Relevant sustainability aspects combined in one bottle

KHS, Hall13, Booth H75

KHS presents a new PET concept based on the juice bottle as an example. It combines individual environmentally friendly packaging solutions in one container and thereby supports the theory of circular economy.

Kai Acker, CEO of KHS, emphasises the continuously growing demand in the food and beverage industry for packaging solutions that support efficient production processes and at the same time contribute to the protection of the environment while maintaining a high level of product protection.

With this in mind, a new PET bottle was developed, which will be presented for the first time at the K show. The company combines various disciplines of its know-how to create a unique container. With this concept, KHS is pursuing its strategy of reduction, recycling and reuse and for this purpose has concluded a partnership with an environmental service provider. Compared to conventional PET containers, the system provider’s new approach is claimed to ensure a high level of product protection and a longer shelf life, in particular for sensitive beverages. Moreover, these bottles are completely recyclable and conserve on additional resources.

The fact that system provider KHS at the same time designs the entire process chain efficiently and sustainably is also demonstrated by its line solutions for PET processing. These systems are not only able to effectively process recycled plastic, they are also hallmarked by energy and resource efficiency – from the stretch blow moulder to palletiser.

With the Bottles & Shapes program, KHS is also furthering its developments along the entire production chain. Not only the initial ideas, drawings and 3D animations are developed for the desired bottle, but also prototypes, individual sample bottles and durable blow moulds.
