American packaging company Pactiv Evergreen is collaborating with ExxonMobil, a provider of advanced recycling technology, to provide certified circular packaging solutions for the foodservice industry.
As part of this partnership, Pactiv will leverage ExxonMobil’s advanced recycling technology, called Exxtend, to develop and provide certified circular polypropylene (PP) packaging products for various food brands and foodservice providers.
Pactiv said that Exxtend helps widen the range of plastic materials that are suitable for recycling and can offer the same quality and performance as virgin plastics.
The technology is used to break down plastic waste into its molecular building blocks.
These building blocks, using a mass balance approach, can then be transformed into valuable new materials such as PP.
This provided packaging from ExxonMobil is certified circular in accordance with International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) Plus standards.
