For PET recycling and converting, EVERCYCLE™ products offer process stability, color control, and reduced acetaldehyde levels. For polyolefin recycling, benefits include process stabilization and performance enhancement, enabling increased recycled content. Products announced today include:
- EVERCYCLE™ PET-102D for color control in PET bottles, trays, and fibers (pellet)
- EVERCYCLE™ PET-103D for color control in PET bottles, trays, and fibers (liquid)
- EVERCYCLE™ PP-101S for stabilization in HDPE and PP flexible packaging

SI Group actively takes part in the plastic industry's drive to improve recycling technologies. Consumer brands are looking to increase the amount of recycled content and enable multiple uses of their products to increase the sustainability of their products. EVERCYCLE™ products are designed to help address both challenges. “Our formulated additive solutions advance the transition to a more circular economy by enabling more plastics to be recycled back into the economy. This will result in a more sustainable industry and create greater societal and economic benefit for all,” said Irfaan Foster, Market Development Director at SI Group.
The EVERCYCLE™ additive platform is the latest milestone in SI Group’s sustainability journey. “We continue to invest in innovation, driving forward our capabilities and expertise, to bring more sustainable solutions like EVERCYCLE™ additives to the market.
