Sidel's StarLite Wins Award

The base design StaLite makes it possible to reduce the total package weight by up to one gram of material in a 0.5 litre bottle or two grams in a 1.5 litre format (figure: Sidel)

Sidel’s StarLite has won the title of “Best Environmental Sustainability Initiative” at the 2013 Global Bottled Water Awards that took place in Nashville, USA from 12th–14th November, 2013.

StarLite is Sidel's proprietary design for the base of PET bottles for still drinks. The base design makes it possible to reduce the total package weight by up to one gram of material in a 0.5 litre bottle or two grams in a 1.5 litre format, helping to create PET bottles with even less material. This, in turn, reduces the consumption of energy in the production process. The StarLite design was developed by Sidel as a shape to optimise the resistance and stability of the bottle base, which can also help improve overall bottle rigidity. The base design is especially suited to bottles containing water and juices and, under certain conditions, can be used for other still beverages.

The StarLite base is an important and integral part of Sidel's new RightWeight concept bottle, which is a design for 0.5 litre still water bottles in PET. The RightWeight bottle weighs just 7.95 grams yet, using standard 26/22 caps, offers top-load performance of 33 kilograms without nitrogen dosing. Its increased resistance helps eliminate the 'over squeeze' problem experienced by some consumers when using ultra-light bottles, which often results in the unintentional spilling of the bottle's contents. Increased resistance also makes it easier to unscrew the cap and open the bottle.

Now in their 10th year, the Global Bottled Water Awards are an annual awards initiative designed to recognise a range of categories within the industry. Established by Zenith International - the consultancy that advises the industry on business and technical issues – the categories include product innovation, packaging, and marketing, as well as sustainability. They are presented at the Gala Awards Dinner of the Global Bottled Water Congress, a three-day event for those involved in the bottled water industry worldwide.
