ALPLA's Thin-Wall Containers with rPET rePETec revolutionize Food Packaging

We are proud to have developed a game-changing innovation in the packaging industry.

Together with our partners ENGEL and Brink, we have created thin-wall containers using standard PET and a one-step injection moulding process with a variable content of rPET, up to 100% possible. Our transparent containers with integrated in-mould labelling (IML) offer wall-thickness of min. 0.32 mm. The enormous material reduction makes them perfect for sustainable food packaging, such as dairy products.

This innovation is particularly exciting as it helps manufacturers meet the requirements of the European Plastics Pact and avoid penalties and costs. Furthermore, it is a first step to establish bottle-to-cup or even cup-to-bottle recycling alongside the bottle-to-bottle loop.
