Beverages Beyond Boundaries

Who would have thought it? The

Football World Cup is almost here.

Leaving political topics aside, it is

different this year. The expectations

are muted, especially in some parts

of the beverage industry. In the

(European) summer, breweries and

soft drink specialists would be fully

occupied, getting everything ready

for street parties, public viewing and

the like. Nobody knows quite what

to expect in winter. Mulled wine and

cookies, instead of beer and pretzels?

Sponsorship is also different in a

country where alcohol is not consumed.

Thankfully the beverage industry has

many sides to it. There will always be

consumers who would rather drink

warm than cold drinks, and refreshing

rather than relaxing. They all need to

be pumped and processed, bottled

and filled, as well as packaged and

transported here and there. Athletes

will need isotonic drinks to help

recover and prepare for the next

game. Fans will need to celebrate and

commiserate and everybody is ready

to drink the same thing they see their

heroes have in their hands.

An international event like this is, of

course, still a boon for the beverage

industry. It is certainly a major event

for promotional and marketing

opportunities, but it is impossible to

predict how many extra portions of

juice, water, softs drinks, beer and

coffee or tea will be consumed. I

for one, will be on the edge of my

seat, kicking every ball and catching

every shot at goal. In fact I have been

practicing shooting penalty kicks, just

in case my country needs me.

No editorial about the World Cup

is complete of course, without my

personal tip. As always, almost my

Efficient Boiler Systems for a Climate-

Neutral Future

by SABINE STRAKA

The need to consume produced beverages

and processed foods is constantly

increasing. And so is the demand for

steam, hot water and district heating.

In many areas of the beverage industry,

process heat in the form of steam is

indispensable. In view of impending gas

shortages, rising prices and for reasons

of climate policy, many large companies

need to reduce their energy consumption.

Efficient boiler systems with optimally

matched components reduce emissions,

fuel use, consumption of water, chemicals,

electrical power, and the cost of operation

and monitoring. Intelligent controls can

also significantly increase efficiency,

availability and the service life of the

equipment. The use of modern industrial

boilers can thus permanently reduce

energy consumption and operating costs.

From a small workshop to

innovating an entire industry

For more than 150 years, Bosch Industrial

Boilers has been a leader in the field of

large-scale thermal plants and system

solutions. In 1865, the company was

founded in Germany by Philipp Loos

as a small boiler forge in Neustadt/

Weinstrasse, and a new production site

was established in Gunzenhausen in 1917.

Already then Loos was the market leader

for industrial boilers. In 1952 a patent was

filed for the horizontal 3-pass flame tube

smoke tube boiler with an internal watercooled

reversing chamber, that became

a global industry standard. Numerous

production and plant expansions

followed and the conventional boiler

design as used in old steam locomotives

was consistently replaced by innovative,

safe and efficient new designs. In

2009, Loos became part of the Bosch

Group. More than 120,000 industrial

boilers for steam generation have been

produced in Gunzenhausen, Germany,

and in Bischofshofen, Austria. In recent

years, the company has developed into

a leading global system supplier for

industrial boilers and specializes in the

customized development and equipment

of reliable and efficient boilers and plants,

of all sizes and performance classes

with up to 38 megawatts per boiler. The

technology is developed on customer

request and depends on which energy

source is available at the installation site.

Due to the modular design of the boiler

systems, individual components can be

easily retrofitted. Each system is unique;

it is configured according to customer

specifications. Bosch also fulfils tailormade

requests, the complete system

consisting of boiler, tubes and layout.

Depending on requirements, e.g. up to 7

million variants of one single boiler type

can be manufactured, differing from

each other in terms of emission, nozzle,

nominal value or position, depending

on where the boiler is to be installed

at the customer's site. The particular

strength of Bosch Industrial Boilers is to

manufacture individual products with the

efficiency and quality of a large series.

The Bosch group has been climateneutral

since 2020.

Manual work and precision

The boilers have a weight of up to 120

tons, even before they are filled with

water. The core component in the

production of boilers are flame tubes.

With the specially developed corrugated

tube machine, tubes up to 9 meters in

length can be produced in one piece

fully automatically. The corrugated

tubes are manufactured with millimeter

precision using laser technology. With

the specialized production equipment in

the factory sheets up to 3.5 meters wide

can be processed. As a result, large boilers

require fewer welds, which significantly

increases their service life. Welding is

performed horizontally using a modern,

uniform welding process, which enables a

homogeneous structure and high welding

quality. Depending on the individual

equipment of the boilers, the components

are also joined together manually using

a special welding process. Due to the

customer-individual design of each boiler,

large parts of the manufacturing process

are performed by hand. In addition, more

than a dozen semi- and fully automatic

welding robots ensure consistent quality

of safety relevant welds. An in-house

laboratory for weld seam testing and

material analysis ensures maximum

safety. In three X-ray chambers, up to

100 % of the weld seams are X-rayed and

evaluated. In the beverage industry, some

companies order an outer cladding of

stainless steel instead of aluminium.

Specific requirements in the

beverage industry

The various processes in the beverage

and brewing industries require high

temperatures and pressures, consistent

steam quality, reliability, energy efficiency,

and flexibility. Depending on the application,

boiler systems must easily cope not

only with linear but also discontinuous

production processes. Electric boilers can

follow such processes, in which sometimes

more and sometimes less steam is needed,

much faster and more dynamically. They

heat up faster and offer particularly

high flexibility. In the food and beverage

industry, steam quality is also especially

important. When a food or beverage comes

into contact with steam, culinary steam is

used, which is produced and filtered from

top quality drinking water. The residual

moisture from the steam and the dosing

agents in the boiler water must not contain

any steam-volatile chemicals that would

lead to contamination. Continuous and

reliable operation of the boiler systems is

also important. The redundancy of certain

components ensures availability even if a

component, such as a pump, fails once. The

Bosch delivered the boiler house technology for GATEWAY plant of INTERNATIONAL BREWERIES

PLC in Nigeria. The new boiler plant can generate 55 tons of steam per hour for the entire brewing

process.

power is then divided between two or more

boilers. Pumps that are urgently needed

are duplicated. One boiler runs, one can

take over if a pump fails, for example.

Multiple applications

The boilers are used for all products

produced with heat in various sectors: in

the pharmaceutical, textile and building

materials industries, for the production of

car tires or foams, in the chemical industry

and in the supply of district heating.

Nowadays the first industrial boilers are

operated with green hydrogen instead

of natural gas or oil. There has also been

an increase in demand for LNG (liquefied

natural gas) terminals recently. About half

to two thirds of the boilers are used in the

food and beverage industry as well as in

breweries. Thus, 8 out of 10 beers brewed

in Germany come into contact with heat

from Bosch Industrial Boilers, for example

during mashing, lautering, wort boiling,

filtering, pasteurization, and CIP processes

for cleaning and sterilizing bottles and

kegs. In very large breweries, even doubleflame

tube boilers are used, which operate

with two burners. Two independent firings

and flue gas paths ensure particularly

high flexibility. In the beverage industry,

hot water and steam are required for

flash/tunnel pasteurization, distillation,

sterilization, bottling and cleaning. Dairies

use steam for ultra-high temperature

heating, pasteurization, sterilization,

thermalization, whey production, cheese

production, and milk powder drying,

as well as for cleaning and supplying

CIP equipment. For many energyintensive

processes involved in beverage

production, Bosch offers energy systems

that are particularly reliable, energyefficient,

and automated.

