In September 2014 a new factory was opened by Frapak and FlexPET with a production system which enables different materials to be automatically fed into its machines(in order to determine 50% or 100% of rPET)
Trial bottles have been made in the new factory on a “worst case” scenario basis i.e. heavy bottle resulting in high migration with 100% rPET. The trial bottles have been send to Intertek to study the migration of dangerous substances – with the result that the migration complies to the new 10/2011 legislation. The minimum order quantity (MOQ) for rPET is 25K.
The EFSA – European Food Safety Authority – is the controlling body which regulates the food safety for the European Union. The EFSA has issued positive evaluations and positive scientific opinions for some PET recycling processes and companies. Working for the food and cosmetics industry it is a must that you select a recycler who is EFSA approved and produces rPET grade products which may be used up to 100% for foodstuff.
