Bodega Matarromera has developed the first PLA wine bottle designed by AIMPLAS

botella MatarromeraBodega Matarromera has successfully completed the development of a new sustainable bottle for their wines. It is a packaging manufactured from bioplastic, specifically PLA, and it is the first bottle manufactured with this material to reproduce the design of traditional glass bottles for wine, with some main advantages: it is lighter (50 grams) fully-recyclable and has a lower environmental impact in its manufacturing process.

AIMPLAS, the Plastics Technology Centre, has been subcontracted by Bodega Matarromera among this project to design the new sustainable packages, as well as the preform mould and the blowing mould of these sustainable bottles. Then, it has also carried out the characterisation of the new packaging that, thanks to an inner coating with silicon oxide it has been noted a considerable improvement of the permeability to different gases.

This project has counted on the funds of the programme EEA GRANTS, funded by Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein, as well as by the Ministry of Science and Innovation from Spain through CDTI. The research is framed within the company’s commitment with environmental sustainability, what will allow a differentiation and increase of competitiveness in new markets with a high environmental awareness as well, as the Nordic countries and specifically the Scandinavian airlines.

The institute is member of FEDIT (Spanish Federation of Innovation and Technology Entities) and REDIT (Network of Technological Institutes of the Valencia Region).

AIMPLAS is a non-profit research association with the object to operate as a technological partner for enterprises from the plastics industry and thus offering them integral and customized solutions by coordinating research, development and innovation projects as well as technology services (analysis and testing, technical assistance, formation as well as competitive and strategic intelligence).
