It’s said to be the first bottle manufactured with this material to resemble the traditional 750-mL glass bottles for wine. According to Matarromera, it’s lighter (50 g), fully-recyclable, and has a lower environmental impact in its manufacturing process.
AIMPLAS, the Plastics Technology Centre, has been subcontracted by Bodega Matarromera to design the new sustainable packages as well as the preform and stretch blow molding tools. An inner coating of silicon oxide improves the bottle’s oxygen barrier properties.
This project has counted on the funds of the programme EEA GRANTS, funded by Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein, as well as by the Ministry of Science and Innovation from Spain through CDTI. The research is framed within the company’s commitment with environmental sustainability.
