COMMUNITY: silver plastics tritt der R-Cycle Community bei

silver plastics® GmbH & Co. KG – leading manufacturer of plastic packaging in the food sector – has joined the R-Cycle Community. Since 1967, silver plastics has been producing up to one billion certified packages per year on a total of 56,000 square meters of factory space in Troisdorf, North Rhine-Westphalia (Germany).

As a manufacturer of plastic packaging and with a view to social responsibility for future generations, silver plastics is consistently gearing its strategy towards a closed-loop recycling economy. From recycling-friendly packaging design and the use of recycled materials to innovative closed-loop solutions, the company is meeting this challenge in all areas. Here, silver plastics is focusing in particular on PET as the material of the future in the food sector, as it already enables a closed loop today. In combination with R-Cycle’s digital product passport, fully recyclable PET products can also be identified more precisely in the post-consumer waste stream and recycled to a higher quality.

Sebastian Kremer, CSO at silver plastics, explains: “Only when the entire value chain works together on a solution and everyone takes a step in the same direction will we arrive at sustainable solutions. Here, R-Cycle offers the best approach from our point of view to make all relevant information digitally available for a closed loop.”

Dr. Benedikt Brenken, Director R-Cycle, adds: “silver plastics is an absolute innovation leader when it comes to sustainable food packaging, with a clear commitment to circular products. In this respect, silver plastics and R-Cycle complement each other ideally to fully exploit the potential of sustainable packaging solutions.”
