Reactive Recycling for PET and r-PET

Reactive Recycling offers an easy, fast and cost efficient method to upcycle your r-PET without use of the time consuming and costly Solid-State polymerization (SSP).

No additional equipment or investment needed – simply add the products to the extruder together with the r-PET.

For the recycling companies:

  • Enable use of lower quality resources and a wider range of r-PET sources
  • Increase the quality of the r-PET and eliminate or reduce the need of Solid-state polymerization (SSP)
  • Upcycle r-PET from trays to higher intrinsic viscosity (IV) bottle grade

For the converter:

  • Enable use of higher concentrations of r-PET in the packaging product
  • Enable sourcing and use of alternative sources of r-PET with lower IV
  • Increased melt strength and more stable process for faster throughput
  • Improved mechanical properties and performance of the products
