Packaging with minor defects that has not passed strict quality checks is considered as waste. This waste is first sorted, then sent to a production system where it is processed into PET plastics and delivered to a recycling plant. There it is turned into granulate, which will be used to make new packaging.
We sort and recycle our production waste from the very beginning.
As we know, the consumption of products in PET containers is growing every year and with it the volume of plastic container waste. As a type of garbage with a long decomposition period, plastic bottles pose a great environmental threat to our planet.Over the last decades, the issue of PET waste recycling has become a high priority in European countries, which is also supported by legislation.Elfapack plant, as the largest manufacturer of PET containers in Ukraine, has joined the global idea of using recycled materials for the production of its line of packaging solutions. We are close to the ideas of economical reuse of polymer products, preservation of human health and cleanliness of the surrounding space.
How does recycled plastic save the environment?
Elfapack's strategic priority is to maintain a balance between production efficiency and environmental preservation. We strive to be a highly productive yet harmonious company when working with a material as complex as polymer. The PET containers we produce help our customers to store and transport many wonderful products in the fields of cosmetics, household chemicals and foodstuffs. However, like any packaging, PET bottles, cans and jars have a short life span and are an endless source of landfills with a decomposition period of up to 150 years. The fact that polymer waste has a negative impact on the environment and human health poses new challenges for manufacturers of plastic containers and packaging. Following the global trends of recycling and reuse of packaging waste, Elfapack is ready to offer its customers a significant part of the PET packaging range made of recycled eco raw material rPET.
