小编摘要:打开葡萄酒瓶的“砰”的一声也许就要成为过去,因为英国的一位发明家发明了纸质的葡萄酒瓶!

导读:发明家马丁正在与超市商谈,也许明年超市就将开始使用他的绿色环保酒瓶。这种酒瓶的含碳量仅为玻璃酒瓶的十分之一,而英国每年就需要使用12亿个这样的酒瓶。纸质酒瓶的另一优点在于它数周之内就能降解。不仅如此,纸质酒瓶不会摔破而且轻便便宜。

The familiar clink of a wine bottle could become a thing of the past after a British inventor created one made from paper.

Martin Myerscough is in talks with supermarkets to use his environmentally friendly Greenbottle from early next year.

The bottle, made of papier mache, has a carbon footprint just 10 per cent of a glass wine bottle – of which the UK uses 1.2billion a year.

The Greenbottle can also biodegrade on a compost heap within weeks.

Mr Myerscough, from Suffolk, has already invented cardboard milk bottles that are on sale at Asda. He said: ‘We’re hopeful the success we’ve had can be repeated with wine.’

The wine does not come into contact with the paper but is held in a plastic liner, similar to that of a wine box.

Wine expert Gerard Basset OBE, who runs the hotel TerraVina in Hampshire and won the title of World’s Best Sommelier in 2010, said: 'If the packaging will save time, money and is better for the environment, why not?

'But I expect it will only find favour with inexpensive, commodity wine.

'I can’t imagine it will ever take off for fine wine.’

Other advantages of the bottles is that they do not break when dropped, and weigh less in a shopping bag.

The cardboard shell also helps insulate white wine after it has been chilled in the fridge.

While in some countries, wine is available in Tetra-Pak containers, these are difficult to recycle Mr Myerscough said.
