Not-A-Bottle Container System Wins Patent - Provides an Environmentally Superior Package for Flowable Materials
Estes Park, CO - Dec. 1, 2003 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Rocky Mountain
Business Solutions, Inc. (www.RockyBusiness.com) today announced that
US Patent 6,651,845 has been issued for their innovative
Not-A-Bottle container system for flowable materials. Commercial
benefits include reduced cost and an environmentally superior package.
This system consists of lightweight plastic bags, separate dispensing
containers, and container caps. The disposable bags contain the
flowable material, have a lip (much like a baby bottle liner), and have
a "pierceable" top or pull tab for opening. The container cap captures
the bag lip between the container and the top, and has a dispenser
attached appropriate for the material being distributed.
Potential applications for the Not-A-Bottle container system
- Beverages - including water, juice, and power drinks
- Dairy - including milk and soy
- Baby formula
- Foods - such as condiments and salad dressings
- Motor oil and lubricants
- Household products - including soaps, detergents, and spray on
- Personal products - including shampoos, lotions, and hair spray.
In each application, an appropriate dispensing container allows ongoing
reuse by simply replacing the product bag. Dispensing containers can
vary -- from pop-top drink holders, baby bottles, oil spouts for motor
vehicles, drinking tubes for outdoor enthusiasts -- to sprayers for
cleaning solutions or hair spray.
Cost is reduced due to significantly less plastic than bottles, reduced
foreign package fees, no expensive closures, and no bottle deposits.
The environmental advantages include less resource (plastic) use and
minimal landfill impact if the product is not recycled. With multiple
refills packaged with a dispenser, the Strategic Growth Channel of
warehouse and other large volume retailers is exploited.
"The Not-A-Bottle container system provides an environmentally
superior alternative to current use of disposable plastic bottles," says
Charles Schroeder, president, Rocky Mountain Business Solutions, Inc.
"It's ideal for everything from water and juice beverages to motor oil,
household cleaners, and hair spray. I believe that corporate leadership
with a strong commitment to the environment and social responsibility
will be pleased with how this system can differentiate their product
from their competition -- who continue to use plastic bottles for
Rocky Mountain Business Solutions is now licensing the Not-A-Bottle
container system technology for use with all types of flowable
materials. Exclusive, global licenses are currently available for
specific application categories.
