Side SA has won an Oscar — the Oscar dell’Imballaggio 2013, an Italian packaging award, for the ultralight 5-liter container, the 5LW.

The jury took into consideration the saving of raw material, the use of recycled material, the streamlining of logistics and the support of recycling activities. Side’s technology allows the use of 50 percent recycled PET, with good mechanical properties. The process also can cut the bottle weight by 22.5 percent compared to similar-sized bottles on the market.

Side, of Barcelona, Spain, makes linear stretch reheat blow molding machines.

Its U.S. agent is Stretch Blow Systems LLC in Fort Myers, Fla.
