Unleashing the potential of r-PET
Imagine the potential value for using r-PET for your new packaging, surely lowering your production cost, and maximize your profits.
On this global movement for Waste Reduction, we sought to focus on a solution that holds a wealth of environmental benefits: r-PET. Its use allows to save 50% carbon emissions versus virgin PET, to reduces reliance on fossil fuels, among others. What’s more, increasing r-PET production and usage will help drive the circular economy, keeping plastic within its economy and out of nature, a commitment that is dear to us as a company and so promising for the future Industrial sector.
r-PET & Our Commitment to the Environment
Using r-PET (recycled plastic) as an alternative to Polyester is a huge step forward on the path toward a greener, safer and cleaner future. Create several major advantages in the realm of energy and cost.
- Made from recycled plastic meaning less plastic being produced
- No additional chemicals (other than cleaning detergents)
- 59% less energy
- 32% less CO2 emissions
- It takes 27 pounds of glass versus 2 pounds of plastic to deliver 1,000 ounces of a beverage
- At the end of life, 1 kg of r-PET can keep 60 water bottles out of landfill when recycled correctly
r-PET Through Sustainable Packaging
SOKA proudly announce ECOPET as our main product for 100% eco-friendly recyled PET (r-PET).
This will provide a type of packaging that has the same transparency and resistance as the one obtained from virgin raw material and that, at the same time, guarantees perfect sustainability at every level, dramatically reducing the environmental impact. In fact, r-PET 100% is environmentally sustainable, as it uses only recycled materials; it is also economically sustainable, as the difference of cost compared to the usual virgin raw material is moderate, and finally it is sustainable with respect to food safety, thanks to the certified process of recycling of post-consumer waste materials.
