COPENHAGEN, Denmark — Danish brewer Carlsberg says it is developing a paper beer bottle made from sustainably sourced wood fibers.

The inside barriers are made of polymers but Carlsberg said it is trying to create a bottle made entirely of bio-materials, without polymers.

The prototypes are part of the company’s efforts to have zero carbon emissions at its breweries and reduce by 30% the carbon footprint across its value chain by 2030.
