Carlsberg Working On Paper Beer Bottles

This week, California announced it will ban those tiny plastic shampoo bottles in hotel rooms.

Now, Carlsberg beer says it wants to sell beer in bottles made of paper.

The Danish beer maker says it is working on two "Green Fibre Bottle" prototypes that will be 100-percent recyclable.

The brewer says it's been working with packaging companies on the design for the last five-years.

According to CNBC, " An 'inner barrier' is used to ensure the bottles can carry beer. One prototype uses a recycled polyethylene terephthalate polymer film barrier, which acts as a thin internal lining. The other uses what Carlsberg described as a '100% bio-based' polyethylene furanoate polymer film barrier."

One Carlsberg VP said “While we are not completely there yet, the two prototypes are an important step towards realizing our ultimate ambition of bringing this breakthrough to market.”