Flexible boiler technology

Boiler technology is not necessarily fossil,

but flexible as to which energy sources are

used. Especially for the beverage industry,

Bosch offers multivalent boiler systems

that can be operated with different types

of energy. The technology is customerspecific

configured and depends on

what type of energy is available at the

site. Bosch Industrial Boilers’ focus is on

switching to green energy sources. In

the beverage sector, for example, biogas

has been used for steam/hot water

generation for many years, and now biooil

is also used. Bosch Industrial Boilers

is diversely positioned and has already

experimented in many pilot plants. Today,

operation boilers with nearly any liquid

or gaseous energy sources is possible.

Since this year, green power is also used.

"In recent years, climate neutrality has

become increasingly important. It is also

important to customers to have security

of supply independent of fossil fuels,"

explains Daniel Gosse, Head of Marketing

at Bosch Industrial Boilers. "Despite

external challenges many companies still

adhere to their CO 2

targets; for this green

technology is needed. Even large wellknown

retail brands are placing increasing

emphasis on climate neutrality along the

supply chain."

Highly efficient operation: 100 %

electric, 100 % climate-neutral

The boiler is the largest energy consumer

in many factories; in a dairy which includes

milk powder production, for example,

energy costs accounts up to 14 % of

the total costs of production. A modern

energy-saving boiler can make the

operation much more efficient. Since this

year, there has been strong demand for

electric boilers, even in Germany, where

electricity is relatively expensive. Here,

energy from green power surpluses can be

used by purchasing the electricity from the

power supplier at a favorable price through

flexible offtake. For energy-efficient

operation, Bosch offers the new electric

steam boiler ELSB. It has a capacity range

of 350 to 7500 kg/h, an efficiency of up to

99.6 % and produces no direct emissions.

When operated with green power, steam

generation with the new electric boiler

is completely CO 2

neutral. It can be

configured individually for each application

or integrated into existing boiler systems

and enables multivalent operation. The

new electric steam boiler responds

quickly and accurately to fluctuating load

reductions. It can be run at full load faster

and has a wider, steplessly variable control

range of 0 to 100 %. The ELSB delivers

high steam quality with low residual steam

moisture. Due to its continuously variable

power control, it has a high efficiency over

the entire power range. The power can be

automatically adjusted to the respective

demand. With the smart control system,

available green power surpluses from

energy suppliers or from the company's

own power generation can be used in

a targeted manner. With its high power

density, the electric boiler is also much

smaller than a steam boiler, and does not

require a chimney or flue gas pipe. This

reduces space requirements and costs.

If, for example, fuel consumption increases,

the digital assistant reports possible causes

and provides recommendations for action.

With predictive condition monitoring, it also

makes predictions about the remaining

service life of important components

and assists with maintenance planning.

Digital evaluation of the data enables

increased energy losses to be detected

and thus energy efficiency to be increased.

Forecasts of wear optimize maintenance

and thus the operational reliability and

service life of a plant.

In operation around the world

Two thirds of all Bosch industrial boilers

are exported to over 140 countries. For

example for the production of ice-cold

beers, INTERNATIONAL BREWERIES

PLC, the largest brewery in Sagamu,

Nigeria, and the second largest brewery

in Africa, also uses process heat from

Bosch. The new modern GATEWAY plant

of INTERNATIONAL BREWERIES PLC is

a model brewery of Anheuser-Bush, AB

InBev in Africa. In the search for a steam

generation system that could meet the

high energy requirements in the brewery

and for cleaning, the choice finally fell once

again on Bosch Industrial Boilers, because

of its product policy, its reliability, and the

presence of a service team on site. To

ensure that production does not come to

a standstill anywhere, Bosch offers 24/7

customer service with short response times

worldwide, including in Nigeria. As a result,

a new state-of-the-art multi-boiler system

was ordered, that can generate 55 tons

of steam per hour for the entire brewing

Daniel Gosse, Head of Marketing at Bosch Industrial Boilers

process. Bosch delivered the boiler house

technology including all components for

water treatment, degassing and energy

recovery.

The universal steam boilers supply

consistently high steam quality on a

high efficiency level of more than 95 %.

Thanks to its optimal matched burners

can use flexibly up to three different fuels

to combust in one single boiler. That also

increases operation reliability. In addition,

the six heat recovery boilers can produce

up to 20 % of the steam demand cost

effectively by simply using process related

waste heat. A variety of automation

devices complete the system and ensure

a highly reliable steam boiler operation.

"As a manufacturing company, Bosch itself

is also affected by rising energy prices or

security of supply. For these issues we will

need future-proof solutions in our more

than 400 Bosch production locations.

Therefore, we will continue to develop our

boiler systems accordingly," says Daniel

Gosse.

Promises and Claims Beverages Make

(and Break)

by DONNA BERRY

There’s a fine line separating a promise

and a claim in the world of food and

beverage marketing, and that fine

line varies among regulatory agencies

around the world. The USA has one

of the more strict set of laws in place

regarding statements on package

labels, and when a consumer feels like

it’s deceitful, off to court they go.

That’s what happened in mid-October

to Nestle USA Inc., a business unit of

Nestle SA. The company is being sued

for two claims printed on the packaging

of its Ovaltine brand of flavored drink

mix.

The lawsuit identifies the statement

“a good source of 12 vitamins and

minerals” as a nutrient content claim

under federal and state regulations.

This means the product should provide

between 10% and 19% of the daily

recommended value of no less than 12

vitamins and minerals. The problem

is that Ovaltine itself is not a “good”

source of 12 vitamins and minerals

without adding other ingredients as

specified in the directions. This matter

is discreetly indicated by a dagger

(†) accompanying the front label

statement. The meaning of that dagger

is identified in a smaller statement

several lines below and reads: Ҡ when

prepared as directed.” Those directions,

as indicated in the third column of

the Nutrition Facts label, require the

consumer to “mix [it] with one cup lowfat

vitamin A and D milk.” That promise

of being a “good” source is broken if

the consumer does not have the milk

for mixing.

The second item in dispute is the

statement “no artificials.” The lawsuit

explains that “consumers seeing the

bigger font of ‘no artificials’ will expect

this means the product does not

contain artificial ingredients. However,

upon closer reading of the label, one

sees that the product contains artificial

and bioengineered ingredients. This

is disclosed a few lines beneath the

ingredient list. Again, a promise is

broken.

