Materials and technologies for greenhouse gas reduction in packaging

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.

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.

Deadline: July 31, 2022

Amount Description

$25,000 USD is available for a proof-of-concept in 2022, with an additional $50,000-100,000 available for further development.
