Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate (rPET)

‘rPET’ stands for ‘recycled polyethylene terephthalate’, and can also be referred to as ‘recycled PET’. This is a plastic material manufactured from repurposed waste PET.

Recycling facilities separate recyclable PET from contaminants and non-recyclable materials. This can then be easily processed and formed into rPET packaging. ILIP make their own rPET for punnet production at their state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Italy.

By recycling pre-existing plastic content, rPET avoids the continued depletion of virgin plastic materials such as oils and petrochemicals. All Ilip punnets use 95% previously recycled materials. rPET boasts a reduced carbon footprint over virgin PET and also helps reduce the volume of PET products that are disposed of improperly by consumers. rPET is also able to be recycled again after use.

rPET is ideal for sustainable fresh produce packaging as it is highly durable, water-repellent, resistant to excessive heat and chemical contamination and can be moulded into desired shapes with absolute precision.