The plaintiff further alleged that

misleading symbols used on the front

of the package “took advantage of

consumers’ cognitive shortcuts made

at the point-of-sale and their trust

in defendant.” The one promise the

defendant did not have an issue with is

the phrase “supports immune health,”

which is center front in a bold font on

the package.

In the US, and many other countries,

there’s a line separating claims or

promises that reference quantities of

nutrients, quality of ingredients and

direct health claims from suggestive

references to physiological benefits,

such as energizing, calming and antiaging,

as well as subjective promises,

like delicious, cooling and satiating.

Marketing claims are a tricky business.

New Joyba Bubble Tea, for example,

is a line of ready-to-drink, bobashop

inspired beverages. It makes

the promise of containing “delicious

popping boba.” Delicious is a subjective

descriptor that could prove to be

disappointing to someone who does

not care for flavored and sweetened

gelatinized balls exploding in the

mouth.

Another new product sporting a

subjective claim is Juvee. Developed by

Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag, a superstar

gaming content creator and founder

and CEO of the global gaming lifestyle

brand 100 Thieves, Juvee is described as

a rejuvenating energy drink formulated

to boost your energy, increase your

focus and improve overall well-being so

you’re inspired to add more play to your

every day.

Short for “rejuvenation,” Juvee is

made with a blend of ingredients that

promises to provide invigorating and

mood-lifting effects for longer-lasting,

more sustainable energy. Each 12-

ounce can of Juvee contains B vitamins,

taurine and 128 milligrams of caffeine

for energy. The addition of L-theanine

is said to elevate mood, while the

panax ginseng is for sustained focus.

In addition, the drink has a boost of

vitamin C for health and well-being and

no sugar, with only 5 calories per can.

As with allow- and no-sugar energy

drinks, one may argue that this energy

drink does not provide physical energy,

which is also referred to as metabolic

energy, as this comes from calories. It is

produced via the Krebs cycle, a complex

pathway that converts ingested

carbohydrates, fats and proteins into

a slow, steady stream of energy –

adenosine triphosphate – during the

process of aerobic respiration. This

energy fuels the body’s cells to keep the

body working, with the unit of energy

measured in calories. In general, simple

carbohydrates, namely refined sugars,

tend to be quickly absorbed by the

bloodstream after ingestion. They are

responsible for a true quick metabolic

energy boost.

Again, it’s a fine line marketers walk

with such promises. Imagine a gamer

who drinks such an energy drink with

hopes to stay up all night competing

in a computer tournament, and then

doses off in front of the screen. That’s

a broken promise. Lawsuit worthy?

Probably depends at how much was at

stake and how sly of a lawyer one can

retain to assist.

Such fears of not delivering on promises

have not stopped innovation in the

burgeoning energy drink segment. Nor

has it stopped the rollout of functional

beverages making a range of purported

benefits.

Mude, for example, is a new line of allnatural,

mood-supporting drinks. Mude

is low in sugar – less than 6 grams per

can – and only 40 calories. The brand

claims to be one of the first beverages

with vitamins and minerals that benefit

mood and is sustainably sourced and

packaged. One of the formulations

– Mude Work – promises to help you

focus and have mental clarity. It is

formulated with “deep ocean” mineral

salts, branched chain amino acids and

ashwagandha.

The deep ocean is generally defined

as the depth at which light begins to

dwindle, typically around 200 meters

(656 feet), by the National Oceanic

and Atmospheric administration of

the US Department of Commerce. A

quick internet search reveals that deep

ocean minerals are recognized as being

extracted from deep ocean water and

are associated with superior hydration

and recovery after a workout. When

making such a formulation claim, a

marketer should be well prepared to be

fully transparent regarding sourcing.

The brand also claims to be certified

Carbon Neutral to naturally support

mood without sacrificing health and

wellness goals. Such sustainabilitytype

claims are starting to gain

traction. These claims promise the

consumer that by choosing this

product over another not making

such a claim, they are supporting

the health of the planet. Again, full

12


Ingredients

transparency is paramount in fulfilling

this promise.

While what is healthy for the planet

remains subjective, in the US, the term

“healthy,” as it relates to foods and

beverages for humans, will likely be

defined soon. In September, the US Food

and Drug Administration proposed that

manufacturers can label their products

“healthy” if they contain a meaningful

amount of food from at least one of

the food groups or subgroups (such, as

fruit, vegetable or dairy) recommended

by the dietary guidelines. They must

also adhere to specific limits for certain

nutrients, such as saturated fat, sodium

and added sugars.

Of course, there are ways around this.

One marketing term that suggests

healthfulness is “superfood.” A new

player in this space is RDCL Superfoods

(pronounced radical). The brand

promises to give ordinary drinks new

“superpowers” with all plant-based

ingredients and zero added sugar, all

while making them healthier, tastier,

more ethical and sustainable. Super

Cocoa is a powder that can be mixed

into hot or cold water or blended into

a smoothie. Its rich chocolate-y taste

comes from two kinds of premium cacao,

according to the brand. It also contains

pea protein, ancient grains and seeds,

and greens. Radical Elements Superfood

Blends is a powdered boost that is simply

mixed into water, creating a functional

beverage with immunity support and

other benefits. The Passion Fruit variety

promises to help boost focus and energy

while Dragon Fruit Superberry helps

alleviate stress and anxiety.

Functional claims are often best alluded

to simply by flagging the inclusion of

the supposedly beneficial ingredient.

Let the consumer do the homework and

investigate what the promise may be.

Active ingredient discovery by

screening process

Due to its high water content combined

with potential nutrients such as sugars

and fruit components, a beverage is an

extremely sensitive product that can

spoil within a few days if not treated

with physical or chemical methods.

Beverage-damaging microbes should

ideally be controlled by naturally

means. But natural ingredients, such as

essential oils or certain extracts based

on rosemary, cinnamon or onion, for

example, provide microbial protection

that is not nearly as effective as

conventional preservatives. In addition,

any influence on the taste of a beverage

should be avoided.

In its search for suitable products in the

biosphere, Dortmund-based start-up IMD

Natural Solutions GmbH (INS), which has

been part of LANXESS’ Material Protection

Products (MPP) business unit since 2017,

has developed a program based on stateof-the-art

research processes and search

algorithms. One of the world’s largest

screenable libraries of more than 100,000

natural molecules from plants, bacteria,

algae and fungi was searched for suitable

active ingredients.

In this extensive screening process,

the most interesting results came from

an edible fungus that had previously

received little attention: the Dacryopinax

spathularia, or commonly called “Sweet

Osmanthus Ear”. This edible fungus is

native to tropical and subtropical areas

worldwide, is bright orange in color, and

grows in the form of small ear-shaped

spatulas similar to the osmanthus flower.

The active ingredient is obtained

fermentatively through a proprietary,

solvent-free, food-grade process. It is

composed of molecular congeners in a

specific ratio, all consisting of a sugar

and a lipid moiety. This class of surfaceactive

compounds that interfere with the

referred to as natural glycolipids.

