The target was to develop refillable bottles that meet standard tests and withstand the durability test
(washing cycles) similar to the glass ones.Weight reduction
versus previous developed bottles was a major driver of this development.
Refillable bottles are used mainly for CSD products and are popular in Germany, in North Europe and in Latin America.
