Recycled PET Bottle

Krones’ 3 Circles bottle is made of 100% recycled PET and in turn can be recycled into food packaging after use. Instead of having a label, which is unable to be recycled, the bottle can be decorated using digital direct printing.

This content was submitted directly to this website by the supplier.


The inks used in this Krones PET bottle dissolve in the recycling process without leaving any residues. A tethered cap remains firmly attached to the body of the bottle after opening and thus meeting the requirements of EU directive 2019/904.

The technologies for the production, decoration and recycling of the bottle are already available at Krones and Dekron as standard products. The recycled starting material, the specially designed preform, and the container and its decoration with environmentally friendly ink are all self-produced. 3 Circles is thus a marketable all-round concept for the sustainable packaging of beverages for commercial use in the beverage industry.

Krones AG and its subsidiary, Dekron won the German Packaging Award 2020 for sustainability for this bottle.
