Liquibox unveils recycle-ready urn liner for iced tea and coffee beverage dispensers

USA – Global leader in liquid packaging and dispensing, Liquibox has unveiled a recycle-ready version of its patented urn-liner product line.

Liquibox says the recyclable urn liner comprises a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) tube-equipped adapter and an all-polyethylene bag.

The company adds that the tube and bag adapter is easily separable so that the mono-material bag can be recycled.

With this advancement, Liquibox urn liners are compatible with recycling systems and have a smaller environmental impact while still providing reliable product protection.

An urn liner is said to be a disposable liner that lines a metal drinking urn or decanter’s interior. It has a tube built within the liner that feeds through the urn spigot where cool beverages are dispensed.

Liquibox said that the liquid product is never in contact with the urn or spigot when using the urn liner system. This gives customers a safer, better-tasting beverage and enhances operational efficiency for store owners.

The packaging firm said that its urn liners are suitable for the rising demand for cleanliness standards by decreasing bacteria in liquids like iced tea, iced coffee, and other non-carbonated drinks by 99%.

Liquibox North America sales vice president Kevin Griffin said: “Liquibox has been helping restaurants improve food safety with its original patented urn-liners for over 20 years.

“With the new recycle-ready urn-liner, we aim to contribute to our company purpose of making the world better and to help our customers get one step closer to reaching their sustainability goals.”

Established in 1961, Liquibox is a provider of liquid packaging and dispensing solutions. It offers high-quality, flexible packaging solutions to provide reliable product protection.

In February this year, the company was acquired by Sealed Air (SEE) in a deal worth US$1.15 billion.

This strategic acquisition unites two leaders in the global flexible packaging industry and aligns with the high-performance growth and innovation cultures of both companies.

In addition, it accelerates SEE’s fastest-growing segment, the CRYOVAC® brand Fluids & Liquids business.

CRYOVAC® technology, scale and market access provide a significant source of synergies. This acquisition contributes to and fast tracks SEE’s transformation to become a world-class, digitally driven company automating sustainable packaging solutions.
