Product sustainability: With technical innovations - from eco-efficient packaging and digital decoration of rPET containers to recycling technology - Krones is strengthening a sustainable circular-flow economy.
As part of the enviro management system, Krones has been testing machines and lines for their ecological efficiency for more than ten years now - certified by TÜV Süd (Technical inspection authority) as an independent assessor. With the enviro design, this system will now be enhanced to innovative packaging solutions. LitePac Top is among the first candidates to be tested according to the enviro design criteria and, if they meet the stringent requirements, certified: a newly developed carton packaging for packs with PET bottles or cans.

As part of the Circular Economy, the Krones subsidiary Dekron developed a digital decoration technology that produces brilliant results even on containers made of recycled material. Since the ink used can be removed without leaving any residue, the containers can be recycled again after use and returned for high-quality use.
