NaturALL Bottle Alliance to Develop 100% Bio-Based Bottles
Danone and Nestlé Waters, the world’s two largest bottled water companies, have joined forces with Origin Materials, a start-up based in Sacramento, California, to form the NaturALL Bottle Alliance . Together, the three partners aim to develop and launch at commercial scale a PET* plastic bottle made from bio-based material, i.e. 100% sustainable and renewable resources. The project uses biomass feedstocks, such as previously used cardboard and sawdust, so it does not divert resources or land from food production for human or animal consumption. The technology represents a scientific breakthrough for the sector, and the Alliance aims to make it available to the entire food and beverage industry.