Consumer-friendly marketing

options and reliable protection

against spoilage

Nagardo shows superior efficacy against

typical beverage spoilage organisms

compared to classical preservatives. In

most cases, a dosage many times lower

than that of conventional excipients is

sufficient. The broad spectrum of activity,

even at low application concentrations,

also shows excellent activity against heatresistant

spore-forming organisms such as

Alicyclobacillus species or representatives

of the genera Byssochlamys, Neosartorya

as well as Talaromyces. It is also

effective against organisms adapted

to conventional preservatives, such as

Zygosaccharomyces bailii.

In the recommended dosage, Nagardo

does not affect the sensory properties

of a beverage: color, odor and, above all,

taste are preserved as intended by the

manufacturer. Therefore, the natural

glycolipids can be used in a wide range

of beverages. Carbonated products in

particular benefit from Nagardo, as no

second preservative is usually required.

Special dosing technology is also not

required: the powder is pre-dissolved

in water and added to the beverage

formulation during product mixing.

Nagardo remains in the beverage and thus

protects it naturally even after opening.

Economical solution for filling

sensitive products

Nagardo natural preservative allows

manufacturers to adapt their portfolio

to changing consumer awareness

and growing demand for natural

ingredients. ”Our expanded offering

opens up new possibilities for

preservation. We want to participate

even more in the global growth of

the beverage market in the future

with our brands Velcorin, which

is one of the top technologies for

antimicrobial beverage stabilization,

and our new Nagardo,“ emphasizes

Janmarc Heitmann, head of MPP’s

Beverage Technology business.

”Individually or in combination, our

two technologies are an economical

solution for microbiologically safe

filling of sensitive products,“ Heitmann

emphasizes. All filling systems, from

glass/PET bottles to carton packs,

cans, KEGs, and bag-in-box can be

served with both technologies.

The use of Nagardo and Velcorin can

help achieve a company’s sustainability

goals by reducing energy consumption

by switching from hot fill or tunnel

pasteurization to cold fill. Secondly,

due to lower wall thicknesses, less

PET is required for the beverage

bottles than with hot filling. When both

The Dacryopinax spathularia, or commonly

called “Sweet Osmanthus Ear”

products are combined, depending on

the application, further microbiological

hurdles, such as energy-intensive

distribution and marketing in the cold

chain, can be dispensed with.

Criteria for selecting the

appropriate technology

In addition to the output efficiency,

a holistic cost consideration for

the producer is a decisive selection

criterion for the suitable production

platform. All costs incurred, i.e. one-off

costs as well as running costs, must be

taken into account. Cost drivers are,

for example, heavy PET bottles for the

hotfill process and rising energy prices.

Factors such as the positioning of a

brand, desired claims or the regulatory

situation also influence the selection of

a preservation technology.

The great advantage of both Nagardo

and Velcorin technology is that they

can be used without any problems in

new lines and also in combination with

existing filling machines that were not

originally intended for filling sensitive

beverages. These are, for example, fillers

for beer or classic soft drinks.

Innovative Product Concepts for

Yoghurts, Ice creams, Food services

and Beverages

The GULFOOD Manufacturing event in Dubai , from 8 – 10 November, is yet again the

international venue for the food processing industry and the meeting point for experts,

particularly from the Middle East, North and Central Africa as well as Asia. The global

food industry player AGRANA will be presenting visitors from the dairy, bakery, ice cream

and beverages sectors a wide range of new fruit and flavoring products at GULFOOD

Manufacturing alongside AUSTRIA JUICE, a joint venture between AGRANA and Raiffeisen

Ware Austria.

Healthy and conscious nutrition is

becoming increasingly important.

Consumers are attaching greater

importance to the positive effects of

food on their own well-being and immune

systems. At the same time however

demands in terms of taste and enjoyment

remain high. “All-natural nutrition is a

trend which we are increasingly taking

into account through our innovative

product concepts for the downstream

food processing industry. That’s why

AGRANA is focusing at the GULFOOD

Manufacturing fair on ‘good-for-you’

products since this trend is also on the

rise in the Gulf Region”, stresses AGRANA

CEO Markus Mühleisen.

AGRANA integrates these demands into

functional concepts such as yoghurts

based on various new taste combinations.

One of these novel drinkable yoghurts

is a kiwi-lime, immunity-boosting drink:

This concept is rich in Vitamin C and zinc,

both of which are known to support the

body’s own immune system. The high

concentration of fiber, which is good

for the metabolism, makes this drink a

refreshing, all-round indulgence between

meals.

Another new product development from

AGRANA is a spoonable yoghurt with

large, firm-to-the-bite pieces of dates.

Dates are one of the most popular

fruits in Arabian countries and also

becoming more popular internationally.

Until now, however, there has not been

a spoonable yoghurt with firm pieces of

dates since the dates tend to dissolve

during pasteurisation due to their

innate properties. At the GULFOOD

Manufacturing fair, AGRANA is this

year presenting a dessert with a high

concentration of fruit which combines

the best properties of both yoghurt and

dates.

Proudly presenting the Watson

Says beverage brand created

specially for baristas

The Watson Says product brand from

AGRANA Fruit has been specially

developed as a product line of premium

syrups, sauces and fruit blends for use

in coffee creations, tea-based drinks,

cocktails, mocktails, frappes and numerous

other beverages. Smooth in texture, with a

natural taste and color, these products are

based on premium formulations so that

these are available ready-for-use in cafés,

fast-food restaurants and bars. These

Future-Focused Concepts and Solutions that

Meet Evolving Consumer Demands at Fi

Europe 2022

Today’s consumers are increasingly looking for foods and

beverages that not only proactively support their personalized

wellness goals, but also support their communities and the

planet. This holistic evolution of conscientious shopping is driving

food and beverage innovation. At this year’s Fi Europe, ADM will

take a deeper dive into what’s motivating consumers’ shopping

behaviors, showcasing full-service platforms and systems,

transparently sourced ingredients, cutting-edge solutions and

technical expertise that bring on-trend, consumer-preferred

concepts to life. Highlights include a variety of plant-based savory

and dairy alternative offerings, lifestyle beverages, baked goods

and snacks with gut microbiome-supporting solutions, as well as

interactive sensorial stations.

Sunfiber® is a soluble prebiotic dietary fiber produced from

the guar bean which promotes the acitivity and multiplication

of beneficial probiotics in the gastro-intestinal tract.

Sunfiber® VB can be utilized in baby food. Because of its

slow fermentation, Sunfiber® does not cause uncomfortable

bloating, cramps or other digestive discomfort. All variants

of Sunfiber® decrease the glycemic index of food products,

which helps to stabilize blood sugar levels. Furthermore, the

prebiotic dietary fiber supports the health and function of the

intestinal tract, and increases overall wellbeing. Sunfiber®

VC is characterized by its low viscosity which perfectly suits

technological requirements. It also dissolves well in fluids

such as milk beverages or supplements in the form of syrups

and shots.

