Creating circular food-grade recycled polypropylene from post-consumer packaging
Making an Impact Across the Globe
Polypropylene (PP) is the most dominant polymer in the recycling stream. In Europe alone we produce 10 million tons of PP and only 15% of this is being recycled.

Current challenges facing the industry
When it comes to food grade rPP there are processes that meet EFSA and USFDA requirements but do not have EFSA approval. What is key in this area is separation of prior food use materials.
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) requires the infeed material to have previously been used with food. This is due to the fact that up until now, the major barrier to increasing recycled content has been recyclers inability to mechanically differentiate between PP bottles that once contained chemical products from those containing food.
