Environmental impact - recycling
For three decades, Plastic Technologies has been an independent, comprehensive, consulting partner on recycling and environmental packaging issues.
Today, more than ever, it is critical to know how your packaging choices are impacting the environment--particularly due to growing material reclamation initiatives. Before you commit to what your final packaging components will be, we can assist you in determining the recyclability of a bottle, thermoform, resin, flake, additive, colorant, label, etc. One wrong decision can mean that your package will adversely impact the recycling stream.
The greater the number of these problematic packages entering the recycling stream, the higher the chance that recycled content with less than desirable attributes will make its way back into your process.
Our testing protocols will let you know what will happen in these recycling scenarios: bottle-to-bottle, bottle-to-sheet, bottle-to-strapping, bottle-to- textile fiber and thermoform recycling applications. Our one-stop approach ensures rapid and accurate results.
We would be happy to review your package with you, to make sure your brand is the very best environmental steward it can be. For more details on our robust services, please visit PTI Recycle.
