PepsiCo

Background

PepsiCo has set out to achieve 100% RCBR (recyclable, compostable, biodegradable or reusable) compliance in packaging by 2025 and a 40% reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2030. Many of our packaging types are already considered recyclable (e.g., PET bottles, aluminum cans, glass packaging). But to reach our goals we must reduce greenhouse gas emissions over the course of the packaging’s entire lifecycle.

Project Description

We are seeking technologies that will reduce GHG emissions during packaging production or over the entire lifecycle of PET bottles, aluminum cans, and glass packaging (and other types of packaging) without sacrificing packaging quality.

Solutions of interest may include:

● Highly functional materials, additives, or coatings that improve packaging properties (e.g., barrier, mechanical properties). and therefore, can enable light weighting.

● Additives or coatings that reduce energy usage during packaging production resulting in lower GHG emissions

● Packaging production processes with reduced energy usage

Must-Haves:

● Food safe materials (capable of achieving regulatory approval)

● Does not negatively impact recycling of package

● Clear and colorless (for PET bottles)

NIce-to-Haves:

● FDA food contact approved

● Cost parity with incumbent packaging

● Solutions for returnable and retort-ready glass packaging

● Does not impact organoleptic or sensory attributes of contents

Out of scope:

● Achieving GHG reduction solely by conversion to renewable energy

● Traditional light weighting technologies

● Any nonrecyclable materials

Preferred Collaboration Types:

·PepsiCo is open to a range of collaboration types

PepsiCo’s Desired Timeline

·Preferable to complete proof of concept within 6-18 months.

Resources Available when collaborating with PepsiCo

·Access to PepsiCo expertise - Work directly with PepsiCo’s team of scientists and engineers with deep experience in materials science, packaging and bringing new products to market at massive scale.
