INEOS has launched world’s first high-quality polymer for caps made with 50% recycled bottle caps diverted from waste.
INEOS Olefins & Polymers in partnership with Forever Plast SpA, a leading polymer recycling technologies operator in Italy, have developed a range of new Polyethylene grades that mirror INEOS virgin grades and perfectly fit injection moulding and compression moulding machines.
The new Recycl-IN products take Post Consumer Recyclate (PCR) from used bottle caps and carefully blend them with highly engineered virgin polymer to create new high-quality caps.
Over the next five years 6.5 billion bottle caps will be diverted from the waste stream to be recycled.
As part of its ongoing drive to support a more circular economy and significantly increase plastics recycling, INEOS is expanding its range of Recycl-IN polymers into the Polyethylene non-food caps market.
