UK project: Zwart kunststof recyclen tot foodgrade verpakkingen
Viridor has joined forces with three major UK retailers – Marks & Spencer, Tesco and Sainsbury’s – and food packaging manufacturer Faerch Plast to put recycled black plastic into new food grade packaging a project welcomed by Environment Secretary Michael Gove. The result is a circular economy solution to a previously challenging material which will initially see 120 tonnes of black plastic (eight million items) recycled each month starting in July. The project team, working together since January, has proven that black plastic from household mixed recycling can be recycled into high quality mixed coloured ‘jazz’ flakes to create food grade packaging (Nieuwsbericht Viridor, 24 juni 2018).
