The progress of PET in becoming the material of choice for beverage bottles has been very rapid. Today, it is widely used and preferred over other materials such as PVC, glass, aluminum cans, etc. PET is a rugged, light, inexpensive packaging solution that is also “green”. PET bottles can be recycled. It is a big plus that PET bottles do not go to landfills but find their way back to the market.
The market for used PET beverage machinery is a busy one because of the advantages offered by PET in the manufacture of consumer packaging and bottles.
