Durable and lightweight refillable bottles for sustainable packaging

When it comes to packaging solutions for beverages, durability and sustainability are key. Industrial refillable bottles face rigorous challenges, including long-distance transportation and repeated exposure to harsh cleaning methods. At ALPLA, we have developed a groundbreaking solution with our refillable and reusable PET bottles, which overcome these challenges thanks to their specialised material composition and robust construction. They can be refilled and reused up to 25 times.

Seamless transition to reusable plastic

Reusable lightweight PET bottles for beverages solutions in various sizes

We know how important it is for our clients to make the transition from single-use options to returnable plastic (deposit) bottle alternatives. That’s why we’ve created standard reusable PET bottle variants, available in an array of designs and sizes, as well as customer-specific solutions. These plastic bottles are designed to excel in various aspects:

  • Incorporating rPET (recycled quality polyethylene terephthalate)
  • Achieving optimal weight reduction
  • Sustaining a minimum of 15 reuse cycles
  • Being perfectly suited for carbonated soft drinks and mineral water
