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.
