ILPA GROUP AND THE R-PET CLOSED LOOP
The ILPA Group, of which ILIP is a member, has vertically integrated the R-PET supply chain and has a cutting-edge recycling plant in AMP Recycling Ferrara, where it mechanically recycles post-consumer PET food containers and bottles to obtain, in line with the circular economy approach, secondary raw materials in the form of flakes, which it can then use in its products.
THE VERTICAL INTEGRATION OF R-PET: A CLOSED LOOP THAT OPENS UP TO THE ENVIRONMENT.
T2T R-PET® is the acronym of “tray to tray” in recycled PET, of R-PET trays produced by recycling post-consumer R-PET or PET trays. This pursues the goal of the “closed loop”, not only within the ILPA Group, thanks to the vertical integration of recycling, but also thanks to the recycling of PET food packaging. All ILIP’s R-PET packaging is produced not only with bottles, but also with recycled PET trays and punnets.
For us at Ilip, the word sustainability begins with three “Rs”…
R-PET + Closed Loop = ILIP unique’s added value
Reduction of weights = CO2 reduction
Reduction of the weight of the packaging by decreasing its thickness, without compromising its function of use, consumer safety, ease of use or hygiene and shelf life of the packaged product, is environmentally and economically sustainable.
