Recyclable PET Beer Keg Locks in Quality
from Packaging World
Heineken USA launched a one-way recyclable PET beer keg for on-premise sales that offers consistent carbonation, 100 percent evacuation, a smaller footprint, and less expense. The BrewLock is not the first plastic keg, but Heineken felt each competitive system had elements that could be improved upon in its own design. The result is a multi-component system that comprises two 20-L PET bottles; a valve made from polybutylene terephthalate (PBT)/nylon/nitrile rubber (NBR)/steel; a PET collar; and a polypropylene protective cap.
