Tetra Pak Carton Uses 100% Plant-Based Materials
The new Tetra Rex carton will be the first in the market to have bio-based low-density polyethylene (LDPE) films and bio-based high-density polyethylene (HDPE) caps, both derived from sugar cane, in addition to Forest Stewardship Council-certified paperboard, the company says.
Developed in partnership with Braskem, a biopolymers producers, the new Tetra Rex package will be commercially available in early 2015.
Tetra Pak customers using the standard 1-liter Tetra Rex with TwistCap OSO 34 can transfer to the new version without the need for any additional investment or modification to their existing filling machines, the company says.
