The chemical recycled polypropylene provides the same quality and foodsafety standards than the virgin material, therefore making it suitable for food contact.

Recycled Polypropylene (rPP) Food Grade

Food grade rPP is obtained through a pyrolysis process consisting of the oxygen free combustion of non recyclable plastic materials in order to obtain a pyrolytic fuel equivalent to the fraction of petroleum used to obtain the polymers. This type of polypropylene provides the same quality and food safety standards than the original material, therefore making it suitable for food contact. 

Chemical recycling. An upcycling process.

As opposed to mechanical recycling, recycled chemicals undergo an upcycling process whereby materials that could not be recovered otherwise are now used to produce new, high added value and food grade virgin plastic. In this manner, we prevent those materials from ending up outside the recycling system by instead bringing them into the reutilisation and waste recovery cycle. 

Currently, availability for this type of material is low and the cost is higher than that of standard polypropylene. However, this recycled PP provides great advantages, such as obtaining virgin PP with the same mechanical, chemical and food safety features. In addition to being suitable for food contact, it does not require the replacement of modification of any moulds. So the percentage of recycled material used can be gradually increased with time. 

  • Chemical recycling process

    1. Ecodesign. Optimization of weight, logistics and recyclability
    2. Upcycling. Materials that could not be recovered otherwise are now used to produce food grade virgin plastic.
    3. Chemical recycling. Food grade rPP is obtained through a pyrolysis process of non recyclable plastic materials
    4. Food grade virgin raw material
