-SGR obtains a favourable opinion from EFSA

SGR, the recycling unit of the SGT Group, obtains a favourable opinion from EFSA for its PET bottles recycling process.

This food-grade recycled plastic, named CIRPET for “circular” and “rPET”, has been officially approved by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). Thanks to its state-of-the-art recycling line combining technical and energy performance, the SGT Group can offer its customer base a secure supply of food grade rPET.

With this modern and scalable recycling unit, the SGT Group confirms its commitment to sustainable development by recycling used PET bottles and increasing the percentage of recycled products in the production of new preforms.

“The wheel has thus come full circle, stresses SGT-SGR plant manager Jean-Marc Wiencek. EFSA’s endorsement is veritable recognition of the Group’s efforts and investment to bring to fruition its transition to a circular model.”

With an annual capacity of 12,000 tonnes, SGR produces premium quality rPET equivalent to virgin PET, as evidenced by its manufacturing process, now recognized compliant with Europe’s strictest health requirements.

When SGR takes delivery of PET flakes, it performs 4 additional grading processes: optical, metal, colour and material. Everything is meticulously inspected.

“Our recycling line is at the cutting edge of the latest technologies currently available on the market, enabling us to produce rPET of the highest quality”, explains Mr Wiencek.

The site uses a vacuum-assisted Solid State Polycondensation (SSP) technology that guarantees industrial security at all stages of the thermal process and eliminates all remaining impurities on a molecular scale. SGR also has an extruding machine with underwater cutting and an ultra-efficient decontamination system that produces rPET pellets whose visible qualities (transparency and colour), mechanical qualities (viscosity) and organoleptic qualities match those of virgin PET. The whole process requires little consumption of energy.  PET-bottles-recycling – Europe-PE-and-PP

-Trioworld launching PCR film in Sweden

In partnership with supermarket chain Lidl, Trioworld is launching a post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic film in Sweden.

Approved for frozen food packaging, Trioworld has developed a new multi-layer Loop packaging. The project was initiated together with RISE and Lidl Future Initiatives (LFI) with the aim to develop a recyclable food contact material containing PCR.

Trioworld’s solution is powered by a five-layer concept that has met all the required tests and simulations as required by the European Regulations for Food Contact Material.  PET-bottles-recycling – Europe-PE-and-PP

The packaging is made of 30 per cent recycled PCR and is fully recyclable after use. It will see its first commercial use as a packaging solution for Lidl Sweden’s cinnamon buns and cardamom buns, hitting the shelves this week.

“Evert Paardekooper, Division President Consumer Packaging at Trioworld, said: “With this innovation we can confidently say we’re a leading manufacturer within sustainable flexible packaging. Trioworld’s multi-layer Loop offers Lidl a packaging solution that is not only fully recyclable but made from 30 per cent post-consumer recycled material and reduces their carbon footprint.”
