Carlsberg plans to develop the world’s first fully bio-degradable and bio-based beer bottle. Made from impulse-dried wood fibers, the “Green Fiber Bottle” is a groundbreaking innovation and currently under development in a partnership between Carlsberg Group and partners ecoXpac, Technical University of Denmark and Innovation Fund Denmark. The project commenced in January 2015 and it is expected to take three years to develop the final product.

This is the first prototype of their bio-degradable bottle. Still looking and feeling very different from what the final product will be, the prototype does give an idea of what the future of beer bottles could be.
