First zero carbon footprint closure

08 May 2013

Nomacorc,  a producer of alternative wine closures has introduced what it claims to be the world's first zero carbon footprint wine closure, Select Bio. Made with plant-based polymers derived from sugar cane, the closure will be available for the 2014 bottling season.
 
Engineered to be the best closure solution for sustainable wineries and their wines, Select Bio closures will be 100 percent recyclable and made using renewable, plant-based materials. The company says Select Bio will minimise the environmental impact of wines by preventing spoilage and waste from wine faults such as oxidation and reduction.
