Sustainable Solution Description
With technical innovations from eco-efficient packaging and digital decoration of rPET containers to recycling technology and wastewater reuse, Krones is fully committed to strengthening a sustainable circular-flow economy. As part of the enviro management system, Krones has been testing machines and lines for their ecological efficiency for more than ten years now – certified by TÜV Süd (Technical inspection authority) as an independent assessor. With the enviro design, this system will now be enhanced to innovative packaging solutions. LitePac top secondary packaging is among the first candidates to be tested according to the enviro design criteria and, if they meet the stringent requirements, certified as a newly developed carton packaging for packs with PET bottles or cans. Package recycling technology Millions of PET bottles a year are already being recycled on Krones’ MetaPure systems depending on the demand involved, in different material qualities up to and including food-grade PET. Because the company is pursuing a holistic approach, it is step-by-step expanding its technology to cover additional types of plastic. The MetaPure W washing modules can already be used not only for PET, but also for processing polyolefins (PO). In order to equip its clients with application-tailored turnkey factories, Krones cooperates closely with Stadler Anlagenbau GmbH to equip its customers with precisely tailored turnkey factories. The company is one of the market leaders in the field of sorting systems and has already sold more than 350 turnkey systems and 2,000 individual components worldwide. Fast, energy-economical container production Handling preforms with a recyclate content of up to 100%? With the Contiform stretch blow molding machines, it’s no problem. The high-speed version from the series with a station output of up to 2,750 containers per hour, the Contiform 3 Speed produces application-tailored packages for still water, CSDs and sensitive products. Like all machines in the Contiform series, it has been designed for high energy and media efficiency. It undercuts the already very low energy and compressed-air consumption of the Contiform 3 Pro by another up to 15%. Direct printing as part of the cycle As part of the Circular Economy, the Krones subsidiary Dekron developed a digital decoration technology that produces brilliant results even on containers made of recycled material, the DecoType. Since the ink used can be removed without leaving any residue, the containers can be recycled again after use and returned for high-quality use. The carbon balance is also positive because no label material is used – no labels means no inventory. Containers are decorated right on the line with the ability to switch artwork within seconds during production. Container design that is eco-friendly and economical The ideal package offers persuasively attractive pluses in all situations: in the production process and at the point of sale, during transport and finally during recovery as well. Since Krones has invested in holistically conceived solutions, development work on both bottle design and machine technology goes hand in hand. Krones’ packaging designers optimize existing designs in terms of weight, haptics and line efficiency. And they can draw upon profound expertise in ecological and economic requirements, like choice of materials, recyclability, or weight optimization. Recycling wastewater to new process water Since Krones has already optimized its individual machines for enhanced efficacy over the years, the complete-system vendor has now expanded the horizons of its corporate capabilities to factory level. HydroCircle is a holistically conceived concept for converting wastewater from the production operation into new process water. This covers all the process steps involved that give rise to wastewater in production.
