Environmental
impact

By incorporating the PET handle into the PET bottle preform, this package provides the first large format bottle with a handle made of mono-material PET – which is single stream, bottle-to-bottle recyclable, and 50% PCR capable.

Additionally, PET is the only FDA approved food grade recycled plastic material.

BottleOne containers are so strong and durable that they can be stacked on top of each other without the need for cardboard boxes or crates.

Some BottleOne users have found:

  • Gallon HDPE jugs that require corrugated boxes to ship pallets with 4 layers have been replaced by BottleOne gallon jugs in bundles that can be palletized with 5 layers, and those 5-high pallets can be stacked 2 high.
  • Corrugated usage is reduced by more than 30-60%.
  • Climate controlled warehousing space can be cut by 30%.
  • Trucks that were maxed out on floor space with 4-high pallets can now be maxed out on weight which means 25% more product can be shipped per truck vs. HDPE bottles, eliminating 25% of current emissions.

Endlessly Sustainable

BottleOne’s processes and equipment can handle up to 50% PCR. BottleOne containers are designed to be caseless, and will enable elimination of most secondary packaging due to their inherent strength and durability. If PCR content negatively affects strength and durability, we will adapt our designs and processes to mitigate them in order to keep secondary packaging minimized. The door to circularity swings only one way, opening to the future, and will not permit a return to the past. PCR is here to stay.

MANUFACTURED WITH UP TO 50% RECYCLED PET (PCR)

No Leaks, No Contamination

BottleOne’s excellent barrier properties, and its neck and cap seal, improve product security. It seals hermetically, eliminating leaks that are endemic to current HDPE packaging. This reduces the mess in production, in the dairy case and in the consumer’s home. It also expands sales and geographic distribution limits currently placed upon many production facilities, as they can ship farther without product loss or damage. Now that large capacity bottles don’t leak, they can easily be included in last-mile deliveries, whether through a personal service or drone delivery.

Improved
Taste Profile

We already know that multiple variables can influence product quality, including microorganisms, light, oxygen and temperature. PET barrier solutions improve product safety with good oxygen barrier properties – 50 times higher than HDPE (high density polyethylene). Studies have demonstrated that products taste better when they are packaged in PET.

Retains more
nutrition

The same variables that ensure your products taste better also help them retain better nutrition than regular HDPE jugs. A Virginia Tech Study proves that 2% milk, packaged in PET, retains more nutrition and tastes better than products packaged in standard HDPE bottles. Many other beverage products, particularly plant-based beverages like tea and juice contain the same vitamins and nutrients that are found in milk, and it is logical to believe that the flavor and nutrition benefits gained by milk in PET will impact those products in similar ways.

Manufacturing

A revolutionary blow molding process

BottleOne Technology builds on the principles of injection and reheat stretch blow molding to create PET containers of extraordinary strength and durability. Using a preform with an integrated PET handle, BottleOne technology uses established manufacturing platforms to create large capacity handled containers at industry competitive speeds and economics.

Patented Technology

The development of BottleOne, a PET bottle with an integrated PET handle, took nearly a decade. Currently, there are 17 US patents which have been issued, and one US patent that is pending. To date, there has never been a patent claim denied. The initial patent “Manufacturing Method and Device for a Container with an Integral Handle” has been approved in 30 countries. In addition, 44 BottleOne international patents have been granted.

Independent top load strength tests demonstrated BottleOne was far superior (>7x) to HDPE bottles in a side-by-side evaluation of one gallon bottles. Virginia Tech has validated BottleOne to have a higher retention of riboflavin (flavor), vitamins, and dissolved oxygen (potential for longer primary shelf life).

Incredible partnership

InterTech has been engaged as our exclusive engineering integrator, for design, installation and project management of all production line conversions to BottleOne.

InterTech has helped hundreds of food and beverage plants implement a variety of manufacturing projects for over 35 years. InterTech helps manufacturing companies reduce their operating cost for a single line or for multi-plant operations. They model plant operations and provide feasibility analyses of project ideas.

InterTech also develops Requests for Information (RFIs) or Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for major equipment to determine and secure the best value for its clients. InterTech can forecast operational costs for the long-term and establish budgets for plants that have not previously been self-manufacturing their bottles.

InterTech’s clients include Coca Cola and Pepsi Cola (and their respective bottlers), Cargill, ADM, Refresco, and many others. We invite you to view a more complete list of InterTech’s esteemed past and current clients.

The HDPE milk bottle was introduced 55+ years ago. With continual light-weighting reducing flavor and nutrition, volumes have fallen. What hasn’t fallen are your headaches throughout the supply chain. What if you could provide a safe package that does not leak, is transparent, innovative, sustainable, and e-commerce ready? Well, now you can! We call it BottleOne™.
