PureCycle partners with nestle milken to accelerate revolutionary PP plastic recycling

- Mar 16, 2019-

On March 13, Pure Cycle Technologies announced a partnership with Milliken, a global industrial manufacturer, and nestle, a global food and beverage company, with plans to open * factories that use revolutionary recycling methods to restore used polypropylene (PP) plastics to "the same quality as the original".

Pure Cycle USES a patented process developed and licensed by procter & gamble to separate waste materials into colors, smells and other contaminants and convert them into unused grade resins.

The additives of mericin play a key role in restoring the regeneration of polypropylene.The company formed a supply relationship with Pure Cycle 1 to help address the challenge of the end of plastic life.

Nestle is working with Pure Cycle to develop new packaging materials to help avoid plastic waste, in line with the company's commitment to make * packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025.

"As we bring this solution to market, these partners will help us accelerate plastic recycling."Pure Cycle Technologies* CEO Mike Otworth said, "this is a validation of our approach and will help us continue to move faster as we make plastic recycling a reality."

With consumer market knowledge and technical expertise, merrick and nestle help Pure Cycle commit to providing * the world's first quality of recycled polypropylene.

"The use of mellicon additives will help ensure that PureCycle's ultra-pure recycled polypropylene (UPRP) is of high quality and adds value to brand owners and consumers.""" we believe this partnership will further enable Pure Cycle * to become a manufacturer of polypropylene recycling and recycling." "Otworth continued.

Improve the recovery rate of polypropylene plastics

At present, the recycling rate of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is about 20%.Polypropylene, by contrast, is less than 1% recycled.

PureCycle *, a company focused on upstream polypropylene recycling, reintegrates recycled polypropylene into highly sensitive consumer product applications, including food and beverage packaging, consumer packaging, automotive interiors, electronics, household goods and many other products.

Using technology licensed by p&g, Pure Cycle is building * plants in Lawrence county, Ohio, that will recycle 119 million pounds of UPRP and produce more than 105 million pounds annually from 2021.The partnership allows PureCycle to start the plant's raw material evaluation unit, which processes a variety of raw materials, such as waste polypropylene, to optimize * and subsequent plants.

Pure Cycle will provide a wide range of high quality recycled PP for all walks of life.The technology reflects p&g's commitment to sustainability and contributes to its recycling goals of doubling the use of recycled resins in plastic packaging and ensuring that 90 per cent of product packaging is recyclable or planned to create recycling capacity.The technology supports p&g's vision of * using recyclable or renewable materials.

"Our innovative approach includes not only products and packaging, but also technologies that allow us and others to make a positive impact on our environment."The technology has the ability to revolutionize the plastics recycling industry, enabling p&g and companies around the world to tap into the sources of recycled plastics and deliver nearly identical properties to the original material in a wide range of applications.KathyFish, a research fellow in development and innovation at procter & gamble.

The global polypropylene Market is worth more than $80 billion and is expected to reach $133.3 billion by 2023, according to Transparency Market research.The plastics recycling association (APR) has identified one billion pounds of demand for recycled polypropylene in North America alone.APR says most of the demand is for "" high-quality" "recycled polypropylene.
