1. A narrow-necked, rigid or semirigid container, usually for holding liquids and semiliquids and with a closure that prevents spills, leakage and contamination. 2. A receptacle for intoxicating liquor. 3. A receptacle for milk or formula that is fed, especially to babies, in place of breast milk.

The bottle is one of the most recognizable objects found among marine debris. The oceans are filled with thousands of plastic bottles that are a clear indication of our global pollution problem.

Glass is a nonmetallic, inorganic material that can be made to be transparent or translucent as well as hard and brittle, making it a popular choice for both practical and decorative containers. Bottles have been in use since ancient times and are a classic symbol of human ingenuity, serving us as containers for water, wine, beer, spirits, oils, medicines and other liquids, and for perfumes, candies, and candles.

Plastic bottles are typically formed by blow molding, although there are many techniques. The four main plastics used in the manufacture of bottles are PET, PP, LDPE (Low-Density Polyethylene) or HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene). Each type has unique properties that determine how it can be shaped to create a bottle.

The neck is the part of a bottle that connects the body and base. It is also the most important part for a bottle’s strength. It is the area where the bottleā€™s shape is formed, and where the neck ring meets the finish. The neck ring is a flat surface that makes contact with the closure to form a seal and prevents leakage.

Bottles are manufactured through a number of processes, including injection and extrusion blow molding. The most common technique for manufacturing PET bottles is injection blow molding. The molded bottles are then formed into shapes using a machine called an ejector, which pushes air against the bottle to expand it. This process produces high-quality, cost-effective, and durable bottles for a variety of applications.
