Leading The Way In Circular Packaging Solutions

Since 2012, we have diverted 96,000 tonnes of post-consumer waste and have ambitious plans to expand this in the future.

Why Recycle?

Avoid Upstream Energy Use

Recycling plastic film avoids the upstream energy necessary to produce one ton of new product and saves about 2 tons of CO2 annually.

Increase Productivity

Recycling increases the productivity of already manufactured materials, therefore reducing the need to extract more virgin material

(APCO, 2021)

Lower Environmental Impacts

Recycling lowers the environmental and climate impacts of packaging overall, including less litter

(APCO, 2021)

A Competitive Advantage

Recycling forms a stronger, more innovative and collaborative, globally competitive packaging industry.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

It is conservatively estimated that there is a 30 percent carbon saving for recycled plastic.

Join the Future economy

Repurposing soft plastics is not merely a function of present need but is truly the next frontier of environmental and economic innovation.

What is Oxo- Biodegradable

Oxo-biodegradable plastics contain special additives that degrade polymers into smaller pieces. The additives catalyze the breakdown of the long molecular chains in the plastic material, causing the plastic to become brittle and fragment sooner into smaller bits when exposed to sunlight, heat, and microorganisms. It settles more easily than an ordinary plastic bag with air, and occupies less space. Hence, giving oxo-biodegradation a distinct advantage over prior methods for degrading plastic.

In a landfill, Oxo-biodegradable plastic will quickly degrade when exposed to the elements (sunlight, heat, and microorganisms) as they assist the degradation process. Unlike other types of degradable plastic, Oxo-biodegradable plastic will not release methane as it degrades. That is another advantage over prior forms of biodegradable plastic.

Are oxo-biodegradable plastic recyclable?

Yes, Oxo-biodegradable plastic bags are recyclable and reusable prior to the onset of degradation.

What happens to oxo-biodegradable plastic in a landfill?

Microorganisms present in the open environment will aid in the degradation process.

Do oxo-biodegradable plastic bags contain corn-starch?

No, the Oxo-biodegradable bags do not contain corn-starch.

Do oxo-biodegradable plastic feel different?

No, you will not notice a difference between Oxo-biodegradable and conventional regular plastic. It retains the same properties and strength as regular plastics during its product life.

Will Oxo-biodegradation emit methane?

No, unlike other degradation processes Oxo-biodegradation will not emit methane, reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

What does it cost?

Very little, because the additive represents only 1% of the polymer. Above that, Oxo-biodegradable plastics products can be made with the same machines and workforce as ordinary plastic.

What Is Compostable ?

Compostable materials are organic and will decompose leaving only nutrients that can be returned to the earth in just a matter of months. Compostable materials do not leave anything behind. The shelf life of a compostable bag is approximately 8 – 12 months upon production completion. However they do require composting conditions to break down such as a composting bin.