Green tea catechins in the Sunphenon® range are innovative

ingredients. Their health-promoting properties differ

depending on the catechin: Sunphenon XLB can be used

in oral hygiene and disinfectant products to make it more

difficult for viruses to penetrate. Sunphenon® EC is a

myostatin blocker that can positively contribute to muscle

growth. In sufficient doses, it can also have beneficial effects

against diabetes and obesity. The Sunphenon® EGC variant

is an amylase and glucosidase blocker that can also have a

health-promoting effect in type 2 diabetes and obesity.

"Consumers are increasingly questioning a product's ingredients

and looking for natural and plant-based alternatives with added

health benefits," says Dr. Stefan Siebrecht, managing director

of Taiyo's German subsidiary. "Taiyo is therefore presenting

innovative solutions and products that enable the industry to

meet these demands."

Three Factors That Affect Production

Value Targets

by CLEMENS PRÖBSTING

Diet soft drinks and other mid-calorie

alternatives make up a growing

segment of today’s soft drink industry.

Along with ingredients like acids and

artificial flavors, typical diet soft drinks

also contain sweeteners. While other

ingredients cannot be overlooked, it is

mostly sugar that affects the density of

the soft drink. This effect is expressed

in sugar concentration (°Brix), which

can easily be analyzed by measuring

density.

To demonstrate the effectiveness

of this technology compared with

traditional methods, Anton Paar, along

with a selection of soft drink production

plants, carried out a comparative study

in which it conducted more than 1,800

measurements over several batches of

diet beverages with a PBA-SD analyzing

system from 2011 and a new PBA 5001

Soft Drink Diet system. The study

aimed to explore whether the PBA

Figure 1: Anton Paar’s PBA 5001 Soft Drink

5001, a measuring system based only

on density, could out-perform Anton

Paar’s older system, which was based

on density and color measurements,

in analyzing the most important

influencing factors for guaranteeing inspec

production of diet products and

%Diet.

Results showed that the new system

could indeed be used for this style of

measurement. Due to its new patented

measuring principle (an oscillating

U-tube principle called the Pulsed

Excitation Method) as well as continuous

technological improvements that have

been made over the years, the system

was effective.

Measuring density for %Diet

monitoring

Traditionally, the perfect diet drink has

been linked to a laboratory reference

method. For this, a lead substance

(e.g., phosphoric acid) is picked to

determine the concentration of a diet

drink, and the reference lab analysis

specifies if the target reference

value for the lead component can be

reached and how much it deviates.

A major disadvantage of reference

methods is that they are timeconsuming

procedures and require

skilled operators and chemicals.

Table 1: Overview of reference methods for different diet beverages

The influence of process water

Process water is the main ingredient

of a diet soft drink and is different

at every soft drink plant. Small

density variations during production

are possible, depending on the

pretreatment. The following table and

figure show measuring results from the

PBA 5001 Soft Drink Diet. A 500 mL

Analyzing the three factors

that negatively influence diet

concentration

All steps in this study were performed

with the PBA 5001 Soft Drink Diet from

Anton Paar, which measures %Diet

based on density with an accuracy of

0.5 %Diet.

Sample preparation procedure

The soft drink package (glass, can, or PET

bottle) was placed into a PFD Piercing

and Filling Device without any sample

preparation having occurred. The

package was then pierced by the device

and the sample directly transferred to

the measuring system.

Sample Measured diet conc. [%] Density [g/cm 3 ] Added water [mL]

Diet cola 1 100.00 1.00098 0

Diet cola 2 92.21 0.99919 50

Diet cola 3 84.92 0.99912 100

Diet cola 4 77.84 0.99904 150

Table 2: The influence of process water

diet cola was diluted with water. The

same water was used for the process

water adjustment.

Figure 2 shows that the low density

of process water changes the density

of the final beverage. Due the

influence of process water, the actual

measurement no longer agrees with

the adjustment and leads to a lower

diet concentration. Consequently,

it can be assumed that if the diet

concentration result is below the

reference value, there is too much

process water in the final beverage.

As a result, operators know that

they have to adapt their production

process.

The influence of citric acid

Density measurement is not a selective

measuring technique. Because diet syrup

has a lot of ingredients, it is difficult to

determine whether the syrup dosing is

wrong or if a specific syrup ingredient

causes the wrong diet concentration. In

the table and figure below, an example

is shown. Citric acid was added to a 500

mL diet orange beverage.

drinkworld Technology + Marketing · November 2022

21


Processing

Since citric acid has a very high density,

the density of the final beverage changes

drastically. Diet concentration increases

significantly (above 200% with 3g added

citric acid). Such a strong increase in diet

can usually only be triggered by an acid.

Sample Measured diet conc. [%] Density [g/cm 3 ] Added water [mL]

Diet orange 1 100.00 1.00066 0

Diet orange 2 109.92 1.00090 0.3

Diet orange 3 129.28 1.00137 1.0

Diet orange 4 169.65 1.00235 2.0

Diet orange 5 209.98 1.00333 3.0

Table 3: The influence of acids

The influence of syrup

ingredients

Syrup dosing is a critical taste and

cost factor. Syrup was added to 500

mL diet cola. The results are shown

below.

In this example, too much syrup was

added to the process water, which

led the density of the final beverage

to increase and no longer match the

adjustment. Since the density change

is not as strong as with citric acid, the

increase in diet concentration can easily

be related to syrup dosage.

One system covers it all

Since, as was shown above, a highly

accurate density measurement is the

most reliable way to monitor quality

in terms of diet concentration (%Diet,

mL NaOH, etc.) during the production

process for diet beverages, using one

system for all samples of a production

plant is beneficial.

A system for quality checks on

all products from a soft drink

factory

With its PBA 5001 Soft Drink Diet, Anton

Paar now offers an analyzing system

that is not only capable of measuring

diet soft drinks and energy drinks, but

also mid-calorie drinks, regular drinks,

and bottled water. Since the sample

is transferred directly from the final

package with the help of a special

filling device, no sample preparation is

required for analysis.

All key parameters analyzed in

one run

Besides density, the system simultaneously

selectively determines the pH value and

amount of dissolved O 2

and CO 2

in the

package. Analyzing all key parameters in

one run from a single sample helps soft

drink producers optimize their blending

process and ensure ideal carbonation

levels. PBA 5001 systems that are already

being used can easily be upgraded due

to their modular setup. Since there is

automatic filling error detection in the

density and CO 2

meters, users can be

confident that their sample filling has

been done correctly.

Less reference analysis in daily

work routines

For anyone still using the complex

molybdenum blue or titration methods

for diet drink analysis, Anton Paar’s new

beverage analyzing system can help. It is

easily adjusted and operated. A reference

for %Diet measurements is only set

at the beginning of batch production,

which reduces the demand for reference

analysis by 75 % and saves users money

on costly chemicals and consumables.

