Biobased milk jug: 20% reduction CO2
The big Dutch milk industry FrieslandCampina, introduced a new, bio-based beverage milk jug.
Within 1,5 year, this new jug, will be obtainable, starting with fresh milk and buttermilk.
This step can work as a flywheel for other industries, because the technology will be accessible to everyone.
The cardboard was already renewable. But now they optimized the proces of the coating and cap. These will be made of certified polyethylene made from organic waste materials.
With this renewable carton, the CO2 footprint of the bio-based milk jug will be 20% lower than before. The introduction of this bio-based jug fits perfectly within the movement to a circular economy, because the raw materials are completely reusable.
