Recycled PP compounds in rigid packaging: Advancing circularity in packaging

Circularity in packaging

Due to their high versatility, plastics have become the leading material of our modern economy. However, only 14% of all plastic packaging is collected for recycling after use. As a result, leading brand owners and retailers have pledged to increase the amount of recycled plastics in packaging to give waste a second life. Even so, a very limited amount of recyclate becomes packaging due to demanding application requirements. This is because brand owners and retailers haven't been able to rely on a consistent supply of high quality recyclates – until now.

Borcycle™ is an evolving recycling technology that transforms polyolefin-based waste streams into value-adding solutions for demanding applications.

Borcycle™ in rigid packaging:

  • Addresses the value chain's sustainability targets in demanding applications, including caps and closures, thin wall packaging containers and lids. Offers rPP compounds with 25-50% recycling content, which can reduce C02 emissions by up to 15%.
  • Leverages our recycling and special compounding expertise with proprietary Borstar multimodal and Borstar® Nucleation Technology (BNT).
  • Offers rPP compounds with 25-50% recycling content, which can reduce C02 emissions by up to 15%.
