Sidel at CBST 2019
Date 10.24.2019 | Category: News
During the 9th China International Beverage Industry Exhibition on Science & Technology (CBST), taking place from the 18th to 20th of November in Shanghai, Sidel (Booth 1E02, Hall N1) will highlight innovative packaging solutions for aseptic and other applications, demonstrating the company’s global expertise paired with a strong local footprint in China.
Beverages – and particularly “better-for-you” drinks – are more and more winning consumers’ preference in China. Health and environmental concerns are becoming increasingly important, while a majority of the population is keen to try new, attractively packaged products. One of the benefactors of this trend is PET. With an expected Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 3.4% between 2019 and 2022, this packaging material is predicted to strongly gain in importance also within the soft drinks sector. This is where Sidel steps in, showing its capabilities at this year’s CBST by perfectly matching the key drivers of the prospering beverage market: innovation, premiumisation and high quality packaging.
Turning the spotlight on food safety and sustainability
With its unique legacy in packaging design and a 40-year long experience in aseptic PET applications, Sidel addresses aseptic packaging as one of its key business areas, continuously enhancing its capabilities in this field. A clear proof point of Sidel’s leadership in aseptic applications is the Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) approval received for the Aseptic Combi Predis™, a world’s first. This integrated blow fill seal filler solution with dry preform sterilisation offers sensitive products manufacturers utmost food safety, flexibility, ease of operations and environmental benefits, as it uses no water and very few chemicals. Prominently featured at Booth 1E02, Hall N1 at CBST 2019, it will allow visitors a hands-on experience of the future of aseptic packaging that China’s leading brands, such as Yili, Jin Mai Lang and NongFu – among others – are already trusting today. Furthermore, the proven Sidel Actis™ plasma coating technology will be showcased at the booth. With “Actis” referring to “Amorphous Carbon Treatment on Internal Surface”, the system extends the shelf life of beverages packaged in PET by up to five times while enabling lightweighting, yet with no compromises on recyclability. These benefits, paired with great simplicity, contributed to many references installed globally, currently accounting for more than five billion bottles produced across CSD, beer, juices, tea and coffee. Among them, StrongPack Ltd. – a major Nigerian co-packer for non-alcoholic drinks – was able to lightweight their bottles by 25%, thus leading to a saving of about three tons of PET resin per day.Source: SidelAuthor: Sossna
