Tetra Pak has unveiled its new UHT 2.0 heating portfolio and Tetra Pak E3/Speed Hyper packaging equipment on World Milk Day (1 June) in support of this year’s theme of sustainability and Dairy’s commitment to innovation to reduce environmental footprint.
Tetra Pak’s new UHT 2.0 portfolio with OneStep technology and Tetra Pak E3/Speed Hyper reduce water and steam consumption, creating less wastewater and therefore also lowering the cost of its removal for Dairy manufacturers. Adding a Tetra Pak Water Filtering Station to Tetra Pak E3/Speed Hyper helps recover 5500 litres of water per filling machine running hour (up to 95 per cent), while contributing to lower water consumption. With water scarcity on the rise, wastewater is increasingly becoming a pressing industry concern.
The combination of UHT 2.0 with OneStep technology and Tetra Pak E3/Speed Hyper scores highly across industry benchmarks for sustainability, with a 0.8 GHG Index score, a 0.3 Water Index score, and a Product Losses Index score of 0.7. When compared to a conventional line solution this optimal integrated solution reduces GHG emissions by 20 per cent, water usage by 70 per cent and product losses by 30 per cent.
Upgrades to Tetra Pak’s UHT 2.0 portfolio will enhance automation possibilities and performance, with the offering representing the strongest4 in the industry. The new UHT 2.0 portfolio combined with OneStep technology cuts processing steps out of the production line without affecting end-product quality.
Tetra Pak E3/Speed Hyper represents the future of portion package production. It is the world’s fastest aseptic carton filling machine, producing up to 40,000 portion packs per hour, using eBeam sterilisation technology to complete the task more efficiently and more rapidly than has previously been possible.
