Packaging closures made of post-consumer recycled resin
Packaging companies Borealis, Austria, and Menshen, Germany, have collaborated on a series of 10 packaging closures based on Borcycle, an evolving recycling technology which transforms polyolefin-based waste streams into value-adding solutions. Borcycle is used to manufacture a range of compounds made of recycled polyolefins (rPO) for use in sophisticated rigid packaging applications.
These closures are predominantly made for use in laundry and homecare. The companies use a polypropylene (PP) compound made of 50% post-consumer recycled (PCR) content.
