From soft drinks to craft beers, and coffees and teas to new energy drinks, beverage packaging goes hand in hand in our daily life. Packaging can not only create a "first impression" carrier for beverages, but also provide protection for product transportation and help extend the shelf life of fresh agricultural products.
Beverage Packaging Recycling
After being used, some beverage packaging materials or containers can be recycled and made into new packaging materials through a series of processing, such as paper recycling pulping, aluminum and glass re-smelting. Some plastic packages can be transformed into renewable materials after plastication.
A triangle with a number (1 to 7) inside stamped on a plastic container or bottle is actually a Plastic Identification Code. This code identifies the type of beverage packaging is - and does not necessarily mean the container can be recycled..
Actually, less than 15% of plastic packaging is recycled and used for future use every year, and the rest of the packaging eventually becomes waste. Sustainable packaging is one of the most important trends sweeping the entire beverage industry.
Beverage Dewatering Machine
The GREENMAX Poseidon Series Beverage Dewatering Machine is the first step in a beverage packaging recycling process for filled waste beverages. The Greenmax Poseidon was designed specifically to compresses yogurt bottles, PET bottles, aluminium cans and beverage boxes. The screw compression technology enables continuous output at a ratio of 8:1, effectively dewaters the containers with the liquid captured in the water collection tray.
The beverage dewatering machine compresses bottles to increase density and reduce volume to save space. After that, the compressed waste packaging can be further processed and remanufactured into various plastic products.
