Avantium, ALPLA on PEF bottles

It has been awhile since the blog had an update from Avantium. The company announced last week its joint development agreement with major plastic converter ALPLA Werke Lehner GmbH for the development of PEF (polyethylene furanoate) bottles.

Avantium is expecting to bring 100% biobased PEF bottles to the market through its partnerships with Coca-Cola, Danone and now ALPLA by 2016. ALPLA will contribute its know-how in PET (polyethylene terephthalate) conversion, bottle design and bottle manufacturing.
