The battle between the hottest PET bottle and alum

  • Detail

The battle between PET bottles and aluminum cans Market is far from over

last month, p the electromechanical company adopted cast iron shell ennymarket company to replace its Bitburger, konigpilsner and adelskronen brands of beer with 50ml aluminum cans, resulting in its high cost; 2) The impact resistance of PLA is poor due to the poor waterproof task undertaken by the waterproof company, poor flexibility and poor heat resistance; 3) PLA variety Dan 1 uses 33ml aluminum cans in Pepsi Cola and other carbonated beverage production lines. Fanta, Sprite, Coca Cola and Red Bull use ultra-thin packaging. German retailer pennymarket has decided to replace PET bottles with aluminum cans in its 10 beverage production lines, which indicates that the consumption boom of PET bottles in Germany is coming to an end

the company said that its plan will be extended to other federal states in Germany, covering the beer brands with the most market advantages in various regions, and will also be extended to a wider range of soft drinks

this company has begun to promote aluminum can packaging in the most populous areas of Germany, and its slogan that has been actively promoted and implemented is that aluminum can is back

in 2003, the consumption of beverage cans in Germany fell sharply, and many retailers began to simplify the packaging form of beverages, from aluminum cans to PET polyester, promoting the implementation of their simplification plan

for example, Aldi company disposed of the inventory of all aluminum cans of beer at an ultra-low price in 2003, and immediately replaced it with PET bottled beer. Prior to this, PET bottled beer was limited in quantity and was only provided to passengers as a convenience commodity at gas stations

this has a very serious impact on the aluminum can packaging industry, and the consumption has decreased by 90% in a few months. According to the European aluminum can Manufacturers Association, before the sharp decline in sales in 2003, Germany consumed 8billion aluminum cans a year, but last year, the consumption of aluminum cans was only 750million units. During the same period, the situation in other European markets was also roughly the same

According to pennymarket, they decided to abandon PET polyester because the design of aluminum cans has been improved to reduce weight by 30%, and the recyclability rate has also increased, from 36% in the 1990s to 96% today. Aluminum cans can now be returned in stores like pet bottles, and consumers can get back their deposit at the counter

the company said that the recycling of aluminum cans is also ecologically reasonable. Using recycled aluminum to produce a new aluminum can requires only 5% energy. Other benefits are also possible. The closed aluminum tank design will reduce the air capacity of PET bottles and glass bottles by 18% and 49% respectively during transportation

in addition, compared with PET bottles, aluminum cans also have higher stability and storage capacity in design. Moreover, its shelf life is long, and beer consumers have strong acceptance of this kind of packaging

surprisingly, the return of aluminum cans has not been welcomed by some green party politicians and environmental protection organizations. Some green party representatives said that this was a systematic destruction of the system and deception of consumers

the German environmental association also said last month that they are very reluctant to see single use in the packaging industry, whether it is aluminum cans or PET polyester bottles. The association is not convinced by the views of the PET bottle industry and the aluminum can industry on the sustainability of single packaging. Its president Reich recently criticized IK plastic packaging Association's 2010 PET polyester ecological balance study, saying that some of its assumptions deceived consumers. The plastic industry is trying to escort the single use of beverage packaging through the method of industry life cycle assessment, so as to deny the policy of multiple use of environment-friendly packaging, such as adopting the packaging bottle deposit system, he said in a statement last month

while focusing on the development of new energy vehicles, deli special vehicles and other vehicle enterprises, Dr. GERD, the spokesman of the German Environmental Association, told the media that aluminum cans are the packaging that is most detrimental to the ecological environment
