AUS: Coca-Cola Amatil eyes savings with new PET bottle
CCA is updating its PET lines
Coca-Cola Amatil (CCA) says it will save up to AUD285,000 (US$297,000) a year by producing a new bottle it claims will be the lightest in the global Coca-Cola system.
The Sydney-based bottler said yesterday (26 March) that it will install new “blow-fill” PET manufacturing technology at its Richlands facility in Queensland. The technology enables CCA to make lightweight bottles with up to 20% less PET plastic than before, it said.
The Australian Government has given CCA a AUD1.3m grant to install the new line, the company said, while CCA is investing AUD450m on the installation of PET bottle self-manufacture technology across its group, it said.
