Bangor University capping off work on eco-conscious paper whisky bottle

Consumers could soon be pouring whisky out of a paper bottle, with a sustainable packaging project nearing completion at Bangor University.

It’s been an absolute pleasure and advantage working alongside the talented individuals at Bangor University’s Biocomposites Centre.

Their knowledge and experience in the field of assessing end of life of materials has become an indispensable extension of our team here at Pulpex.

Rob added: “This is a massive step forward and we are excited to continue working further with industry to share our expertise around biocomposites and sustainable packaging, so that industry can go on to develop suitable and sustainable solutions which reduce plastic usage globally.
