Chemical Recycling Enables Production of Polyester Film Containing 70% Post-Consumer Recyclate.

The development of these films was made possible thanks to investments in chemical recycling. This technology uses post-consumer PET bottles. The bottle flakes are depolymerized to monomers and in the further polymerization transformed to PCR PET resins suitable for extrusion into BOPET films. This operation can be repeated indefinitely and the BOPET produced with this technology are suitable for direct food contact in accordance to USFDA and European legislation.
