Nestlé and Danimer Scientific will collaborate to develop bio-based resins for Nestlé’s water business.
Nestlé and Danimer Scientific will collaborate to develop bio-based resins for Nestlé’s water business.

Nestlé and Danimer Scientific, a leading developer and manufacturer of biodegradable plastic products, announced a global partnership to develop biodegradable bottles.

In 2018, the University of Georgia (U.S.A.) confirmed in a study that Danimer Scientific’s PHA polymer Nodax is an effective biodegradable alternative to petrochemical plastics.

Nestlé and Danimer Scientific will collaborate to design and manufacture bio-based resins for Nestlé’s water business using Nodax. PepsiCo, an existing partner of Danimer, may also gain access to the resins developed under this collaboration.

"Researchers have shown that PHA biodegrades in a wide range of environments, including industrial and home compost, soil, fresh and sea water," said Stephen Croskrey, CEO of Danimer Scientific. "As a material that is reliably biodegradable across both aerobic and anaerobic conditions, our Nodax PHA is an ideal fit to drive the creation of eco-friendly packaging for Nestlé’s products.

In 2018, Nestlé announced its commitment to make 100% of its packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025. To achieve this goal, the company has already undertaken several initiatives including the creation of the Nestlé Institute of Packaging Sciences.

This institute is dedicated to the discovery and development of functional, safe and environmentally friendly packaging solutions including functional paper and biodegradable materials.

Stefan Palzer, Chief Technology Officer for Nestlé said, "Strategic innovation partnerships play a key role for Nestlé as we make progress in improving the sustainability of our packaging. In order to effectively address the plastic issue in various markets, we need a wide range of technological solutions, including new paper materials and biodegradable polymers which can also be recycled."
