Closure solutions & smart drinkware

Aptar, Hall C5 – Booth 308

Aptar Food + Beverage, a global leader in consumer product dispensing and active material science solutions, will showcase its latest closure solutions for dispensing beverages and other liquid products, from pouring to squeezing solutions, as well as new tethered closures in compliance with the upcoming European directive regulation for single-use plastics. The company will also feature an approach to the future of smart beverage containers, driving more adoption of recyclability and reusability.

A planned unveiling of Aptar’s recently launched Food + Beverage new brand identity, ‘Create, Collaborate, Innovate’, is one more way for Aptar Food + Beverage to demonstrate the company’s passion and commitment to help companies achieve their environmental targets, while striving to create a more circular economy and make a positive impact in the lives  of consumers around the world. Aptar will demonstrate its commitment to sustainability by showing new developments concerning tethering, linerless, and recyclable valve solutions; certifications such as ISCC+, partnerships with PureCycle, Rebo, Miwa, and others; and active collaboration with key organisations such as RecyClass, Wrap, APR, and WBCSD.

Tethered solutions

Aptar’s SimpliCycle recyclable valve is made from a low-density material, for floating in recycling tanks.

At the show, Aptar will feature its next-generation Rocket sports cap, a tethered solution for non-detachable, tamper evident visibility, featuring a wide opening angle for drinking comfort. Rocket is compliant with the upcoming European directive regarding tethered closures for single-use plastics scheduled to take effect in mid-2024.

SimpliCycle recyclable valve

As an industry leader in providing flow control dispensing solutions for more than 25 years, Aptar’s SimpliCycle recyclable valve is intended to drive sustainability to the forefront of packaging innovation. Made from a low-density material, the valve floats in the recycling tanks, allowing it to be easily separated from the PET stream, and then recycled right along with the PP/PE stream. When assembled into an Aptar closure, the SimpliCycle TPE valve provides a fully recyclable and high-performance solution for use with PET, PE, or PP containers. SimpliCycle was recently honoured to be awarded the best CSR/Sustainability initiative in 2021 by World Food Innovation Awards and in 2022 received the prestigious 2022 WorldStar Global Packaging Award for packaging innovation.

Concepts & new solutions

Aptar Food + Beverage will also showcase new concepts for pouring liquid beverages, including a prototype of the new Blue Evo Cap, as well as solutions for dispensing beverages in an inverted pouch format.

Smart drinkware

Aptar joined forces with Rebo, contributing its expertise in flip-top closures, sustainability and innovation to the partnership. Rebo manufactures a smart water bottle that is not only reusable but also features a hydration tracker to help users optimise performance and track their water intake via a linked smartphone app, as well as a light on the bottle, designed to help consumers increase water consumption by reminding them to drink. During Drinktec, visitors to the Aptar stand will have an opportunity to participate in a daily draw, with the lucky winners receiving a Rebo smart water bottle.
