Suntory To Switch To Bottles Made From Renewable Plant-Based Resins By 2030

May 28, 2019: 12:00 AM EST
As companies globally increase efforts to reduce plastic waste, Suntory Holdings says it plans to make all of its plastic bottles from renewable materials like resins and other plant-based components by 2030. Suntory’s bottles now are made from 10 percent PET (polyethylene terephthalate) resin from recycled plastic bottles. It will raised that to 60 percent to 70 percent by 2030, and make up the remainder with plant-based resin from pine trees and sugarcane residue. To meet its goal, Suntory is investing $457.5 million in a U.S. factory with Anellotech of New York. Mass production will begin in 2023, with soft drinks in bottles made from 100 percent plant matter available in 2024.[Image Credit: © Suntory Holdings Limited]
