On the eve of the FachPack 2015 in Nuremberg, Krones was awarded the German Packaging Prize for its "Bevkeg" packaging idea in the beverage sales package category.

The Bevkeg is a concept in the market for non-returnable PET beverage kegs. Depending on the output class involved, it can be supplied in two different variants, firstly as a preform and secondly as a container that is rolled up following the blow-moulding process and correspondingly compressed.

Hence transportation to the filling company should be optimised, and in addition, by reason of the low internal volume, the amount of CO2 flushing before the filling process should be reduced.

The central contact partner and vendor for the Bevkeg container unit is the Krones subsidiary KIC Krones. The machinery and systems technology required for filling, labelling and palletising the Bevkegs comes from Krones, while the brewery or the restaurateur gets the Bevmate tapping technology from Micro Matic, a company specialising in tapping systems.
