The wine closure uses biopolymers producer Braskem’s I’m green Polyethylene, made from sugarcane ethanol. For each ton produced, “green” polyethylene sequestrates more than 2 tons of CO2, Braskem says.
Additionally, Select Bio closures are 100 percent recyclable.
The closures mirror Nomacorc’s current Select Series portfolio in oxygen management performance, minimizing the environmental impact of wines by preventing spoilage and waste from wine faults such as oxidation and reduction. Select Bio delivers the right amount of oxygen into the bottle using a carbon neutral closure, Nomacorc says.
