From the classic Alpha Sirop bottle to the widely used Petpacker, the range of packaging in recycled PET available at Pont has been widely extended. R-PET material (transparent) is currently the only recycled material that has food approval. This material is made from recycled bottles from the current disposal and return systems in Europe.
The availability of food-grade R-PET material is somewhat limited and could result in material shortages in the future. To make sure that R-PET stays in the loop of recycling, the EU is implementing new regulations on disposal and return systems and minimal recycled content in plastic packaging.
The colour of recycled PET is not completely clear in comparison with virgin PET, this is caused by labels, and caps that are integrated in the recycling process. Therefore the colour of recycled PET containers can vary from one batch to another. We’d be happy to advise on the best design options for recycling.
Proposing more eco-friendly packaging solutions which do not compromise on design and availability but also performance, as well as complying with the newest EU regulations is the main goal for Pont. It has led us to change our range to having the largest range of sustainable packaging to offer. Whether it is recycled PET, recycled PE or biobased PE, Pont is offering you the opportunity to get the sustainable version of your actual petrol-based packaging. And of course, since the start of Pont in 1906, glass products remain amongst the best alternatives being almost endlessly recyclable, from food jars to sirop bottles we have a solution for all your packaging needs.
