RPET LATAM: Food-contact Application, Market Trends & Project Update

Brand-owners are waking up to the impact their plastic use have on the planet! They are increasingly including rPET as a sustainable alternative to virgin PET in their packaging solution. The new pressures to reduce the environmental impact, leads packaging companies to consider new investments and undertake major expansion plan to cater to market changes.

For instance, Enka de Colombia is expanding their PCR facilities to produce PET resin suitable for food-contact application, & the company will increase the collection levels doubling the benefits for Colombia.

With newly developed VACUNITE® bottle-to-bottle technology, EREMA redefines the benchmark for performance in bottle-to-bottle recycling: highly efficient decontamination, best colour values, top IV stability, low energy consumption during the entire process and the compact design meet even the highest demands in the production of food-grade rPET pellets.

Coexpan – having launched a 100 percent rPET food grade sheet, will be sharing a presentation on Rigid Packaging Developments And Solutions of RPET & PET For FMCG.

Coca Cola’s World Without Waste commitment – what is the progress in Latin America? A bold commitment such as collecting and recycling 100% of what they sell by 2030 demands a step change on ‘business as usual’. Refillable bottles have become one of the core strategies to help Coca-Cola Brasil meet their zero-waste goal. Find out first hand from Coca Cola Brazil their sustainability strategies and plans for the region.
