Ineos To Recycle 6.5 billion Bottle Caps Over 5 Years

INEOS has launched world’s first high-quality polymer for caps made with 50% recycled bottle caps diverted from waste.

INEOS Olefins & Polymers  in partnership with Forever Plast SpA, a leading polymer recycling technologies operator in Italy, have developed a range of new Polyethylene grades that mirror INEOS virgin grades and perfectly fit injection moulding and compression moulding machines.

The new Recycl-IN products take Post Consumer Recyclate (PCR) from used bottle caps and carefully blend them with highly engineered virgin polymer to create new high-quality caps.

Over the next five years 6.5 billion bottle caps will be diverted from the waste stream to be recycled.

As part of its ongoing drive to support a more circular economy and significantly increase plastics recycling, INEOS is expanding its range of Recycl-IN polymers into the Polyethylene non-food caps market.
