A new polymer made from post-consumer packaging has been launched by RPC bpi recycle products

Developed and manufactured in the UK, SUSTANE aims to replace virgin polymer while being 100% recyclable and fully traceable.

According to RPC Group, the polymers have been proven to perform in a wide range of non-food applications.

This includes a shrink film made launched by X-EnviroShrink which uses a minimum of 30% post-consumer recyclate.

This has been adopted by soft drinks supplier Radnor Hills for its multi-packed bottle water.

Gerry McGarry, MD of RPC bpi recycled products, said: “Products made with SUSTANE can be recycled and used again and again, saving natural resources and reducing plastic in the environment.

“We go beyond standard industry practices to provide our customers with solutions to help them meet their sustainable targets and reduce their carbon footprint.”

RPC bpi recycled products operates four UK sites.
