Origin isn’t touting this innovation as the first-ever PET cap, but rather an option that’s not commonly available in the market and could be transformational for the sector, Bissell said.

“It’s not as though we’re the first people ever to try to make a PET cap for bottles. ... It’s that they weren’t successful for a variety of reasons,” Bissell said. “That’s what we really solve — we’re processing the material differently so that we can get to a cap economically that fits to an 1881 standard bottle.”
Tethering caps to the bottle is one way to ensure they’re recovered, and the concept is included in EU single-use plastic legislation set to take effect next year. Tethering keeps the cap affixed to the bottle with the plastic tamper-evident band once a user breaks the band upon opening the bottle. Tetra Pak is among the companies preemptively introducing tethered caps, as is Berry Global via a partnership with Coca-Cola. Bissell said tethering will be an option for Origin’s PET cap customers.

Bissell said the plants for manufacturing Origin’s PET caps will be different from the company’s biomass-based PET component plants
