion for natural juices in eco-conscious packaging. This vision perfectly aligns with the rising demand for sustainable solutions in the ever-evolving food and beverage industry. We are excited to introduce our innovative product, which seamlessly combines plant-based bottles with compostable caps, providing a compelling alternative to conventional petroleum-based plastic packaging.

The Advantages of Plant-Based bottles:

  1. Environmental Friendliness: Our plant-based bottles help reduce the reliance on fossil fuels, effectively lowering the carbon footprint associated with juice production.

  2. Biodegradability: Our compostable caps and bottles offer an eco-friendly end-of-life disposal solution. They can be safely composted in industrial facilities, reducing waste and minimizing environmental impact.

  3. Recyclability: Not only are our bottles environmentally friendly, but they can also be recycled as mono-stream PLA, contributing to the development of a circular economy.

  4. Consumer Appeal: Sustainable packaging is becoming a compelling selling point for consumers who are increasingly aware of their environmental impact.

A Glimpse into Our Ongoing Innovations:

We are committed to continuous improvement and innovation. Our current focus is on the development of the 33mm cap and the 38mm preform. These forthcoming additions to our product lineup will offer a broader spectrum of options for juice producers, addressing the diverse market demands with utmost flexibility.

Applications in the Juice Industry:

As a response to the increasing requests for various bottle sizes, we have been diligently collaborating with our dedicated R&D team to introduce plant-based juice bottles. This initiative is set to revolutionize the juice industry by offering natural, sustainable containers that align with the industry’s evolving needs.

Unleashing Versatility:

In addition to our pioneering bottles and caps, we have expanded our offering to include plant-based full bottle shrink sleeves. This not only enhances the aesthetics of our bottles but also serves as an effective means of communicating sustainability to consumers. In today’s market, marketing your commitment to environmental responsibility is a powerful tool.

Our Journey Towards 100% Plant-Based Solutions:

Our unwavering dedication to creating a 100% plant-based compostable cap and label has been a challenging yet rewarding journey. Over nearly five years, we’ve persevered through trials and errors to reach this significant milestone. This achievement is a testament to our resolute commitment to sustainability.

Coming Soon: 38mm necksize Preform and Closure:

We’re delighted to announce that the PCO1810 preform and closure, designed for 500ml bottles, are now ready for mass production. Furthermore, we’re gearing up to introduce a 38mm neck size preform by 2024. This expansion in our product range will offer even more choices for beverage producers seeking sustainable packaging solutions.

In conclusion, our focus on natural juices and eco-friendly packaging is not only a commitment to environmental responsibility but also a catalyst for industry transformation. If you are interested in exploring the possibilities of our plant-based packaging for your juice products or need more detailed information, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Together, we can create a greener, more sustainable future for your brand and our planet.

Compostable juice bottles - HPP treatment

Research rapport: Suitability Assessment of PLA Bottles for High-Pressure Processing of Apple Juice
The aim of the study is to test the use of polylactic acid (PLA) bottles as an alternative to (PET) ones for high-pressure processing (HPP) of apple juice. The treatment of PLA bottles at 600 MPa for 3 min did not cause alterations in the packaging shape and content, confirming the suitability of PLA bottles to withstand HPP conditions as well as PET bottles.

The present study assessed the feasibility of employing PLA bottles as an alternative to PET ones, for the packaging and subsequent HPP treatment of apple juice. In a perspective of improving food chain sustainability, PLA and other bioplastics may replace conventional plastics for some specific uses, such as fresh and minimally processed products, offering sufficient performances able to maintain the shelf life standards. This study proved that PLA is a valid sustainable alternative to conventional PET bottles for the packaging and HPP treatment of apple juice due to its: (i) Biobased nature, (ii) compostability/recyclability, (iii) mechanical resistance and ability to restore the initial shape after HPP treatment, (iv) protection offered to the product, which is comparable with PET for short-term storage.

 

Our PLA bottles are ideal for closed-loop locations

We want to change the world. Show the world that it’s possible to step away from fossil plastic. We only sell our PLA preforms/ PLA bottles to partners that agree with our 90%-90% rule. 90% of the time 90% of our bottles are collected and sent the used bottles to the right end-of-life stream. 
Let’s work together and stop the polluting effect of fossil plastic bottles.

Ideal closed loop location

Our 90% - 90% rule

We distribute our plant-based biodegradable water bottles only within “closed-loop” venues, whereby used containers are collected on-site and undergo proper end-of-life processing. Our goal is to get 90% of the PLA bottles back after use, 90% of the time. Collecting the bottles and send them to the right end of life option. We, therefore, look at closed loop locations for our products.
A lot of locations can be set up as a close loop location. Some are better equipped than others to become a fully closed loop for our bottles. Ideal locations for a closed-loop are catering companies, events, restaurants, cruise lines, hospitals, airports, airlines.
Our PLA bottles have multiple end of life solutions. Every end of life has its own benefits and together with our clients, we decide per location the best end of life solution. We monitor the outcome of the collection and will support getting the highest returns of our plant-based bottles of water.

Becoming a partner for our PLA bottles

Does your company need to lower CO2, create a circular environment, lower costs for waste pickup and become single-use plastic free? We supply a full package to create all of this in a closed-loop situation.
With a combination of our unique bio plastic products, other compostable products and our special digester machines we can create this solution for your location. Our digester will compost all bio-plastics and all food waste within 24/48 hours into liquid compost that can be stored and sprayed over the land or transported into the sewage system if needed. This way locations all over the world can be made more environmentally friendly without the need for an external waste facility.
With our solution you can create your own closed-loop location.
