Optimizing efficiency for the PET bottle life cycle
In collaboration with their technology partners, Rieckermann recently conducted a webinar to address current challenges faced in PET bottle production, specifically the rising concerns about plastic waste pollution in the environment. At the present time Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate (r-PET) is an increasingly popular reusable material. Derived from Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) and commonly known as polyester, the r-PET material can contain either pre- or post-consumer PET bottles.
Against this background, the webinar focused on the available sustainable solutions in PET preform production, bottle waste washing, and pelletizing processes geared towards a circular economy. Gathering industry experts and representatives from leading companies in an information-packed virtual conference, the webinar featured a number of topics, including:
Efficient production of PET preforms through competitive mould technology
PET bottle waste washing and recycling technology for bottle-to-bottle application, textiles, and others
US FDA and EFSA approved high quality r-PET super-clean recycling processes.
With these solutions, the industry can produce r-PET materials that are not only cost and energy efficient but are also safer for the environment. In addition, clean-up companies are able to reduce their carbon footprint and achieve sustainable and optimized operations. For instance, the approximate energy used to produce r-PET fabrics is about 30-35% less than that of virgin polyester. So, by meeting the demand for recycled polyester our oceans and landfills will be saved from plastic materials, particularly water bottles.
