Packaging from beer brewing waste
A bio-based, compostable packaging solution
“If the contents last only a few moments, why should the wrappers last an eternity?” (Outlander Materials)
Sustainable packaging and beer brewing? Outlander Materials have discovered that there is a valuable link. Using excess produced from beer brewing, they are developing a new bio-based packaging solution aimed at being compostable. On top of being sustainable, this packaging is also highly functional, extending the shelf life of products. You can even print it or interestingly, simply eat it.
