Returnable PET bottles made using 25% PCR

Plastics packaging business Petainer is working with bottled water companies, carbonated drinks producers and brewers across Europe to put its new ‘greener’ refillable bottles into use.

The new bottle is made using more than 25% post-consumer ‘one-way’ recycled PET, but is claimed to have the exactly same performance characteristics as a refillable bottle made entirely from virgin material. The total PET used per filling is 90 per cent lower for a refillable container, which is improved even further with this development in the use of post-consumer recyclate.
