Light shines negatively on next-gen PET bottles
from Greener Package
A new research study conducted by Plastic Technologies, Inc., a global company involved in PET package development, found that exposing post-consumer bottles to ultraviolet light prior to recycling has a severe impact on the physical properties and visual attributes of next-generation, recycled PET bottles. Intrinsic viscosity, yellowing, and haze are among the attributes that provide challenges when using rPET along with virgin material.
