Process 'upcycles' waste plastics to virgin-quality PET
from Plastics Technology
Like so many technology start-ups, it began with a vision and in a garage. Three years later, Loop Industries’ vision of turning post-consumer PET into virgin-quality material as a result of technology developed in that garage has become reality. The firm’s proprietary “upcycling” process breaks waste PET down to its chemical building blocks, separating out any impurities such as dyes, additives, and foodstuffs. These building blocks are then combined to create virgin-quality PET that can be used in food-grade plastic packaging.
