PET is reborn at Inline Plastics
Packaging For a Better Planet
Inline Plastics is the first thermoformed food packaging manufacturer to use post-consumer content made with cutting edge technology, called Advance Recycling. We call this PET, rDPET (recycled Direct to Sheet PET).
Through our reborn process, all our PET products are made with 10% post-consumer recycled PET.
We believe that integrity and transparency are an important part of doing business and this is why we have an independent third-party, SCS Global Services, to verify our post-consumer recycled material claim. By showing data behind our claim, we build trust with our customers.
The advanced recycling process breaks down post-consumer flake into its molecular building blocks: PTA & MEG molecules
These post-consumer molecules are then polymerized with virgin ones using an environmentally friendly ‘direct-to-sheet’ process
Through this proprietary process
plastic can be turned into clean, new plastic again and again, preserving quality, so it doesn’t have to end up in a landfill
Our thermoforming production is powered in part by solar panels
