KHS Group returnable PET bottle
The KHS Group, together with Austrian packaging specialist ALPLA, has developed a lightweight, returnable PET container, weighing 55 g.
The 1 L bottle has a high recyclate content of 35%, and by optimising the bottle base and neck, KHS reduced the weight of the bottle, compared to conventional returnable PET containers. This optimisation means that the bottle uses less material than conventional PET containers, while reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions during transportation.
Despite less use of materials, the returnable system is suitable for a high circulation. The PET bottle has good resistance to caustic products, thereby maintaining its quality and appearance even after numerous washing cycles.
The optimised preforms can be blown on all KHS stretch blow moulders for returnable containers. These include the InnoPET Blomax Series V.
The packaging system is suitable for all types of beverages in the returnable container segment.
