RPC Emballages Moirans has launched the first UN certified 20 litre container to weigh just 700g.

The new 320 range, blow moulded in HDPE, is part of an ongoing enhancement programme at the site which over the years has seen the weight of its 20 litre UN container reduced from 900g to first 800g and now 700g.

Key to the success of this project has been RPC's ability to reduce the amount of material required to manufacture the container, while ensuring that it retains the necessary robustness and strength to safely handle and transport hazardous products.

As well as minimising material usage, the lighter container can help to reduce transport costs, both of which offer important sustainability benefits to help companies reduce their carbon footprints.

The ergonomic design is also easy to handle while a range of decoration options is available for individual branding.

"This is another significant development which underlines our technical expertise and manufacturing capabilities," comments Stephane Mer, Plant Manager of RPC Emballages Moirans. "We have recognised the importance that customers are now placing on sustainability and created a container that retains all its practical advantages while delivering an enhanced environmental profile. Indeed, customer reaction has already been extremely positive."
