Unilever, Indorama, Ioniqa form partnership to develop fully circular solution for PET recycling

Posted on : 28 May, 2018

Food and beverages major Unilever along with  chemicals company Ioniqa and resin producer Indorama Ventures (IVL) are coming together to develop a solution for PET recycling that is completely circular in nature.
The solution aims to develop a food packaging system that converts PET waste into virgin grade PET material. The solution breaks down non-recycled PET waste such as colored PET bottles into base molecule level by separating the color and other contaminants. The result is a PET material that is comparable to virgin grade PET.
The solution is not yet industrialised but if it can be implemented on a large scale, it can be a huge milestone as all PET can be converted back into high quality, food-grade packaging!
The technology is now being implemented at a 10,000-tonne capacity plant in the Netherlands. Soon afterwards, Ionica will supply to Indorama, that will convert this Ioniqa product into PET resin to be used in Unilever’s packaging.
Unilever expects to have this circular PET ready for use by the third quarter of 2019 – very much in line with its commitment that all of its plastics packaging will become reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025.
Will Latin American companies adopt such advanced PET recycling solutions? For more information on latest PET packaging and recycling technologies attend 16th LAPET Latin America PET Packaging, Applications & Recycling Summit on 15-16 October, 2018 in Mexico City.
