Tetra Pak: PE caps for liquid cartons
In partnership with Brazilian petrochemical company Braskem, Tetra Pak’s “green” polyethylene caps for liquid cartons are made from sugarcane derivatives.
Two popular milk brands are currently using Tetra Brik Aseptic packages using the "green" PE StreamCap 1000, increasing the company’s environmental performance of its products.
The company is launching "green" alternatives for three additional caps: the DreamCap 26, the LightCap 30, and the Helicap 27. The “green” caps will be distinguished from the original caps by a leaf logo, embossed on the cap.
