Last year, EcoBlue had committed to set up a world-class second recycling facility for PET, HDPE, and PP in Thailand, which will be completed later this year. The progress at the site is going well. Equipment from the best technology suppliers like Starlinger and Tomra is now on its way. The upcoming facility will help brands achieve their 2025 sustainability targets.
Some of the key features to look out for at the facility are as follows:
Ecoblue’s food-grade rPET
High-quality food-grade rPET made from 100% PCR waste. Thailand’s first recycling company to receive the Letter of No Objection by the US FDA for its 3D Pure rPET for Bottle and PET Film manufacturing.
Compliance to regulations such as Regulation (EU)
3D Pure Filtration Technology for high-end applications like PET film and filament yarn.
HDPE and PP recycling with de-odoring process
Sustainable alternative to virgin resin
Diverting ocean-bound plastics with the new facility.
Ecoblue is a recycling company that has developed capabilities to produce high-quality rPET and rPP from post-consumer and industrial waste, providing a sustainable substitute to virgin resin. It is a pioneer in offering high-quality rPET with FDA approval for the PET film application, which has been proven to work well for films with 90% rPET content. EcoBlue’s High IV Bottle grade rPET can be used up to 100% for clear bottles suitable for food contact.
Ecoblue also works towards the circularity of resources by bringing in difficult to recycle materials like films and laminates in the recycling stream. This enables materials that would have otherwise ended up in landfills to get a second life.
