100% RPET: SAFE & SUSTAINABLE

Upholding its philosophy, Infia has concluded an authorisation process for its "Supercleaning Process" with the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). The approval enables the company to use its RECYC077 registered recycling process, ensuring that its material is 100% recycled, safe and sustainable.

 

IT IS SAFE BECAUSE

  • it has been approved and meets EFSA guidelines (Scientific Opinion EFSA Journal 2011; 9 (7):2184. (1)
  • it is produced and controlled internally with advanced systems and technologies.
  • it is accredited by Infia's thirty years of experience working with PET.

 

IT IS SUSTAINABLE BECAUSE:

  • Recycling prevents plastics from ending up in dumps or the incinerator when they reach the end of their life-cycle; it brings benefits in terms of reduced greenhouse gas emissions and use of raw materials (2).
  • According to the European Commission guidelines concerning waste management, recycling is third on the list of community objectives for proper management of post-consumer packaging, right after reducing and reusing waste. This shows the general approach to take for minimising the quantity produced and maximising recycling of materials and energy so as to obtain the best overall result for the environment (3).
  • It replaces virgin plastics preventing environmental impacts tied to extraction and refining (4).
