Carbon Footprint Reduction

Kind to the Environment

Significant reductions in CO2 emissions from the transportation of wine can be achieved by converting wine from shipping in the bottle to bulk importation. This can reduce emissions by 30% to 40%

One 24 000 litre flexitank generates an average 70 kilos of recycling packaging waste.

One 24,000 litre flexitank = 2.4 x 20 foot containers (in bottles) will generate 15,840 kilos of imported glass.

Over 600,000,000 Litres (25,000 containers) of wine is transported each year in flexitanks.

Reduce Packaging.

Reduce Transport

Reduce CO2 & NOX

SIA flexitanks represent the following CO2 and NOx savings over other systems as follows –

59% CO2 and 58.8% NOx and SO2 over Cased Goods shipments.

30% CO2 and 29% NOx and SO2 over drums and IBCs

1 x 24 000 litre flexitank = 2.4 x 20 foot containers assuming 1100 x 9 litre cases per TEU.
