CCEP To Invest In Technology That Converts Air To Sugar

Bottling group Coca-Cola Europacific Partners (CCEP) has teamed up with the University of California, Berkeley (UCB) to develop scalable methods of converting captured CO2 into sugar.

CCEP Ventures, the group's innovation investment platform, will initially support the Peidong Yang Research Group conduct further research on enabling the production of sugar from CO₂ on site and at an industrial level.

Agricultural ingredients, including sugar, account for close to a quarter of CCEP’s carbon footprint.

The new technology could reduce emissions associated with sugar manufacturing processes and positively contribute to optimising land use.

In the longer-term, this technology has the potential to make the conversion of CO₂ into PET plastic more efficient by reducing the need for crude oil in the manufacturing process and significantly lowering costs, CCEP noted.
