Resilux produces preforms made of PET (polyethylene terephthalate).
PET is quite easy to recycle. PET is mainly reused as a fibre in clothing and synthetic fabrics, foils and packaging, and to an increasing extent in the production of PET bottles. Resilux has mastered the technique of 'bottle-to-bottle' recycling, which means that a new bottle can be produced out of a used one.
PET is the most environmentally-friendly product of all packaging on the market for one-way packaging. Scientific studies have shown that PET packaging is more environmentally friendly than glass, for example. The envir onmental costs of the production process, transport, cleaning, etc, all have to be taken into account, and they make the environmental assessment of PET very favourable.
In addition to user-friendliness, PET packaging also guarantees optimum food safety, allowing less food to be wasted on a yearly basis.
In addition, within the Resilux group, considerable emphasis is placed on energy-saving processes and procedures. The strategy consists of continual technological innovation, so that Resilux can respond to changing customer requirements and environmental legislation.
