PET RECYCLING

At ALPLA, recycled PET (rPET) is primarily used for the production of new preforms. With this product, a distinction is primarily made between food-grade and non-food-grade materials, and then between colours.

By using rPET, greenhouse gas emissions can be reduced by up to 94 per cent in comparison to virgin material.
