Universal packaging made of post-consumer material for closed raw material cycles

Universal packaging made of post-consumer material for closed raw material cycles

Environmental protection, climate protection and the careful use of resources are more of a hot topic than ever. Recyclability of packaging is an essential requirement in industry. Plastic is a raw material in the recycling stream and should be treated as such. Replacing “virgin raw material” with recycled plastic contributes directly to the conservation of resources. Only about half of all plastics from packaging waste are reused today in Germany.

More than 90% of the PCR (post-consumer recycling) material is used as granulate to produce “Pöppelmann Blue” packaging. Coloured “recycling blue”, the packaging is safely sorted after use and returned to the recycling stream through the yellow plastics bin to be processed into new granulate for further use. This ensures that the material cycle is closed, fossil resources are conserved and the reused plastic content from packaging waste increases.
