The PROBLEM

Less than 2% of all collected PET plastic bottles get recycled back to bottles. This is a major environmental problem and a liability for consumer brands. Brands have publicly set ambitious goals for use of recycled PET in manufacturing but face severe supply shortage

Shrink sleeves - eye catching whole bottle labels - increase product sales but present the largest technical challenge in bottle recycling hurting brand value and drastically reducing recycled PET quality

                                       

 

Loose Caps and closures present technical challenges during segregation by recyclers due to small size thereby increasing contamination
