Nomacorc Wine Bottle Closure Uses Braskem’s Green Polyethylene

Select BioAlternative wine bottle closures producer Nomacorc says it’s the first company to create a plant-based closure, Select Bio.

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.

  1. There is another 100% bio product for sealing wine bottles: cork. Increasing numbers of people in Europe are boycotting bottles with metal caps and synthetic sealings. Cork – you know it makes sense.

    & for the dolts that say that cork can spoil wine, I only buy wine with cork stoppers & less than 1 bottle in 200 is spoiled – I can manage that
