UNITED CAPS and LyondellBasell set to unveil innovative tethered closures
Date 10.16.2019 | Category: News
UNITED CAPS, an international manufacturer of caps and closures, and LyondellBasell, one of the world’s largest plastics, chemicals and refining companies, today announced that they will be displaying the results of an extensive collaborative effort to respond to EU Directive 2019/904 on single-use plastics that requires beverage bottles to have closures tethered to the bottle for proper disposal, reducing the risk of plastic items dispersing into the environment.
Following the publication in May of 2018 by the EU Commission of a proposal for requiring tethered closures for single use plastics (SUP), UNITED CAPS spearheaded the Alliance for Closure Tethering (ACT) to bring together segment leaders in the packaging industry to conduct an impact assessment of various tethering solutions on existing neck finishes and to determine finishing changes that might be required.
