CEDAR SPRINGS–The plastic packaging manufacturer Display Pack announced the addition of a Starlinger deCON IV+ unit to improve its recycling capabilities.
The unit, one of only four in the United States, will go online by March 31. It takes plastics through a decontamination drying process resulting in high intrinsic viscosity, 100% food grade material. This highly versatile unit can process post-consumer PET flake, in-house regrind scrap and pelletized material.
This technology allows Display Pack to manufacture polyethylene terephthalate products with up to 100% recycled content using post-industrial and post-consumer resources while ensuring high-quality sheet extrusion. PET is the most common thermoplastic polymer resin of the polyester family and is used in fibres for clothing, containers for liquids and foods, and thermoforming for manufacturing.
“In addition to diverting plastics from the landfill, we can provide solutions to our customers that address their sustainability, quality, and price requirements,” said Andy Blackmore, president and CEO of Display Pack.
