AUSIPACK AND PCR MATERIAL

What Are PCR Plastics and How Are They Used?

 

Post-consumer resin (PCR) is an environmentally friendly packaging option that many manufacturers are using in support of recycling programs.

 

PCR plastics are the recycled materials from existing PET bottles and other plastics. These materials are recycled into other packaging materials through community recycling programs.

 

Simply put, recycled plastic is less wasteful than new plastic. That’s because new plastic mostly comes from non-renewable fossil fuels like petroleum, which are hard on the environment.

 

By contrast, recycled plastics require no “virgin” petroleum to be sourced and divert recycled materials from ending up in a landfill, so they alleviate much of the environmental burden.

 

That is why we’re constantly looking to increase our use of PCR plastic and innovating in other ways to create less-wasteful packaging.

 

How Can Your Business Harness All of the Benefits of PCR?

In order to harness the benefits of integrating post-consumer resin into your packaging line, you must first find a manufacturer that offers PCR and is able to accommodate your packaging needs.

Processing and manufacturing of post-consumer resin require specialized equipment and knowledge to truly harness its potential, and AusiPack is fully equipped to customise your next recycled packaging design project.

We use only the most reliable, high-quality sources of raw PCR materials to craft the end products:

•  Plastic Pumps

•  PET Bottles

•  Plastic caps and jar

We believe that by using high-grade PCR, we are enabling our clients to become more sustainable in their business model and help them maintain a hold on the growing market of environmentally conscious consumers.

Working towards a cleaner Australia

The 2025 National Packaging Targets (the 2025 Targets) are supported by Australian industry and government to deliver a new and sustainable approach to packaging. They apply to all packaging that is made, used and sold in Australia.

 

The 2025 Targets are:

  • 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging.

  • 70% of plastic packaging being recycled or composted.

  • 50% of average recycled content included in packaging (revised from 30% in 2020).

  • The phase out of problematic and unnecessary single-use plastics packaging.

 

The 2025 Targets are supported by the Federal and all Australian State and Territory Governments. and were included in the 2019 National Waste Policy Action Plan and the 2021 National Plastics Plan.

 

Although 2025 is still a while off, AusiPack along with M&D Plastics are continuing to make improvements with sustainable packaging providing ecofriendly bio-based solutions for our closures and offer all plastic trigger sprays, mist sprays and lotion pumps (no metal).
