EPBP and RecyClass sign off strategic collaboration.

Eastman to invest up to $1 billion to accelerate circular economy through building world’s largest molecular plastics recycling facility in France.

French President Emmanuel Macron and Eastman (NYSE:EMN) Board Chair and CEO Mark Costa will jointly announce Eastman’s plan to invest up to $1 billion in a material-to-material molecular recycling facility in France. This facility would use Eastman’s polyester renewal technology to recycle up to 160,000 metric tonnes annually of hard-to-recycle plastic waste that is currently being incinerated.

All bottles 100% rPET

Nutroma's goal for the future? That all the bottles are made of 100% rPET. This is how they strive for circular packaging. In other words: products that are recycled again and again so that they can make new ones. Nutroma is not quite there yet, but they're working on it. And that is an important first step.



PETCORE Europe is thrilled to announce the launch of its new logo as a part of the ongoing evolution of the association, representing the entire PET value chain and pioneering PET Circularity since 1993.

Our professional profile has grown and evolved over the last decades, so we felt a need to alter our logo reflecting who we are today and symbolizing our dynamic development towards PET circularity. 

In 2019, Petcore Europe launched the PET Monomer Recycling Special Industry Group - with initial engagement by companies involved in the development of new and innovative processes to recycle PET and Polyester waste by depolymerization and reusing its monomer constituents. Due to the growing interest in PET Monomer Recycling, Petcore Europe is happy to announce the 2021 PET Chemical Recycling: Depolymerization Forum. 

PETCORE Europe Labels WG was launched in 2020 and on the 13th of October it is going to hold its first webinar in order to share the most recent updates on its activities. This webinar will bring the light on key value-added topics for the recyclability of the labels.

Are you DRS-ready? 

The chances are that you’ll need to be, especially if the plastics packaging industry is going to get its collection rates on track.

Petcore Europe is delighted to announce that Styrenics Circular Solutions, Polyolefin Circular Economy Platform (PCEP) and EUMEPS joined cross-polymer initiative PolyREC to monitor, verify and report on Europe’s recycled plastic flows.

Moving from taxes that are not taxes to attempts to kick-start a surge in recycling: a review of capacities, collections and growth in rPET makes it painfully obvious that collection is the bottleneck to the market. 

New test procedure: EPBP has finalized the work on a new procedure to assess recyclability of pressure sensitive labels.
