Sustainable equipment

Every day, we work with our customers to find more efficient processing and packaging solutions; those that minimise waste, spoilage, energy and water - and keep costs down.

​​Continuous innovation

As part of our service, we help customers make savings and deliver efficient, sustainable products. From the Tetra Pak® E3 platform that uses eBeam sterilisation and airtight separators to cut energy consumption by almost 50 percent; to high-acid juice pasteurisation that reduces energy by up to 20 percent – our innovative thinking directly benefits our customers.

Tetra Pak Filtration Solutions is a world-leading hub for advanced liquid separation solutions to the global food and dairy industry. Our membrane technology is used in manufacturing whey, a vital source of protein in today's yoghurts, ice cream, cheese and meat products. A 'green flush' membrane filtration system uses software to bring wastewater close to zero, while reducing water consumption by up to 30 percent.

Water recovery with Nestlé, Vietnam

We installed our Tetra Alcross reverse osmosis filtration system at a Nestlé plant in Vietnam. This has helped Nestlé recover 1.2 million cubic metres of 'white water' (containing milk) from its decaffeinated coffee production lines, which can in turn be reused to create products like yoghurt. A further benefit is the reduced effluent load and water recycling. White water recovery has the potential to save raw milk, water and wastewater to the value of EUR600,000 per year for a plant, meaning the system would pay for itself in less than a year.

OneStep technology

Our OneStep processing technology allows producers to create ultra-high temperature (UHT) milk from powder in one continuous step. Winning an Innovation Excellence Award for our OneStep technology in 2016, it offers a number of advantages for large-scale dairies including:

  • reduced operating costs by up to 50 percent and associated capital cost savings;
  • reduced production time from two days to just a few hours;
  • up to 30 percent reduction in product loss;
  • reduced energy and water consumption by up to 35 percent, as well as waste and effluent load by up to 60 percent (40 percent reduction in carbon, along with operating cost savings);
  • enhanced product quality due to the greatly reduced processing time; and
  • advanced automation reduces the risk of human error while offering full traceability and control, for maximum food safety.
