It’s something that many of us take for granted: you twist the lid off a plastic bottle, consume the iced tea or soft drink within, and never give a second thought to the container except when you drop it in the recycling bin. If the bottle is poorly designed, you might complain about its flimsiness, and how it collapses if squeezed too hard, but as long as the thing doesn’t spill all over your lap, who cares?

Hansong Huang does. As the director of advanced engineering at Amcor Rigid Plastics, he and his colleagues spend their days designing plastic containers that are both lightweight and strong, yet meet the additional customer requirements of being aesthetically pleasing and cost-effective to manufacture.
