### Successful R&D Cases

- ? We had successfully lighted the weight of the 500/600ml CSD bottle in 2002, the original weight of the bottle, 29g, had been reduced to 27.5g, if calculated at 6 billion bottles, totally9000 tons of raw materials can be saved.
- ? We had successfully lighted the weight of the 1250ml CSD bottle in 2002, from 44g to 42g, if calculated at 3 billion bottles, totally6000 tons of raw materials can be saved.
- ? We had successfully optimized the bottom of the 500/600ml CSD bottle in 2004, the weight of the bottle had been reduced from 27.5g to 25g, if calculated at 8 billion bottles, totally20000 tons of raw materials can be saved.
- ? We had successfully optimized the bottom of the 1250ml CSD bottle in 2004, the weight of the bottle had been reduced from 42g to 38g, if calculated at 4 billion bottles, totally16000 tons of raw materials can be saved.
- ? GDXL had successfully improved the preform base of the 5L edible-oil bottle as a conical base in 2005, which reduced the bottle weight from 130g to 120g, if calculated at 100 million bottles, totally1000 tons of raw materials can be saved.
- ? We had successfully apply the PCO 1810 non-crystallized neck finish to the HR bottles in 2007, if calculated at 3.5 billion preforms, totallyUSD16,000,000 can be saved.
- ? We had successfully lighted the weight of the neck finish of the CSD and aseptic bottles in 2009, 1.3 grams had been reduced on average,if calculated at 30 billion preforms, totally39000 tons of raw materials can be saved.
- ? In 2009, we had successfully optimized the conical-base preforms, also applied to all beverage bottles, which reduced 0.65 grams on average, if calculated at 30 billion preforms, totally19500 tons of raw materials can be saved.
