Advise and share knowledge about the various post-consumer packaging collection schemes we have worked with. We have promoted best practices to optimize their cost and quality. We have worked and assisted various National collection and recovery schemes, including PRS ( PET Recycling Switzerland), Returpak Sweden, ARA Austria, EcoEmballages France, Fost+ Belgium, EcoEmbes Spain, Ecoce Mexico, Coca-Cola Recycling USA (KOR), and Coca-Cola Femsa Mexico (KOF).
We have shared best practices with National post-consumer packaging recovery organizations and other packaging collection entities relative to models of cooperation and collaboration between collectors and recyclers, with a target to establish sustainable closed and open loop systems.
PET and Plastics
We have developed and assisted to set-up plastics and PET bottle-to-bottle recycling plants lay-out for flake washing step of processes. We optimized decontamination processes to improve efficiencies, yields, and succeed in meeting the quality requirements of final clients. Examples in the area of quality improvements are reduction of excessive yellowing in recycled PET material or yield improvements.
We establish Quality Systems at plants with laboratory equipment selection, preparation for quality audits of plants in line with potential clients’ needs, this includes leading beverage companies.
Quality and Yield
We assist in solving quality and yield problems at plants. Constantly helping to improve the quality of the final product ( i.e. removing or reducing PVC , O2 scavengers contamination), and the operating efficiencies ( i.e. removing bottlenecks due to bad flow of flakes).
We train production and QA personnel at recycling plants in GMP and in better quality measurement techniques.
We have expertise in assisting during injection and blowing trials at end-using companies with food grade recycled PET. We assist to perform recyclability studies for new innovative plastics packaging materials, according to industry recognized protocols, including the North American APR (Association of Post-Consumer Plastics Recyclers) Critical Guidance Documents or the European EPBP ( European PET Bottle Platform) Recyclability Protocols.
We assist in obtaining health regulatory approvals in various countries, as we have contributed to in the EU, in Mercosur countries to facilitate reuse of recycled PET in food contact applications.
We assist you to market your final products throughout our vast network of contacts.