Conclusion

The quality of a diet beverage is largely

influenced by three factors: process water,

citric acid, and syrup ingredients. This

study showed that these three factors

have a negative impact on production

target values. Because of this, analyzing

these during the whole production

process is best done with a system based

on density measurement.

Covert Detection

Technology Helps Identify

Counterfeit Regional Wines

The National Office of Vine and

Vitivinicultural Products (ONVPV) in

Romania, is using Eluceda’s covert

taggant marker with a unique machinereadable

signature, to authenticate

the provenance of its regional wines

and protect drinkers from potential

counterfeits.

The ONVPV oversees national vineyard

management and winemaking in Romania

and supports the traditional production

of wine in this designated geographical

area. The security labels provide a clear

brand identity for the ONVPV, which is

easily recognizable on labelled bottles

and products within a retail environment.

Working closely with security label

manufacturer Eltronis, Eluceda provided

a tailored taggant to ensure that ONVPV

wine labels were protected by the latest

covert security technology, helping

producers to stay one step ahead of the

counterfeiters.

By adding authentication technology

to wine bottles, the ONVPV is helping

to counter this trend, promoting the

provenance of the region, and building

protection against potential counterfeit

through the ability to identify genuine

products.

Richard Burhouse, Commercial Director

for Eluceda, said: “We’re seeing growth

in the use of our covert markers to

help protect products of geographic

importance, as they provide discrete and

instant verification of genuine goods for

enforcement officers working in the field.

“We are delighted to be involved in

this project and support progressive

organisations such as the ONVPV who

continue to invest in security technologies

in order to promote their wines and take

a clear stand against fraud.”

The new labels build on ONVPV’s

existing design and combine an overt

hologram with high-level covert security.

Eluceda’s taggant marker with its unique

machine-readable signature provides an

instant unambiguous response to the

pocket-sized Reveal detectors used by

enforcement officers in the field.

The Reveal range of readers work in

hand in glove with Eluceda’s MicroTagg

and Securitagg inorganic taggant

materials and are configured according

to the ONVPV’s needs to identify genuine

wines quickly and securely.

Wine fraud is on the rise in all markets,

helped in part by the growth of

ecommerce. This poses significant

dangers to both consumers and

producers alike, as fraudsters will

sometimes include dangerous additives

and trust in a brand can often be broken

if customers fall foul of counterfeiters.

Oat Milk Manufacture using

High Shear Mixers

Non-dairy or plant-based milks, such

as Oat milks, have become increasingly

popular over the past few years and as

a result Silverson has been seeing more

enquiries from manufacturers in the

beverage industry seeking guidance and

process solutions for this application. In

response, Silverson has released a new

'How to' video on the manufacture of Oat

Milks, showing how a Silverson mixer can

be beneficial in different stages of the

manufacturing process. The processes

shown in this video can be applied to the

manufacture of other plant based/nondairy

milks such as nut milks like almond

and hazlenut, legume milks such as soya

and coconut milks.

Oat milks can be manufactured in a

number of different ways, but the end goal

is the same. Whether the oat milk is to be

made from whole, cut or rolled oats, or

from oat flour, they all need to be reduced

down to a fine particle size in order to

achieve the correct mouthfeel and product

consistency. Many manufacturers also

require the oats to be ground as finely as

possible to minimize the amount of waste

generated and save on processing costs.

But equipment used for grinding may

not be suitable for creating emulsions or

dispersing gums and thickeners which

are often added at a later stage in the

manufacturing process.

The manufacture of Oat milks and other

types of non-dairy milks consists of lots

of different mixing processes. But rather

than using several pieces of processing

equipment, the disintegration of the oats,

dispersion of enzymes, incorporation

of gums and thickeners and in some

cases plant oils, can all be handled by

one Silverson High Shear mixer. The

interchangeable workheads available for

all Silverson rotor/stator mixers ensure

that full dispersion of all ingredients, is

possible. It also helps to future proof the

production process as raw materials can

be changed and blends of different plantbased

ingredients can be introduced.

Dairy/non-dairy blends can also easily be

produced with the mixer.

A shown in the 'How to' video, a Silverson

mixer is able to disperse any type of oats

into water while reducing the particles

down to a fine, uniform size. The highspeed

rotation of the rotor blades

within the workhead draws the oats and

surrounding liquid into the workhead.

Once in the workhead the oats are

subjected to a milling action between the

ends of the rotor blades and the inner wall

of the stator, reducing them down. The mix

is then forced, at high velocity, out through

the perforations in the stator, in this case

a fine stator screen, and back into the

body of the mix. This sets up a circulatory

pattern of mixing which ensures the oats

will pass through the workhead many

times, gradually reducing down until the

desired particle size is achieved.

The way in which a Silverson mixer works

allows the same machines to be used for

subsequent steps in the manufacturing

process, such as liquid/liquid blending

when enzymes are added to the liquified

oats, or when plant oils are added to the

aqueous phase.

The mixer can also be used for powder/

liquid mixing. As Oat milks are not

naturally shelf stable, many formulations

include stabilizers such as locust bean

gum to help improve stability. But these

powdered ingredients are difficult to

disperse and hydrate with conventional

mixing equipment such as stirrers and

agitators which do not create the shear

energy necessary to break agglomerates

down once they have formed. A Silverson

mixer can ensure an agglomerate-free

dispersion and maximized yield. The mixer

will rapidly incorporate the powder, with

the gums being drawn into the workhead

and hydrated before agglomerates are

able to form.

Once all of the ingredients have been

incorporated and the mixture has passed

through a filtration stage, the Oat Milk

may be fed through a High Pressure

Homogenizer. This is to ensure that the

fat droplets are finely dispersed so as to

be undetectable in the mouthfeel. Where

Photo: Silverson

a Silverson mixer is used as a preliminary

processing step, this ensures that particles

are uniformly and finely dispersed. This

will allow the mixture to pass through the

High Pressure Homogenizer at a much

faster rate, reducing processing times and

saving on costs.

There are a number of Silverson mixers

suitable for the manufacture of Oat

milks. The batch size, raw materials and

formulation dictate which would be most

suitable for each individual customer.

As shown in the 'How to' video a Batch

mixer can carry out all of the previously

mentioned mixing processes. But for

larger batches, an In-Line mixer may be

more suitable.

Silverson In-Line mixers can be used in

conjunction with Batch Mixers, Duplex

Disintegrators and Bottom Entry mixers

where whole nuts, seeds or oats are

used; the In-tank mixer provides the

initial particle size reduction and the In-

Line mixer further refines the product to

obtain the desired finished texture.

For even larger batches, the Silverson

Pilot Disintegrator Plant works in a

similar way and comprises a Bottom

Entry Disintegrator and an In-Line mixer/

homogenizer.

Precise Results: New Analytical

Instrument Unites 3 Measuring Tasks

in 1 Instrument

The new instrument analyzes liquid, translucent samples for their optical spectrum, color,

and water parameters. Or any of the three. Operators speed up their processes and improve

the quality of the results using Easy VIS. They, therefore, save money, time, and space.

