Advanced polyethylene terephthalate production

The company’s plan to lead development of maximum energy efficient products began in 2006, and resulted in the launch of the first high-efficiency line products in 2010.

Piovan increased energy efficiency by optimising the operational parameters of its machinery, and creating efficient equipment.

Genesys is the most advanced technology for drying PET for production of rigid packaging.

Drying systems for the production of rigid packaging

Genesys provides permanent and invariable process conditions. It also guarantees the lowest energy utilisation, with savings of at least 30% compared with drying technology currently available in the market.

In addition, the system can save 220,000kW/h every year when it produces preforms at a rate of 1,000kg/h of PET utilised.

The Genesys drying system was prompted by applications used in the packaging sector, which accounts for half of all plastic materials in production worldwide.

Machinery for optimising production

Genesys, which was more expensive than conventional systems, was adopted by the world’s leading beverage producers because the optimised parameters it offered ensured constant high levels of quality and output.

The system contributes to the overall optimisation of the production process.
