FAQ

The certified LSP reactor process in producing r-PET, effectively removes harmful chemicals, making r-PET a safe choice for food packaging. This process elevates r-PET’s safety above average packaging materials, exceeding EFSA and FDA food safety standards.

  1. Environmental Sustainability:
  • Resource Efficiency: Utilizes existing plastic materials, reducing the need for virgin plastic production and conserving resources.
  • Waste Reduction: Diverts plastic waste from landfills and oceans, aiding in waste management and reduction.
  • Carbon Footprint: Generates lower carbon emissions compared to virgin PET production, contributing to climate change mitigation.
  • Higher Recyclability: r-PET has a higher recyclability rate compared to carton and paper, further promoting its eco-friendliness and resource efficiency.

    2. Economic Benefits:
  • Cost-Effectiveness: Often more cost-effective as it utilizes existing materials,  lowering manufacturing costs. Additionally, with Forpet, the foaming of the recycled PET results in cheaper and lighter products.
  • Market Demand: The global sustainable packaging market is poised to reach $533.9 billion by 2028. With 73% of global consumers willing to pay more for sustainable products, businesses are increasingly adopting sustainability as a core value, underlining a significant market demand.
  • Consumer and Regulatory Demand: Meets the growing consumer and regulatory demand for more sustainable packaging solutions, opening new market opportunities.
  1. Versatlity:

    • We prioritize recycled PET in both foamed and rigid products, enabling diverse packaging solutions tailored to distinct needs.

  2. Commitment to High Recycled Content:

    • Our products boast up to 100% recycled material, reducing reliance on virgin material production.

  3. Innovative Physical Foaming Process:

    • Unique physical foaming process, devoid of chemical foaming agents, sets us apart by promoting safer and environmentally-conscious production methods.

  4. One Integrated Production Facility:

    • Housing the entire production cycle in one plant ensures meticulous control over each phase without third-party interference, guaranteeing consistent quality and streamlined operations.

  5. Cost Efficiency:

    • Our packaging alternatives, like egg trays, lids, and cups, are significantly more cost-effective compared to cardboard and paper options, providing financial savings without compromising quality.

Several factors drive our cost savings:

  1. Technology & Equipment: We leverage innovative technology and state-of-the-art equipment for efficient production housing the entire cycle in one plant.
  2. Market Dynamics: The shift towards eco-friendly solutions and wood scarcity has increased demand for PET-based packaging, boosting our cost efficiency.
  3. Weight Reduction: FORPET technology allows us to halve the plastic weight per unit through PET density reduction via foaming, delivering cost benefits while promoting resource efficiency and sustainability.

RPET Recovering and RPET Flakes Creation:

  • Collection & Sorting: Gather and sort PET waste packaging.
  • Washing, Grinding & Sorting: Transform PET waste into RPET flakes through meticulous cleaning and grinding.

Granule Formation:

  • Liquid State Polycondensation: Convert RPET flakes into granules using the Liquid State Polycondensation Process.

Foaming Technology:

  • Extrusion: Extrude RPET granules with CO₂ and N₂ to initiate the foaming process.
  • Physically Foamed RPET Sheet Production: Produce lightweight and cost-effective sheets through physical foaming.

Final Product Processing:

  • Printing & Decoration: Print and decorate sheets for further processing, FFS applications, or thermoforming applications using water-based inks.
  • Cutting, Assembling & Ultrasonic Welding: Assemble cups, jars, folding boxes, and trays through cutting and ultrasonic welding.
  • Thermoforming: Craft lids and trays through a thermoforming process, ready for packaging applications.


For existing product designs, the average time for preparing samples is typically 2 weeks. However, if a new design is required, the timeline may vary. For new print designs, it can take up to 1 month, while new product shapes may require up to 3 months for sample preparation.

We determine the minimum volume requirement based on the specific product. Each product may have different minimum order quantities determined by our track volume.

Total PET recycling volume per factory is 16,000 tons/year. In finished packaging products annually, it is 800 mln lids or 130 million egg trays, 100 million cups, and 10,000 tons of film. Enough for a city of 4 million people.

Elevate your business with eco-conscious packaging that's both premium and price-wise. Partner with us for a greener, smarter future.
