The company PepsiCo has developed a plastic bottle PET 100% renewable of vegetal origin - "the first", as the signing of these features-which allows the production of packaging of beverages with a significant reduction in CO2 emissions.

The 'green' bottle of PepsiCo is 100% recyclable and is made with vegetable raw, among which pasto rod, pine bark and shells of maize. In the future, the company expects to expand the natural resources to create their 'green' bottle with orange peel skin, skin of potatoes, oat husks and other by-products of agriculture and of their own business.

"This unprecedented innovation is part of the transformation and development of PepsiCo and the beverage industry, and a direct result of our commitment to research and development," said its President and CEO, Indra Nooyi. Through a combination of biological and chemical processes, PepsiCo has identified methods to create a molecular structure that is identical to the PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic based on oil, resulting in a bottle whose appearance and the content is equal to the of the existing PET containers.

PepsiCo will launch pilot production of the new bottle in 2012.
