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. They are recycled here. All in all, the savings on transport can run to 65%. This also lowers your CO2 emissions, and the option of dispensing using compressed air reduces CO2 emissions even more. Also, restaurants do not need harsh chemicals for intensive cleaning, as you do with steel kegs. The KeyKeg system is completely in line with Amore4wine’s sustainability objectives, but at a lower cost and without compromising product quality.
Environmentally, Amore4Wine is green and moves the wine and hospitality industries towards a sustainable, environmentally friendly wine delivery system. The keg itself is constructed of PET, which stands for polyethylene terephthalate, a plastic resin and a form of polyester and is fully recyclable. Since 2011, PET technology have saved over tens of millions of bottles from European landfills. Amore4Wine PET / Key Kegs come in various sizes. A 20-liter keg is a common size and replaces 27 glass bottles, corks, capsules, and labels. A single restaurant moving about 120 cases of wine per month is going to avoid the use of about 17,000 bottles per year, which translates into 8 tons of glass waste alone.
