Sidel Brasal Brazil CocaCola bottles

Supporting Brasal Refrigerantes lead the way in water conservation

Sidel works with Brazilian company to ensure it to meet its vision for sustainability and environmental responsibility

Environmental responsibility

Resource and energy saving are key issues for Brasal. The company has taken steps aimed at reducing consumption of water and proposing its reuse - and has worked with Sidel to achieve resource and energy savings since 1996. The company monitors waste and actively promotes environmental education, so all employees are aware of conservation issues. Thanks to these practices, Brasal was named by Coca-Cola Brazil as 'Best in Class' for water consumption.

'Best in Class' in water conservation

With the Hydra DH2 bottle washer, Brasal is one of the best Coca-Cola bottlers in the world, using 1.14 litres of water per 1 litre of Coca-Cola produced. Brasal used the Ref PET bottle in their processing, in order to minimise the environmental impact of the non-returnable packages, while at the same time increasing efficiency through lower consumption of natural resource and reducing manufacturing costs. Currently the plant has five filling lines and two blowing lines to produce CSD, water and tea. The company's most recent order was for a Combi line for CSD with a 24,500 BPH output in PET, installed in its plant in Brasilia.
