PET: the most recycled plastic in the world

PET plastic is recognized by the number 1. Coincidentally, the material is in first place among the most recycled in the the world. Due to its purity, it simplifies the separation process and, because it is thermoplastic, it can be melted and molded countless times when heated without loss of quality. These characteristics make it a material of great economic value for the recycling industry.

The Present and Future of PET PCR in Brazil

In recent years, post-consumer recycled PET (PCR) has increased in value, significantly and positively changing the economic scenario of PET recycling in Brazil. The most recent census published by ABIPET, the Brazilian PET Industry Association shows that the amount of collected post-consumer PET returned to the level of 2014, above 300 thousand tons annually.
Also according to the census, the large volumes of post-consumer PET have recyclables traders who acquire the material from collectors. Thus, when the price of post-consumer PET scrap is appreciated, it increases the incentive for the collection of this material by these collectors, boosting recycling and the bottle-to-bottle process in the country.

Do you know what Recyclability is?

Despite being related, having recyclability and being recyclable are not necessarily the same thing for different reasons such as: collection barriers, high cost of recycling and economic inefficiency of the operation, unavailability of technology or lack of initiatives to reuse it on an industrial scale. For example, it is common for a material to be recyclable but not recycled.

Although multimaterial plastic packaging components are essentially recyclable, nowadays recycling this type of waste is still a challenge for the circular economy due to a lack of technologies for the efficient separation of these different components, which makes the process laborious and costly from start to finish.

How is plastic waste recycled?

Recycling has become a widely discussed topic in the course of the last few years. As the population has grown, so has waste generation, much of it plastic. The environment can not withstand this for a long time, nor can it reverse the situation by itself. For this reason, recycling is essential to reducing the volume of this waste that pollutes our cities, forests, rivers and oceans, and to reducing the exploitation of natural resources.

How to identify recyclable packaging?

Have you ever noticed that, on labels or on the plastic packaging itself, there is a triangular symbol formed by little arrows and inside of it, a number from 1 to 7?
Many times it goes unnoticed, but it is there for a very important reason: to identify the type of plastic that that package is made from in order to facilitate separation and recycling. For this reason, it is important to always check the label.
