Purpose and goal

The purpose of the Green Straw Bottle project is to create a sustainable paper bottle from wheat straw for the beer market with positive climate footprints and biodegradable. The raw material should be derived from wheat straw treated with enzymes in a new and more sustainable process that replaces wood-based cellulose derived from chemical sulphate process. The goals are - Develop and optimize an EWSP cellulose from straw suitable for beer and other beverages.

Expected results and effects

End-users in the beverage industry will present a biodegradable straw paper from a straw as a true circular product.-Develop a smooth, thin and impermeable microscopic surface coating on micro to nano and apply the Green Straw Bottle through new technology, achieve the necessary properties for food drinks, including 100% effective gas barrier. - The GSB document meets food standards, biodegradability and can achieve cradle to cradle certification.
