Tetra Pak's optimal integrated solution helps cut water usage and carbon emissions for the dairy sector

01.06.2021 10:55 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) Tetra Pak showcases its new UHT 2.0 heating portfolio and Tetra Pak E3/Speed Hyper packaging equipment on World Milk Day in support of this years theme of sustainability and Dairys commitment to innovation to reduce environmental footprint.

Tetra Paks new UHT 2.0 portfolio with OneStep technology and Tetra Pak E3/Speed Hyper reduce water and steam consumption, creating less wastewater and therefore also lowering the cost of its removal for Dairy manufacturers. Adding a Tetra Pak Water Filtering Station to Tetra Pak E3/Speed Hyper helps recover 5500 litres of water per filling machine running hour (up to 95%), while contributing to lower water consumption1. With water scarcity on the rise, wastewater is increasingly becoming a pressing industry concern. Up to a fifth of Tetra Paks customers are based in high or extremely high-risk water areas and the company is prioritising action to address this.

The combination of UHT 2.0 with OneStep technology and Tetra Pak E3/Speed Hyper scores highly across industry benchmarks for sustainability, with a 0.8 GHG Index score, a 0.3 Water Index score and a Product Losses Index score of 0.72. When compared to a conventional line solution3 this optimal integrated solution reduces GHG emissions by 20%, water usage by 70% and product losses by 30%.

Alejandro Cabal, Vice President Packaging Solutions, Tetra Pak, said: «As part of Tetra Paks wider ambition to reach net zero emissions across the value chain by 2050, we want to be part of the solution to limit climate change for the global dairy sector. To achieve this, accelerating the development of our low carbon circular packaging and equipment portfolio and working to help customers realise their emission reduction targets is a priority. A significant share of emissions comes from the operation of equipment at customers’ sites. Addressing this through innovation and collaboration is vital.»

Frederik Wellendorph, Vice President Liquid Food, Tetra Pak, said: «We continuously innovate in both food processing and packaging to offer solutions which enable reduction in water consumption, carbon footprint and product losses. In addition to this, we offer environmental benchmarking and improvement services, helping customers achieve their own sustainability targets. Through this holistic approach to sustainability, we aim to help our customers benefit both from low-carbon equipment and packaging, a reduction in operational costs as well as an enhanced brand image — that is increasingly proving attractive to sustainability-savvy consumers.»

Upgrades to Tetra Paks UHT 2.0 portfolio will enhance automation possibilities and performance, with the offering representing the strongest4 in the industry. The new UHT 2.0 portfolio combined with OneStep technology cuts processing steps out of the production line without affecting end-product quality.

UHT Best Practice Line with OneStep Technology

Tetra Pak E3/Speed Hyper represents the future of portion package production. It is the worlds fastest aseptic carton filling machine, producing up to 40,000 portion packs per hour, using eBeam5 sterilisation technology to complete the task more efficiently and more rapidly than has previously been possible. This reduces the environmental impact and makes water recycling easier. It couples low-cost high-speed production with significant environmental advantages. While its increased capacity can reduce manufacturers operational costs by up to 10%6, it also represents a low carbon alternative to aseptic PET equipment — since electricity consumption and carbon footprint are both five times lower than for aseptic PET lines7.

The announcement follows Tetra Paks 2020 pledge to not only reach net zero emissions in its own operations by 2030, but to also realise a net zero emissions ambition across the value chain by 2050. Tetra Pak has planned a step-change in investment levels in sustainable innovation, committing at least 100 million annually over the next 5–10 years. This will help the company realise its goal of offering processing and packaging solutions with a minimal carbon footprint.
