Swedish R&D company PulPac (Gothenburg; www.pulpac.com) has launched The Bottle Collective programme with professional services firm PA Consulting (London; www.paconsulting.com) to promote and industrialise the development of packaging made from PulPac’s proprietary Dry Molded Fiber process.

The company uses renewable pulp and cellulose resources to make fibre packaging to replace plastic in single-use bottle applications. PulPac’s process is said to have an 80% lower carbon footprint at similar cost as PET, require no energy for drying and little water, and the resulting material is recyclable in the paper waste stream and meets global regulatory requirements.

The first bottle prototypes have been produced, and the company said multiple leading brand partners have joined the collective with a view to release the bottle at scale by 2025.

The material can be used to create custom bottles that meet specific requirements for a range of goods, including water, dairy products, non-carbonated soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, detergents, and personal care articles.

Last year, PulPac and PA Consulting established the Blister Pack Collective to develop a fibre-based alternative to PVC blister packs.
