Award SAVE FOOD

Projekt Save Food je podporovaný Agenturou pro zemědělství a výživu Spojených národů FAO, a řadou významných korporací, kromě jiných i veletrhem Interpack a World Packaging Organisation (WPO). Tento projekt zvýrazňuje významnou roli obalů pro omezení plýtvání potravinami a surovinami pro potraviny. Z podnětu WPO uděluje i Obalový institut SYBA zvláštní ocenění Save Food obalům s inovačními prvky pro ochranu potravin. Pro ocenění Save Food jsou posuzovány všechny obaly přihlášené do soutěže OBAL ROKU bez ohledu na to, zda tuto soutěž vyhrály či nikoli.

Title of exhibit:Multilayer PET bottle with oxygen barrier

Applicant:Plastipak Czech Republic

Websites:http://www.plastipak.com

Awarded in the category:

A multi-layer PET bottle of sandwich construction that incorporates a BindOx® barrier layer that reduces gas permeability between two PET layers. After the minor modifications, the existing bottling lines are able to fill these plastic bottles.

A 750 ml bottle has a weight of 50 g.

The bottle is sealed with plastic (modified polypropylene) with a Novatwist 30H60 screw cap with a Saranex barrier layer that greatly suppresses gas permeability. The tests show the permeability corresponding to the aluminum screw cap. Of course there is a tamper evident tear strip indicating the originality of the package.

The goal is not to replace the glass, but to offer an alternative where, on the one hand, packaging for sensitive non-spirits is required, and it is also safe to eliminate shards: concerts, festivals, airlines, picnics, leisure activities. Slovak Society u.Beverages a.s. Introduced a new line of 750 ml and 375 ml bottles in the Central European market to use e-shop as the main distribution channel of these new packaging.

During recycling proces the separation of the closure material from the bottle material by flotation does not cause problems.
