Bio-based cap: Product of the Day

By Kari Embree in Beverage Packaging on March 28, 2014

Manufactured using high density polyethylene (HDPE) derived from sugar cane, the bio-based version of TwistCap OSO 34 marks another step forward in Tetra Pak’s ambition to make fully renewable packages. In 2013, the company delivered 1.1 billion bio-caps globally, an increase of more than 80 percent over the previous year and 80 percent of the material in a 1-L Tetra Rex carton is paperboard, which is made from wood, a renewable resource. By introducing the new bio-based cap, the content of renewable material in the package increases by an additional 4 percent, helping to further improve the environmental performance of the package without compromising its functionality or recyclability. Tetra Pak customers using the standard TwistCap OSO 34 can easily transfer to the bio-based version without the need for any additional investment or modification to their existing filling machines.
