CO2 retained by cork stoppers
How many cork stoppers can be produced with a tonne of cork?
Each tonne of thick cork planks can provide, on average, 66,700 cork stoppers.
The cork suppliers ignored the problems for too long, because they had a monopoly and they still haven’t fixed the problems. Have things really changed?
It is true that the cork industry as a whole was too slow in responding to the problem of TCA. That has all changed and a huge R&D effort is devoted to improving cork quality.
The emergence of alternative closures was a wake-up call to the cork industry. Competition has been good for quality.
The problem of TCA in cork has been effectively addressed, while problems with alternative closures persist; in fact, screwcap proponents are in denial about the problems being encountered.
