Solution: Lightweight & Circular

A KeyKeg easily meets the environmental criteria of the European Union. Every KeyKeg is made of 30% recycled material. The gripring and basecup are made of 100% recycled PP. The kegs are also lightweight and easy to stack, so the KeyKeg system saves valuable space during storage and transport. Ecochain helps Lightweight Containers to calculate the environmental footprint of their innovative circular kegs. The footprints help Lightweight to communicate their environmental achievements and helps them to claim their authority as a sustainable packaging manufacturer. 

Our kegs are circular by design. Of the basic materials 81% can be reused for the production of new KeyKegs and UniKegs the other 19% is suitable for other applications.
