Ardagh unveils lightweight Becks bottle

February 12
10:55 2013

Ardagh Group has developed an ultra-lightweight 275ml bottle for Beck’s and Beck’s Blue, reducing the original from 185 grams to 165 grams.

The 11% weight reduction on 130 million bottles will save 2642 tonnes of glass, the equivalent weight of more than 200 modern double decker buses.

The new lighter bottle will mean 1940 tonnes of CO2 are removed from the manufacturing process at Ardagh’s glass plant in Nienburg, Germany, where the bottles were produced.

Ardagh’s use of advanced analytical design tools enabled the 20g per bottle weight reduction to be achieved while maintaining the strength of the original container.

Designers also incorporated a label panel while retaining the outline bottle shape and neck profile of the previous design.
