plastic bottles are generated worldwide per minute and transported around the globe


there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans


the transport of goods will increase

The population of our earth is growing rapidly – by 2050 there will be more than 10 billion people on our planet and the demand for hygienic clean drinking water will rise by 55%. Today more than 800 million people have no access to clean, healthy and pure water.

Approximately one million plastic bottles are produced around the world every minute, which are then transported across the globe, generating unnecessary CO2 emissions and tons of plastic waste.

We all live on a “plastic planet”. In around 30 years there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans. The flood of plastic is steadily increasing and so-​called microplastics can be found everywhere – in the air, in the soil, in our food and in the water, it has already been detected in the body.

The transport of goods will increase by 350% over the next 30 years. That is 4.5 times the volume of transport compared to today. A big problem for people and the globe.

It is BWT’s declared aim to make water of a perfect drinking water quality available all over the world. With innovative, patented BWT technologies, it is possible to filter local water and at the same time enrich it with valuable minerals and trace elements such as magnesium, zinc and silicate. Thanks to BWT, great-​tasting, mineralized water of the best quality comes directly from the tap, the water dispenser or the table water filter.

This saves the laborious transport, storage and disposal of water bottles. BWT pays particular attention to sustainability, social responsibility and the careful use of limited resources in order to guarantee future generations a beautiful, liveable world. With the philosophy of the Bottle Free Zone, BWT are getting closer to this goal every day, sip by sip. However, bottles are not dispensed within a Bottle Free Zone. Rather, it is about avoiding single-​use plastic bottles, which cause tons of rubbish.

Whether at home, in the office, in restaurants, hotels or in public buildings, the BWT Bottle Free Zone provides locally processed mineralized water. This is dispensed or bottled in environmentally friendly reusable bottles made of glass or plastic, free of BPA and environmentally harmful substances, and depending on the taste enriched with valuable magnesium, zinc or silicate.

BWT x Salzburg Festival – press conference

The Salzburg Festival is the benchmark in the cultural field of music and performing arts. At BWT, we are pursuing an ambitious goal: We want to make the world better sip by sip with our technologies and our commitments. To be able to advance this vision together with a partner like the Salzburg Festival is a great honour and inspiration for us in our mission “For You and Planet Blue”.

At home

Elim­i­nating single use plastic bottles is the first step towards change. The second impor­tant step, is the treat­ment and refine­ment of your local water.

BWT makes more of your tap water, even if your tap water tastes great, it doesn’t hurt to enrich it with valu­able minerals such as magne­sium or trace elements such as zinc and sili­cate. In addi­tion, some house­holds suffer from extreme levels of calci­fi­ca­tion. You can protect your­self against that too. Bottle Free Zone solu­tions are avail­able for every require­ment.


The goal: to save on single use- and plastic bottles. We have the solu­tion for this: water dispensers that ensure clean, locally prepared drinking water enriched with minerals and trace elements.

Cold, warm, still or sparkling, simply at the push of a button and with your personal drinking water bottle there is no need for a guilty conscience. Because from now on a child in Africa will drink with you, because with every consump­tion you ensure that they have easy access to clean drinking water.


Bottle Free Events are those that delib­er­ately do without single use- and plastic bottles. Event organ­isers who choose a better world and have decided to protect the envi­ron­ment and provide for future gener­a­tions. Event organ­isers who want to help us change the world. Sip by sip.

Gastronomy & hotel busi­ness

If you encounter a bottle free zone in a restau­rant or hotel, it means you will expe­ri­ence the best local water. Water that is refined with valu­able magne­sium, zinc or sili­cate. That you can drink with a clear conscience, because not only do you benefit your­self but also so does a child in Africa. Which gets easy access to clean drinking water. Sip by sip.

Norbert Niederkofler, AlpINN Restau­rant at the Kron­platz - South Tyrol

“Our goal is to always offer quality and service on the “highest possible level”, including the water that we serve to our guests. It is also impor­tant to us, to protect and take care of our envi­ron­ment. That is why we made our restau­rant a bottle free zone – to reduce unnec­es­sary trans­port and the use of plastic bottles. We are pleased that, thanks to BWT tech­nolo­gies, we are able to live sustain­ability when it comes to water and contribute to raising aware­ness to this topic.”

BWT not only stands for the avoid­ance of single-​​use plastic bottles but also for the treat­ment and refine­ment of your local water. Even if your tap water tastes great, there is no harm in enriching it with valu­able minerals such as magne­sium or trace elements such as zinc and sili­cate.

With magne­sium:

  • More power and less fatigue
  • Good for muscles, nerves and your metab­o­lism
  • Strengthens bones and teeth

With zinc:

  • For a strong immune system
  • Nour­ishes skin, hair and nails
  • Helps with wound healing

With sili­cate:

  • For mental fitness
  • Good for skin, hair and nails
  • Supports the cardio­vas­cular system

It has always been a matter of great concern to BWT to help people in need and to support projects that demon­strably make a contri­bu­tion to the sustain­able devel­op­ment of regions affected by poverty. As part of the b.water­MIS­SION project, a total of 10,000 wells are being built in Gambia, Tanzania and the surrounding area with the help of BWT, in order to provide local people with access to clean drinking water. Bottle Free Zones not only stand for the best water, they actu­ally change the world – sip by sip.
