Tethered bottle cap

High-speed closure specialist corvaglia demos sustainable designs

Tethered caps, which meet the requirements of the EU’s single-use plastics directive, will be featured at K 2019.

K 2019 visitors to the corvaglia (Eschlikon, Switzerland) booth, A 51-10 in hall 12, can see a demonstration of the company’s innovative designs for closures that are attached to bottles, known as tethered caps, that conform to the requirements of EU Directive 2019/904, which aims to reduce the impact of certain plastic products on the environment. Corvaglia has developed solutions for carbonated and non-carbonated drinks.

On April 5 of this year, corvaglia held a ribbon cutting of its first U.S. manufacturing facility in Newnan, GA. The company manufactures 100% recyclable plastic caps and closures featuring its one-piece closure technology through in-house proprietary molds. The company now has four production facilities in Switzerland, Mexico and the United States.

Corvaglia has made a commitment to reduce the consumption of materials and energy (and, therefore, also CO2 emissions) required to produce packaging while maintaining, if not improving, packaging specifications. Tethered cap technology is one manifestation of this goal.
