Abstract

PET recycling is currently on a growth path and as a result, many brand owners have updated their recycled content goals over the past 12 months. Achieving this goal will not be easy though, due challenges such as the increase in bale contamination and the need to minimize energy consumption in order to achieve cost targets. The presentation will cover key technologies to mater flake to food contact approved pellet production or going direct to preforms.
