NEPP

A new generation beverage carton

The goal of the NEPP project is to develop and demonstrate a new generation beverage carton, and the processes needed to produce it. The beverage carton will have significant improvements in terms of environmental impact and recyclability.

By developing, producing and offering cartons with positive step changes in environmental impact and recyclability, Elopak will meet society’s and consumers’ demand for more environmentally friendly beverage containers.
