The hottest PET bottle is inferior to aluminum can

  • Detail

PET bottles are inferior to aluminum cans German beverage packaging has returned to the tradition

penny, the famous retail chain discount market in Germany, has replaced the PET packaging of its ten beverage commodities with aluminum cans, indicating that the PET packaging has contained about 1.8 trillion pieces of plastic in total, which has lost its market in the country. Now, the packaging of beer brands and their own brands has been changed from PET bottles to aluminum cans. Pepsi, Fanta, Sprite and Red Bull all suffered the same fate

it is announced that this cross dressing activity will be held in Rhine Westphalia, northern Germany. The promotion slogan of the activity is that aluminum cans can be recycled

the company is also promoting the activity of replacing PET bottles with aluminum cans in other German states, from beer brands with strong market position to various soft drinks including Coca Cola, Pepsi Cola, Lipton iced black tea, etc

they are the first discount retailer to launch the pet aluminum can change initiative, but their competitor, the third largest supermarket chain in Germany, has also announced that it will change the packaging of its own brand beer to aluminum cans, and will then use aluminum cans on the packaging of other brands of beer and beverages

before the introduction of the single use beverage packaging management regulations in january2003, a total of 8billion aluminum cans were sold in Germany every year. However, with the introduction of the regulations, the statistical data of the European beverage can Manufacturers Association (BCME) showed that the sales of aluminum cans in Germany soon dropped to only 7.5 million in 2009

contrary to Germany, BCME data shows that aluminum cans are still widely used in other European countries. In 2009, 900million aluminum cans were sold in Britain and 650million in Spain

penny proved that they returned to the aluminum cans because the current aluminum cans adopt a more optimized design, which not only reduces their own weight by 30%, but also increases the recovery rate from 36% in 1990 to 96% today. The advantage of aluminum cans over PET bottles lies in their formability and easy stacking ability. In addition, the high thermal conductivity of metals enables aluminum cans to be cooled faster, thus saving energy. In addition, German consumers are eager to drink beer from traditional aluminum cans

some organizations have criticized the return of aluminum cans. Dorothea Steiner, a member of Congress of the green party, defined the behavior of these retail enterprises as an attack on the multi-use system. Recently, the market share of multi-use packaging has continued to decline to developed shapeways, saying that national exports are mainly low-end and middle-end. It is because these retailers are systematically destroying the original system and deceiving consumers at the same time

however, it is certain that the use of PET bottles in Germany will be reduced in the future as discount retail chains return to aluminum cans in beverage packaging
