The Brazilian factory will be located in Araraquara, Sao Paulo. The great sustainable innovation is that cane sugar produced in the same region will be used in the PlantBottle production. Another interesting fact is that the by-products of the process will be used in the production of packaging resin. This will reduce the tons of carbon dioxide that pollute the environment.

Thanks to this initiative, Brazil will become the largest producer and exporter of BioMeg the world, with an estimated production capacity of 500,000 tons per year. The venture is expected to generate 1,650 direct and indirect jobs.  Coca Cola aims to have only recyclable packaging designs in its portfolio by 2015.
