APET, rPET and Bio-PET are 100% recyclable and are collected by UK kerbside household rubbish collections. PET is a recyclable and reusable plastic which can be Super-cleaned to create a multi-use plastic from both post-consumer waste and post-industrial waste.
Charpak’s PET packaging contains a minimum of 50% PCW (post consumer waste) and up to 40% post industrial waste.
Charpak’s waste is returned to re-processors to be Super-cleaned and re-processed to create plastic sheet for reuse in new packaging.
99.8% of Charpak’s rPET contains food grade recycled plastics.
Clear rPET is widely recycled
Our Bio-PET is produced of a waste product from sugar cane that is converted to Ethanol to form the basis of a standard PET product. This means no fossil fuels are used to produce it. This product can be recycled straight back into standard PET.
