Infia is betting everything on the environment with 100% RPET

20 May 2018
After many years of effort and huge investment in machinery and R&D, Infia is proud to announce that the ALL the PET production lines in Italy and Spain will be converted from polyethylene (PET) to 100% recycled (R-PET). This will provide a type of packaging that has the same transparency and resistance as the one obtained from virgin raw material and that, at the same time, guarantees perfect sustainability at every level, dramatically reducing the environmental impact. In fact, R-PET 100% is environmentally sustainable, as it uses only recycled materials; it is also economically sustainable, as the difference of cost compared to the usual virgin raw material is moderate, and finally it is sustainable with respect to food safety, thanks to the certified process of recycling of post-consumer waste materials. With more than 70 years of experience, INFIA is present in almost 80 countries and has been investing for years in converting its production plants, in order to use post-consumer materials in replacement of virgin materials. Today, it is the only company in the field on the world stage, that offers recycled material supply to its customers, according to their needs and without any limit of quantity, thanks to the coverage of all its productive capacity with RPET 100%.
As a matter of fact, INFIA has concluded the authorization process of its “Supercleaning Process” with the EFSA (European Food Safety Authority). Therefore, INFIA can operate with its authorized internal recycle process in order to guarantee finished products obtained 100% from recycled, safe and sustainable material, with benefits in terms of energy, use of the resources and gas emissions.
