Pepsi Switches Bottles to Save Energy
The Pepsi Beverages Company’s Latham, NY bottling plant has launched a $10 million energy efficiency project that replaces merchant-supplied bottles with energy-efficient, onsite, plastic bottle production, The Troy Record reports. Pepsi received $286,000 from NYSERDA for the project.
PBC is using state-of-the art, energy efficient blow molding equipment estimated to reduce its energy use by more than 2.4 million kilowatt hours annually. Additional energy costs are reduced because bottles no longer need to be transported to the Latham facility, and bottle handling and preparation at the plant is reduced.
