IDM met José Priante from Sidel

PET, Priante said, is a great resource for packaging. The problem is mismanagement of waste. The corner stone of circular economy is waste collection, especially to avoid leakage on lands, in rivers and oceans.

Priante added that PET is perfectly suitable for a true circular economy of plastics: this is the only plastic packaging material that can be recycled bottle-to-bottle, provided that local regulations allow it, no other polymer offers this advantage. He pointed out China where those who do not feed plastic into recycling are fined. ”I don’t see a threat to PET,” Priante said. ”At Sidel, we are closely working together with our partners along the plastics value chain with the goal of addressing the pollution crisis at its source and keeping plastics within the economy.” ...
