Yes, this is an interesting feather in the quivver of the cork producers.
But did you happen to see the amounts? "The production of screwcaps gives off over 10kg of CO2 per tonne compared with 2.5kg of CO2 per tonne for corks..."
Per TONNE? Whoa. Yes screwcaps are 4x more carbon intensive to manufacture but how many are in a TONNE--100,000?!? And the marginal difference between tonnes is the equivalent to two cheeseburgers--starting to seem like a pretty trivial difference...
