Corona replacing plastic six-pack rings

Another major beer brand has innovated to replace plastic aggregation rings in its packaging portfolio. Earlier this year Carlsberg announced its novel use of adhesives to glue cans together with the new Snap Pack. Now the Mexican brand Corona has unveiled its alternative approach: becoming the first global beer brand to use an aggregator based made from plant-based biodegradable fibres, with a mix of by-product waste and compostable materials. If left in the environment, the new rings will break down into organic material, thus eliminating the risk associated with unrecycled polyethylene six-pack rings of lingering in the natural environment and photodegrading into microplastics. The bio-based rings will be piloted initially in Mexico in the new year.
