KHS to present a new PET concept at the K Show 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.

New PET bottle supporting circular economy

Kai Acker, CEO of KHS said, “Our extensive PET portfolio covers the entire value chain, ranging from innovative bottle design to energy and resource-efficient production processes." As a system provider, KHS always has its finger on the pulse of the times with its topics, asserts Acker. "We provide support for conversion to environmentally friendly and resource-conserving types of packaging. Our portfolio offers concrete solutions for further promoting the concept of sustainability."

The New Bottle Concept – Reduce, Recyle and Reuse

The company combines various disciplines of its extensive know-how to create a unique container unparalleled to date. With this concept, KHS is consistently pursuing its strategy of reduction, recycling and reuse and for this purpose has concluded a partnership with an environmental service provider. A new PET bottle developed by KHS will be presented for the first time at the K Show.

Compared to conventional PET containers, the system provider's new approach ensures 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. "Our goal was to design a container with the smallest possible ecological footprint and we are consistently developing the circular economy approach further on this basis," says Acker.

The system provider shows how efficiency and sustainability go hand in hand by offering further line-compatible container solutions in addition to its Bottles & ShapesTM service offering. With these technologies, KHS provides its customers support in the conversion to an environmentally friendly and resource-conserving packaging portfolio.

Holistic Line Concept

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 molder to palletizer.

With the Bottles & ShapesTM 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 molds.

KHS will be exhibiting at the K Show in Düsseldorf from 16 to 23 October in Hall 13, Booth A75.
