We are a pioneering manufacturing business, founded to develop packaging solutions that minimise our customers impact on the environment.
We produce high-performing packaging solutions that protect your product with minimal environmental impact in terms of consumption of natural resources and emissions.
Recyclable by Design
Petainer collaborates with brand owners and recyclers to ensure products are suitable for collection systems and minimise plastic waste. PET is highly recyclable and can be reused or reprocessed into high-quality food-grade rPET.
Designing Waste Out
At Petainer, our teams work to produce lightweight, innovative PET containers that minimise the usage of material. We strive to design waste out of our customer's products, while manufacturing high-performance, cost-effective, and visually appealing packaging solutions.
The Value of rPET
Petainer has been incorporating up to 50% recycled PET into our packaging solutions since 2003, and manufactures a range of products with 100% rPET content. Including rPET in our one-way and refillable small containers has allowed us to reduce our customers' carbon footprint by over 20% in 2020, the equivalent of 24,000 tonnes of CO2. We have unique knowledge and expertise in processing food-grade, contaminate-free rPET flakes and can provide world-class sustainable preform solutions.
Reusing and refill
We produce packaging solutions that can be reused to help you implement best practices when using refillable bottle and water cooler bottle systems. As an example, our refillable bottles can be reused up to 25 times, and our Water Cooler Bottles refilled more than 20 times.
In partnership with the IVL in Sweden, we have developed the Petainer carbon footprint calculator. This allows Petainer to provide our customers with the carbon footprint measurement for each portfolio product purchased. The calculator can be used as a tool to support delivery against your broader business objectives and commitment to reducing your carbon footprint. Contact us to understand how we can support your carbon reduction strategy.
Reduce your carbon footprint
Using rPET instead of virgin plastic will save up to 75% in carbon emissions. As consumer values shift toward environmentalism, we have found that including rPET content is a simple way to communicate your brands sustainability credentials. This demand will bring us closer to a circular economy, whether in Deposit Return Schemes or increased recycling rates.
Towards Net Zero
We can help you tailor your packaging strategies to achieve net zero goals. Our factory in Sweden has been taken carbon neutral for its operations.
Petainer is a responsible manufacturer and we constantly work to improve the impact that our business has on the environment and society.
Two of our core manufacturing sites are powered by renewable energy, allowing Petainer to significantly reduce carbon emissions from our operations. We can provide an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) which is an independently verified and registered document that communicates transparent and comparable information about the life cycle environmental impact of our products (ISO 14025).
