Dedicated to PET solutions
By 2030, the demand for beverages will double. While this is a
huge opportunity for the beverage industry, it is also a challenge
for our planet's limited resources. While packaging is part of the
problem, we know it is also part of the solution. At Sidel, we are
dedicated to developing the best liquid packaging for the industry,
the modern consumer and the planet. The only material to achieve
all of these goals - is PET.
PET is renowned worldwide as a strong, lightweight and hygienic
barrier that requires fewer resources to produce and transport and
keeps beverages fresh, safe and full of flavour. PET material is
also 100% recyclable and can virtually eliminate packaging
Sidel was the first to introduce the PET bottle to the beverage
industry, and today we continue to innovate PET and its production.
For example, our RightWeight™ concept bottle is 70% lighter than 30
years ago. Beyond just the bottle, we have also enhanced production
capabilities. Sidel Matrix™, one of our many eco-friendly
solutions, has cut power consumption by 45%. Our complete and
modular lines that increase output and flexibility while lowering
energy-use and TCO. Today, 6 out of every 10 PET bottles are
produced using Sidel equipment, and our global experts offer remote
and on-site support for our customers worldwide.
By focusing all of our expertise and resources on PET solutions,
we remain dedicated to the material that defines Sidel as an
industry leader, and the innovations that provide the most
efficient, safe and sustainable beverage packaging solutions to the
Lighter and lighter
The weight of PET bottles has significantly reduced in the past several decades. This substantial decrease is principally due to technology developements in the areas of PET resin, PET preforms, PET bottle design and PET production equipment.
