Lightweight Containers has recently announced that KeyKeg will become 10% more sustainable within the year. The same KeyKeg will require even less CO2 to produce thanks to additional modifications in the production process.

The International Green Awards is a globally recognized series of prizes voted on annually by authorities and leaders in the beverage industry. The purpose of the program is to further increase the environmental awareness within the industry and honor leaders in sustainability. In 2016, Lightweight Containers won in the category “Logistics and Supply Chain Initiatives,” due to ongoing efforts to make the KeyKeg more sustainable.

The advantages for the environment go even further. The compact design means that KeyKegs have a 25-30% higher loading capacity than steel kegs. Fewer shipments are required, and empty kegs do not need to be returned. All in all, the savings on transport can run to 65%.
