KIRIN BREWERY CO., LTD.

Summary

Kirin Brewery carries out biodegradable testing both on site and in collaboration with suppliers. On-site facilities include carbon dioxide production from soil microcosms. Kirin is also hoping to get Bionolle from Showa High Polymer for testing, but has not received any material to date. The company, which is heavily involved in primary and secondary food packaging, would like to use a renewable resource rather than a petroleum-based source for the production of packaging materials.
