For us at Ilip, the word sustainability begins with three “Rs”…
We are one of the few European groups that can ensure total control and a closed cycle in PET recycling in all production phases required to produce a new rPET food packaging: from the selection of post-consumer material, to washing, grinding, extrusion. and thermoforming.
Our vertical integration allows us complete traceability of the material and, since we have received approval from EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) to produce rPET Food Grade for direct contact with food, we can increase the content of recycled material up to 100%. Therefore we can certainly declare that we are a successful example of the circular economy and that we are at the forefront of promoting the culture of recycling in plastic food packaging.
For all these reasons we participate in specific working groups of the main European Organizations aimed at further closing the cycle to get to the specific recycling of food trays.
R-PET + Closed Loop = ILIP unique’s added value
Reduction of weights = CO2 reduction
Reduction of the weight of the packaging by decreasing its thickness, without compromising its function of use, consumer safety, ease of use or hygiene and shelf life of the packaged product, is environmentally and economically sustainable.
Ilip is part of the ILPA Group, a European leader in the transformation of plastic and bioplastic raw materials. We develop and make available to large-scale distribution, modern catering and specialists in the fruit and vegetable sector and the agri-food industry, innovative and sustainable packaging solutions in thermoformed plastic and bioplastic.
