Recycled Polypropylene for food use:

UK-based plastics-design and -recycling consultant, and a 2013 Recycling Innovators Forumfinalist. Nextek has created an innovative process proven to decontaminate food-grade PP for reuse in a closed loop back into food packaging. Is this a game-changer in recyclable food packaging?

 

A study carried out by London recycling consultant Nextek Ltd., is the latest in a series looking at the feasibility of producing recycled post-consumer PP resin approved for food contact, and developing a closed-loop PP household waste stream.

 

The study, conducted by recycling consultant Nextek in collaboration with the plastics industry, looks at how to recycle process and decontaminate post-consumer polypropylene food packaging.

 

 

Recycling breakthrough for black plastics

A consortium comprising Linpac, Nextek, Sharpak and FaerchPlast, working alongside UK waste reduction organization WRAP, has developed black colorants that can be detected using near infrared (NIR) technology. Their use will therefore allow recyclers to separate out black plastic packaging from a mixed plastics waste stream. Until now this has been impossible, resulting in much black plastic being sent to landfill or incineration, the group says

 

Packaging manufacturers have carried out successful large-scale trials of an innovation that helps black packaging to be detected by Near Infrared (NIR) technology in sorting facilities.
