Recycled Plastics Resins
A revolutionary way to close the loop
Revolutions don’t happen by themselves. And they don’t always happen quickly. Forging partnerships, alliances, mutual strategies; innovating, growing, strengthening a resolve together. That’s how things get done and better lives are realized.
In the packaging marketplace today, REVOLOOP™ Enabling Mechanical Recycling and REVOLOOP™ Recycled Plastics Resins are building a foundation for change. Partnerships around the world are increasing the quality of the waste value chain and providing a dependable, consistent flow of desirable recyclable content. The result? Together, we can build a circular future with a growing portfolio of recycled plastics solutions – starting with high-quality mechanical recycled plastic resins with potential for numerous end-use applications.
The planning, technology, and care that supports REVOLOOP™ Recycled Plastics Resins are dedicated to making exceptional PCR resins. That means raising the standards of recycled products to meet final application requirements. Quality controls, improved processability, and batch-to-batch consistency – and much more to offer customers excellent PCR options.
REVOLOOP™ Recycled Plastics Resins offer many grades as a single-pellet solution. Fully formulated. Ready to go. That’s convenience and efficiency across the value chain. Simply choose the grade best suited for your requirements and move forward with confidence.
Decreasing plastic waste. Decreasing new resin production. Decreasing energy output. Decreasing greenhouse gases. REVOLOOP™ PCR resins present many sustainability advantages. Versus virgin resin use, and depending upon the percentage of PCR in specific formulations, recent LCA inventories suggest up to 34% reductions in CO2e emissions when using various REVOLOOP™ resins.* That’s making a difference!
Sustainability is at the forefront of our manufacturing processes, too. We are developing REVOLOOP™ Recycled Plastics Resins in accordance with strict international toxicological protocols to assure a safe work environment for everyone.
