Carlsberg to trial biofuel-powered glass bottles

February 17, 2021 |

In Denmark, Carlsberg Marston’s Brewing Company to trial glass bottles with up to 90% lower carbon impact. The partnership with glass bottle supplier, Encirc, allows Carlsberg Marston’s Brewing Company to take another step towards Carlsberg Group’s ZERO carbon footprint ambition with a trial demonstrating the possibility to cut the carbon impact of glass bottles by up to 90%. The trial with glass bottle supplier, Encirc, uses 100% biofuel and increases recycled content of the bottles to 100% while maintaining quality.

Glass bottles account for around 10% of the total beer-in-hand emissions (the full value chain) for CMBC. This trial has significant potential to support the brewer’s target to cut emissions across its value chain as part of Carlsberg Group’s Together Towards ZERO program. The carbon impact of each bottle is cut by up to 90%, with potential to transform the bottle from the highest-carbon-impact packaging type to the lowest.
