280 tons of CO2 per year can easily be saved
About 360,000 such containers are needed every year. With a share of 25 percent, around 280 tons of CO2 can be saved per year. This is not the end of the story, and the first pilot tests with 100 percent recycling are underway.
An additional 680 tons of annual savings in production can be achieved through the use of covers and compact carriers with 50 percent reusability. The focus of these measures is currently on European markets; however, this will be extended to Mexico, the United States and China.
Large collapsible boxes replace metal mesh boxes
These work like collapsible shopping boxes – when empty, they fold up and are therefore easy to transport. 15,000 of these innovative containers result in a CO2 reduction of around 3,000 tonnes per year.
