Coca-Cola Invests In Bioglycol Production To Boost Production Of Plant-Based Plastic Bottles

September 27, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Coca-Cola says it is working with a large bioglycol production company to expand the output of plant-based material used to make its PlantBottles. JBF Industries will support the endeavor by building the world’s largest facility for manufacturing bioglycol, the key ingredient in PlantBottles. The new facility will be built in Brazil and will use  locally sourced sugar cane and sugar cane waste material. Coca-Cola’s goal is to boost the use of renewable, lower-carbon plastics in the marketplace. It hopes to use PlantBottle technology in all of its plastic bottles by 2020.
