Is the cost of paper bottles higher than plastic Food Packaging Bottle ?
All paper products used for packaging usually have a premium of 10-20 cents per piece. This is a major challenge hindering the adoption of paper packaging. To overcome this problem, the industry has been adopting a wider range of raw materials by using agricultural waste fibers as well as hardwood and softwood fibers. It is hoped that by using waste fiber, the company can achieve more sustainability and reduce costs, thereby reducing the price premium of the product.
Which other beverage markets may be susceptible to changes from plastic bottles to paper bottles?
Bottled water is another beverage market facing the potential penetration of alternative materials such as paper bottles. However, aluminum bottles and cans seem to dominate as alternatives to plastic rather than paper.
Should plastic bottle suppliers be nervous?
No, at least in the near future, paper bottles are extremely unlikely to destroy plastic bottles on a large scale. In the long run, I think recycling technology will be significantly improved, thereby increasing the recycling rate of plastic bottles and other plastic packaging, thereby realizing a circular economy of plastics. With this, any alternative materials are unlikely to disrupt the plastics industry.
What are the technical challenges facing paper bottles?
The inside of the paper bottle needs a coating or plastic lining to provide a moisture barrier and resistance to other environmental factors. Although the company claims that these layers can be easily separated to achieve recyclability, we doubt these claims in view of the challenges of recycling plastic liner paper today and the company’s not using any technology to achieve this separation.
In addition, the caps and closures of these paper bottles are made of aluminum or plastic, so they need to be separated and sent to different recycling streams-this is highly dependent on effective collection and sorting, so once again we doubt the scrap disposal Success rate.
Many companies are adopting solutions to the plastic waste problem; however, they have brought a new set of sustainability challenges. All alternative material solutions have a separate set of problems; therefore, they just divert the packaging problem. Therefore, paper packaging will continue to increase the adoption rate, but it will never pose a major threat to plastics.
Therefore, for us Jinfu, our main industry is the production of plastic-related products. We have many plastic bottles including 100ml Plastic Spray Bottle. You are welcome to come and buy.