The instrument takes over the measuring

tasks of up to three instruments: a

colorimeter, a spectrophotometer, and

special measuring methods for water

testing, such as titration. All this power

rests in one instrument about the size of

a notebook. The results appear on screen

in trustworthy accuracy, precision, and

repeatability – within seconds. That

saves money, time, and space. The

instrument’s name is Easy VIS, one

of the next-generation EasyPlus UV/

VIS spectrophotometers produced by

METTLER TOLEDO.

Manufacturers benefit in many

ways

A typical place for Easy VIS is the QC

lab at small manufacturers in the food

and beverage industry, environmental

testing labs, or any industry needing

quality control and supervising their

process- or wastewaters. The Easy VIS

is used during multiple steps of the

production process: For inspection of

raw materials, quality control of semifinished

and finished products, or

testing the water quality of wastewater.

This streamlines the production

processes considerably. Those who

used to send their samples to an

external laboratory profit even more,

as they can now analyze most samples

independently at an internal cost.

The visual user interface with workflow

guidance allows you to simply scan

and measure. Even untrained staff

can operate Easy VIS intuitively. This

increases the integrity and repeatability

of the analysis and saves training time.

Easy VIS operates within a wavelength

range of 330 to 1,000 nm. The light

source is an easy-to-replace tungsten

lamp, which any operator can replace

within no time.

The partner device, Easy UV, covers the

full UV/Vis spectrum with a wavelength

The PathDetectTM function of the compact Easy VIS spectrophotometer produced by METTLER

TOLEDO recognizes which path length is measured and reduces errors.

Ease of use in a new dimension: Closing the

lid of the Easy VIS spectrophotometer produced

by METTLER TOLEDO automatically

starts the measurement.

range from 190 to 1,000 nm to cover

additional applications in the UV range.

Plus: The Easy UV runs with a powersaving

and maintenance-free xenonflash

lamp.

Analytic precision in three

fields of expertise

25 standard-compliant color scales in

the visible range come pre-installed

and can easily be used. Some examples

are ICUMSA TM for sugar color, ESBC for

beer quality analysis, or OIV CIELab for

wine color determination. The results

reveal the quality of the product within

seconds.

Water analysis shows, for example,

the concentration of Aluminum,

Ozone, Chlorine, or Polyphenol. This

reveals whether the water is fit for

human consumption or can be used in

further production. Is the wastewater

safe to release? With its numerous

built-in water testing methods, the

spectrophotometer can quickly provide

the answer.

For spectrophotometry, the sample is

analyzed at the wavelengths where the

sample has its characteristic absorption

of light. The Easy VIS measures the

transmitted or absorbed light and

the reading reveals the sample’s

concentration or purity.

Plant-based Drinks: Focussing on Oats

Just ten years ago, plant-based drinks

were still a niche product found mostly

in organic grocery stores. Today, they’ve

made their way into every supermarket,

without exception – and they’re filling

the shelves with an increasingly colorful

array of products. This sheer diversity is

also reflected in the processing methods

for the various raw materials used

because each one possesses certain

properties that must be taken into due

account in the production process.

Krones is focussing above all on the

production of oat drinks and can offer

three different process variants.

Variant 1 – Using a ready-made

oat base

Just like in soft-drinks production, the

oat base used in this process variant

comes in liquid form and can simply

be purchased from suppliers. It is then

blended with any additional ingredients

such as stabilizers, aromas, or fats to

achieve the desired consistency and

flavor nuances. Incidentally, this step

is common to all three options. The

blending itself is done in standard

process tanks which are already on hand

in the syrup rooms of many beverage

plants. That is precisely why this option

is ideal for companies wanting to quickly

give the production of oat drinks a

try without needing to invest in new

equipment.

Variant 2 – Using oat meal

This process variant based on oat meal

is also suitable for getting started

quickly since it likewise uses common

process tanks for blending. It does,

however, require a disperser (such as

a vacuum mixer) for dissolving the oat

meal in water. The difference between

this process and variant 1 is that the

first step requires the addition not

only of water but also of enzymes

that catalyse hydrolysis. After that,

the solids simply have to be separated

from the liquids in a decanter, which will

also need to be installed. The resulting

base can then be blended to create the

final product. The ideal target group

for this option is customers looking to

make a quick start in producing midrange

volumes of oat-based drinks with

little investment. Dairies and other

companies with production experience

can meet some of the equipment needs

with technology they already have on

hand.

Variant 3 – Using whole oat

kernels or oat flakes

Production in this variant is based on

oat kernels or oat flakes, which can

be freshly milled on site. Enzymes are

added in specially designed enzyme

tanks that are based on the mashing

technology used in brewing beer. It

is only logical to apply beer-making

expertise of brewery specialists to plantbased

drinks since both processes have

a lot in common. Like barley or wheat,

oats are grains that are milled and then

vigorously blended with water and, later,

with enzymes and other ingredients,

in a special enzyme tank to create a

homogeneous liquid. The pillow plates

and integrated vibration units in the

tank ensure that everything is heated

evenly and the soluble components of

the oats are extracted with the utmost

efficiency.

Besides high extract yields and product

quality, these enzyme tanks offer

great potential for energy savings. The

specially shaped interior heat exchanger

surface transfers the heat so efficiently

that the temperature of the heating

media can be reduced dramatically and

hot water can be used instead of steam.

As a result, the energy recovered during

the cooling process can be used for the

next heating cycle.

Maximum Flexibility in Product Labelling

Gernep Presents New Pre-Modular Combined Machines

For 40 years, Gernep has been supporting

producers from the beverage, food,

consumer healthcare and non-food

industries with customized labellers for

high-quality product decoration. Its range

of services comprises self-adhesive, wetglue

and hotmelt labelling from the label

reel or label magazine, to ensure that each

individual product can have the right label.

The Bavarian labelling machine

manufacturer is setting new standards in

2022: to achieve maximum flexibility in

product labelling, Gernep has developed a

new generation of pre-modular combined

machines. GERNEP’s combined machines

are unique in their ability to integrate

a variety of gluing systems on just one

machine. Depending on the customer’s

requirements, they can be operated either

mechanically or with servo motors. With

the option of integrating special additional

equipment, such as seal labellers, control

technologies and visual or mechanical

equipment, each machine can be

individually adjusted to meet customer

demands.

One highlight of the new machine

generation is the flexible labelling station

suspension system which can be used to

easily combine different labelling station

types. They are also intuitive to use thanks

to an improved swivel-mounted operator

panel (HMI) including new features. To

ensure that the latest safety requirements

can also be met, the labelling machines are

equipped with a newly designed lift guard.

Gernep’s pre-modular combined machines

are rounded off with a visually appealing,

sleek design which is distinguished by its

excellent accessibility, thus also making

machine maintenance and cleaning child’s

play.

