At PRSE, Berry Global will detail its latest investment in working towards the production of certified FDA post-consumer recycled polypropylene (rPP) for use in packaging.
A new facility currently under construction in Leamington Spa, UK, will be able not only to recycle plastics, but also wash, sort, and sift them to produce food-grade materials with a target purity standard of 99.9%.
The Leamington Spa operation will employ Berry’s proprietary, world-leading CleanStream process, which delivers a best-in-class closed-loop system to mechanically process domestically recovered household waste polypropylene back into consumer packaging. Initial lifecycle assessment by Berry has found that material produced through the CleanStream process has an 80% lower CO2 footprint than virgin resin.
