Published: June 25, 2014 Content info: 60 Pages
Description

Beer in PET vs Glass Bottles - China compares packaging beer in a PET bottle and glass bottle when operating in China. This study completes a trilogy of studies - Beer in PET Bottles vs Glass Bottles for China, Europe, and the United States. Our EEs of Packaging™ research studies focus on the Economic impact and the Environmental impact of specific products, packages, and processes operating in specific locations.

Undoubtedly, you have read or heard diametrically opposed economic and environmental claims about packaging from sources with equally good reputations. These opposing views have been highlighted in recent years by arguments about environmental claims, but economic claims have been argued for decades. Each source claims to utilize objective, quantitative analysis utilizing procedures that meet accepted standards. This common occurrence leaves industry participants, prospects, and customers frustrated and uncertain as to which results should be believed. We solve this dilemma in this research series.

Our SavvyPack® Index is at the heart of this solution. Our SavvyPack® Index complements our SavvyPack® Analytical Service. Essentially, we analyze the economic and environmental impact of packaging through our Analytical Service and present the results utilizing our SavvyPack® Index.

With this new study you can:

  • Understand Beer Packaging in China
  • Understand the points of view of competing industries
  • Learn, quantitatively, how competing claims are constructed by their sponsors
  • Break free from the stalemate caused by competing claims
  • Discover a powerful and independent service and methodology designed specifically for package industry issues

Learn About:

  • Beer packaged in a glass bottle and a PET bottle
  • In-depth value chain analysis for both
  • In-depth life cycle analysis for both
