rPET school milk cup: fully recyclable cup made from recycled material
Company:
PET-MAN GmbH, Starlinger & Co. G.m.b.H. viscotec, Greiner Packaging GmbH, Schulmilchbauern Oberösterreich
Country: Austria
Category: Food
Three companies (recycling technology producer, sheet producer, packaging producer) and Austrian school milk producers established a closed recycling loop for yoghurt cups. The cups are made from 100% post-consumer recycled material (rPET), are mono-material and unprinted, thus fully recyclable. rPET cups cause one-third less CO2 emissions than glass bottles.
Since March 2021, the Austrian school milk producers use the new rPET cups. The implementation of the closed rPET school milk cup loop demonstrates what is necessary to establish circular packaging solutions for dairy products: (1) material choice rPET, (2) design for recycling, (3) collaboration along the value chain.
