Biodegradable cap for beverage bottles

The first biodegradable closures for beverage bottles have been made from a compostable thermoplastic - Mater-Bi produced by Novamont. Tests have shown that these new closures, namely BioCap®, exhibit oxygen permeation rates comparable to those of conventional high-density polyethylene caps. They are compliant with the European Union environmental directive 2002/95/EC on the Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS).
