Tetra Pak Service Cuts Customers’ Environmental Impact, Costs
Tetra Pak has launched an Environmental Benchmarking Service to help food and beverage companies assess the environmental performance of their production operations, and to identify opportunities for improvement.
The service provides an audit of the entire plant, including both the processing and packaging lines, assessing performance in areas such as water efficiency, wastewater treatment, energy efficiency, product yield and waste, and carbon footprint.
Based on this audit, the Tetra Pak Technical Service team will then provide specific recommendations on opportunities for improvement, helping customers reduce their environmental impact and lower cost.
Pilot projects have been carried out in the US and in Europe, delivering average costs savings of around 20 percent, the company says. For example, Pacific Foods, a US-based producer of organic foods and beverages, found opportunities to reduce the carbon footprint by about 3,500 metric tons of CO2e and to cut water consumption by some 31 million liters every year.
