DIAM closure has same footprint as cork
The DIAM wine closure has had its carbon footprint reduced by 12 per cent bringing it in line with its biggest competitor - natural cork.
Producer Oeneo Bouchage studied the impact of closures of the environment using the Carbon Appraisal method which revealed that the DIAM closure, with a PVC capsule, had a carbon footprint of 4,253 kg of equivalent CO2 per tonne. They undertook initiatives to reduce CO2 emissions in the production phase of the DIAM closure and have had them ratified by the French Environmental Agency.
The company has announced a restructured environmental policy designed to meet current and future environmental challenges.
