SUSTAINABILITY AND UPCYCLING

A new concept in recycling

WE ALREADY GIVE PACKAGING A SECOND LIFE. BUT, WHAT IF WE COULD MAKE ALL OF IT LAST A LIFETIME?

Our ecosystem of companies, driven by Formaspack, has come together to drive upcycling in the plastics sector in Europe.

By expanding our activity, creating new companies and forging strategic alliances with other leaders in the PET recycling sector, we have developed an ecosystem to bolster this complete upcycling process in Europe’s plastic industry.

Thanks to this circular business model, we encompass all the activities of the PET value chain and can offer our customers and suppliers a value proposition based on quality, operational agility and competitiveness.

Recycling ≠ Upcycling

Every time plastic is recycled it loses some properties. This means that a given unit of plastic can be used to create products, but they will be of increasingly lower quality. Ultimately, there comes a point at which their viscosity prevents them from being recycled.

This is where upcycling comes in

Upcycling is the use of waste to manufacture new materials of higher quality and greater environmental and economic value.

Upcycling is a Circular Economy practice.

Its biggest difference with recycling is that the end result is of higher quality and greater environmental value, extending the life of the waste and reducing the consumption of virgin raw materials.

Thus, when we recycle, we extend the life of plastic, but when we upcycle we manage for the same plastic to last a lifetime.

We recover PET waste, increasing packaging’s value by giving it infinite lives.
