The world is becoming more aware of the importance of using recycled packaging to protect the environment, in line with the principles of a circular economy where post-consumer recycled PET (PCR PET) plastic resins are used in packaging in the food and beverage industry.
Today, PTT Global Chemical Public Company Limited (GC) and ALPLA Group have joined hands with customers and partners to innovate better for the world by creating packaging for food and beverages using 100 percent Post Consumer Recycled PET (PCR PET) plastic resins under the InnoEco brand, in Thailand.
This initiative aims to reduce net greenhouse gas emissions to zero, or “Net Zero.” ENVICCO, a high-quality food-grade recycled plastic resin production plant, produces these recycled plastic pellets that meet international standards. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the Ministry of Public Health has certified the company as the first in Thailand to use recycled plastic for food and beverage packaging due to its unique cleanliness, purity, and contamination-free properties. This is to provide a better quality of life for all the people in Thailand.