Gernep is driven by a desire to continue

developing its products in line with

changing market conditions and customer

demands. Even its conventional rotary

labelling machines – equipped with just

one type of glue – are state of the art and

can be individually adjusted to deliver

precisely what the customer needs.

The use of high-quality materials make

Gernep labelling machines particularly

durable. In line with their motto “More

than Labelling”, this Bavarian engineering

company has invested a great deal in the

further development of its company and

machinery over the last few years, with

an aim to providing its customers with the

best possible assistance in their product

presentation.

Cap Sterilization has Never Been Safer

The French aseptic packaging specialist Serac offers a new sterilization technology,

combining the highest levels of efficiency and safety for consumers, operators, and the

environment. The BluStream cap decontamination module requires only 3 square meters

of floorspace and can be integrated on new Serac lines as well as on existing machines,

whatever their OEM. It is intended for high-acid as well as low-acid beverages and is able to

treat up to 600 caps per minute.

Physical, dry treatment carried

out at room temperature

Serac’s BluStream module uses the lowenergy

e-beam technology. Electrons are

thrown all over the surface of the cap

and quickly destroy microorganisms by

breaking their DNA chains.

Electrons do not penetrate the treated

material and thus do not affect the

internal structure of the cap. As treatment

is carried out at room temperature, it

avoids risks of distortion that could alter

caps’ behavior upon screwing.

BluStream treatment is, nevertheless,

highly efficient since it ensures a 6-Log

bacteriological reduction inside the cap

in only 0.3 to 0.5 second. This efficiency

level makes BluStream suitable for

aseptic packaging and high outputs.

Safer for consumers

Unlike APA and H 2

O 2

solutions, BluStream

uses no chemicals. It also makes

Inside the BluStream module for cap sterilization

BluStream module for caps at Sources Alma plant in France

sterilization easier to monitor with only

3 critical parameters: voltage, current

intensity, exposure time.

Bacteriological reduction is ensured as

soon as the cap has been exposed to

the necessary dose of electrons yet, this

dose depends on perfectly controllable

parameters and can be monitored in

line through a simple dosimetry test.

Sterilization is confirmed in real time,

which is not possible with chemical

laboratory tests.

Combined together, these 3 features

reduce the risk that a cap contains

chemical residues, receives insufficient

treatment and/or is not detected as

faulty.

Safer for operators

The BluStream module is quieter than

conventional sterilization units.

The operating environment is also

very comfortable due to the absence

of chemical odors. The BluStream

module only generates ozone, which

is extracted outside the factory

walls. Ozone is quickly and naturally

depleted in the environment and

leaves no trace.

Safer for the environment

The BluStream module also brings

environmental benefits. As a chemical

free treatment, it does not generate

toxic effluents. In addition, it requires

neither water nor heating or steam,

it has a lower demand in energy and

water than conventional sterilization

methods.

BluStream offers beverage manufacturers

a perfectly safe, real-time

monitored and environment-friendly

solution, for continuous cap sterilization

at high outputs.

BluStream treatment can be applied on

any type of cap (HDPE, LDPE, PET, PP,

aluminum), and whatever the bottle size.

Food-Grade PET with Integrated

rPET Supports Supply, Quality and

Sustainability

Local, national and multi-national

beverage brands are increasingly keen to

boost the sustainability of their packaging,

with vocal commitments driven by

ambitious targets for environmental and

economic performance.

With such a high demand for more

sustainable packaging solutions, the

challenge for converters and brands is

often reliability of supply; wanting to

do more of the right thing isn’t always

possible if the product isn’t available in

the first place.

‘Closing the loop’ is a phrase that

represents the scientific approach

to a circular economy for the plastic

packaging industry, with the focus on

making sure sustainable packaging

solutions are reliably available by cutting

waste, efficiently recycling, and effectively

reintegrating post-consumer waste,

particularly from single-use plastics.

Lithuania-based UAB NEO Group,

manufacturer of polyethylene

terephthalate (PET) resins, is one of

Europe's leading producers of highquality

PET resins and polyols, and part

of the multi-national plastic packaging

producing group’s RETAL Industries Ltd.

NEO Group’s most recent new product

development sees it harness many years

of expertise in glycolysis processes with

the production of aromatic polyester

polyols to create a future-focused solution

to this closing the loop conundrum.

Food grade and sustainable

NEOPET Cycle is food contact PET

with rPET flakes integrated directly

into the virgin resin material, offering

a transparent solution free from

contamination. Explained as ‘a partial

replacement of fossil-based raw

materials with purified rPET flakes for

the production of NEOPET Cycle resins’,

this easy-to-use product ticks many

sustainability boxes.

Ruslanas Radajevas, General Manager

at NEO Group, explains how the

product has been created, saying, “The

production of our NEOPET Cycle is

based on a chemical depolymerization

process using feedstock from postconsumer

PET food packaging

collections. This production uses two

different raw material streams, both

standard raw materials and rPET

flakes. After the paste preparation,

liquified rPET flakes are added into

the first stage esterification. Our fully

integrated process of adding flakes

directly into the polymerization stage

of virgin resin materials means that

NEOPET Cycle is in total compliance of

EU and FDA food contact requirements,

with no EFSA approval needed.”

This extensive technical capability and

deep understanding of the need for a

sustainable food-contact raw material is

good news for NEO Group’s customers,

which include sister company RETAL.

RETAL regularly uses NEOPET Cycle to

produce plastic packaging solutions for

its global beverage brand customers,

who appreciate the consistent quality

which is as a result of the extremely strict

filtration technology.

RETAL EU Purchase Director Arturas

Scerbakovas says that reliable quality is

the most important benefit of choosing

NEOPET Cycle. “Quality is the biggest

advantage as chemically recycled PET

is much more stable in terms of quality

than mechanically recycled. Chemical

recycling improves the clarity of resin,

plus the intrinsic viscosity is the same as

virgin PET."

RETAL’s household name beverage brand

customers appreciate the reliability of

supply too, thanks to the preferential

supply offered thanks to be part of the

same holding group. RETAL EU Purchase

Director Arturas Scerbakovas says, “NEO

Group is a sister company to RETAL,

Ruslanas Radajevas, Neogroup CEO

so we are pleased to have preferential

supply; this is especially beneficial at

a time when continuity of supply of

raw materials is a challenge for some

converters. To be able to guarantee a

sustainable solution for our customers is

very welcome!”

Help close the loop

The ease in which NEOPET Cycle helps

close the loop is welcomed by every

stakeholder across the packaging

supply chain and throughout the

beverage industry as a whole, with

sustainable plastic packaging valuable

for the continued success of the

convenience sector, without unnecessary

environmental impact.

Radajevas shares how NEOPET Cycle

helps to close the loop, explaining,

“Integrating rPET supports closing

the loop and the circular economy by

creating less plastic pollution, fewer CO 2

emissions, and having less dependence

of oil reserves. NEOPET Cycle helps

converters to help their food and

beverage brand customers to meet their

sustainability targets too. It’s a very

logical solution – it just needed expertise

to make it a reality!”
