FDA Approved Food-grade RPET resin
VERDECO RECYCLING, Inc. is processing post-consumer PET into high quality, FDA approved food-grade resin utilizing advanced PET-M™ recycling technology developed by PTP Group Ltd in Europe. Instead of using high pressure and vacuums for extended periods of time (which is typically done by PET recycling processes), PET-M™ process uses a Silane-based modifying agent to restore physical and mechanical properties of post-consumer PET. The PET-M™ technology minimizes energy consumption and waste resulting in the smallest carbon footprint among known PET recycling technologies. RPET resin manufactured by PTP Group has gained an excellent reputation on the European market due to its high quality and competitive price. The RPET resin is widely used for food packaging and other PET applications.
The RPET resin manufactured using PET-M™ technology can be used in any and all applications where virgin PET is utilized. Decontamination efficiency of the PET-M™ technology and the food contact safety of our RPET resin have been confirmed by surrogate contamination challenge tests. The material and the process have been cleared by the U.S. FDA for use in food-contact packaging (LNO #148).
PET-M™ technology incorporates the most recent innovations in the field of polymer processing, including use of the most advanced machinery from leading equipment manufacturers: MAS (Austria), Nordson Kreyenborg | Nordson BKG and Universal Dynamics (USA).
