Coca-Cola paper bottle, Pampers biodiapers, Twist Bioscience’s DNA art launching to space, bioplastic PPE, and more: The Digest’s Top 8 Innovations for the week of November 5th

November 4, 2020 |

Big news from big companies this week with mega-brand Coca-Cola revealing an initial prototype for a paper bottle it hopes can be recycled with household paper recycling streams, Pampers diaper-brand’s new Pampers Pure line features a plant-based liner enriched with 100% renewable shea butter, Twist Bioscience converts art into DNA for launch into space, and bioengineering company Kalion received $5.7 million in US Department of Energy funding to work with the Agile BioFoundry to advance biobased glucaric acid.

In today’s Digest, startups are making strides too, and while the election coverage may distract us, let’s not forget there is still a global COVID-19 pandemic going on, but a paramedic brother inspires a designer to develop bioplastic PPE, face shields, using food waste and flowers from the city’s parks. Check out this week’s Top 8 Innovations!
