Water bottler boosts production using PET bottling line
Apemin Tusnad has invested in Sidel's complete PET line. Changing market demands and the company's sustainability goals were driving factors in the investment. The investment should see 5% less plastic used for each bottle while maintaining a high standard of hygiene, thanks to the use of Sidel's Combi SF300 solution.
Apemin Tusnad, founded in 1999, is one of Romania's primary mineral water bottlers and has invested widely in technology and production capacity. It uses mineral water from Romanian volcanic mountains as its source for its three product brands, Tusnad, Artesia and Izvorul Ascuns.
As Apemin Tusnad places emphasis on the environmental health of its water sources, it sees Sidel as a viable partner thanks to its technology offering useful advances in sustainability and hygiene. The bottling process — forming, filling and closing the bottles — is fully automated in a controlled system, thereby reducing human contact and sources of contamination.
Fewer components and functions will also reduce the carbon footprint of the operation while shorter neck finishes and lightweight preforms lead to reduced plastic usage.
The new line, running at a rate of 18,000 bottles per hour, is designed to boost Apemin Tusnad’s production by 40%.
