Krones wants to enable its customers to operate climate-neutral production lines for sustainable foods and beverages that keep the materials used in a closed cycle. That is why the circular-economy principles are incorporated in all our product design work, which is rigorously focused on sustainability. Our intention is to ensure that, once the resources and materials have reached the end of their useful life, they can be optimally recycled and then re-used.
15 to 20 productive years? That’s not uncommon for Krones machines because appropriate servicing and maintenance routines and selective retrofits can keep a line’s efficiency and reliability at an optimum level over a long period of time. That is precisely the goal pursued by the Krones Lifecycle Service team: to provide our customers with responsively tailored services in order to maximise their kit’s operational lifetime.
