Asian moulded fibre packaging production company RyPax and Scotland-based CelluComp have unveiled a new all-fibre bottle solution.
The new bottle features an interior coating that provides a biodegradable and renewable solution for a widely used packaging design.
Both the companies worked together to develop a new pulp fibre using a combination of Curran, bamboo, and bagasse.
CelluComp CEO Christian Kemp-Griffin said: “Integrating RyPax’s and CelluComp’s proven technology, materials and production expertise to produce the industry’s first all-fibre bottle at scale is a major evolution for the industry.”
This innovation is expected to help manufacturers advance environmental packaging by eliminating the requirement for plastic liners.
The new bottle features an advanced finish that is anticipated to attract luxury brands in the beverage, beauty, and cosmetic industries, stated RyPax.

RyPax and CelluComp have been working together for over three years to develop a commercial all-fibre bottle format, and they recently received validation from the Danish Technological Institute (DTI).
Meanwhile, the partnership aims to scale production for various industry applications, including beverages, beauty, health, medicine, food, and retail brands.
The companies will work with DTI to further assess fibre packaging solutions, including fibre screw threads, caps, even thinner coatings, and intricate branding methods on bottles.
RyPax CEO Alvin Lim said: “Combining our global expertise in fibre packaging design and production with CelluComp’s innovative ingredient solution, we are making a genuine breakthrough in barrier packaging.
“This initiative will remove millions of tonnes of plastic waste from the environment.”
