Recent Developments:


November 2021- Berry Global announced the signing of an agreement with PureCycle, which will offer Berry ultra-pure recycled (UPR) polypropylene resin by PureCycle. The agreement is one of the latest announcements on the list by Berry for the advancement of its recycling material sourcing.
Berry focuses on having access to over 600 million lbs of recycled plastic material every year 2025. Furthermore, the company states that it understands the particular design needs by brand’s products.

December 2021- KW Plastics began a polypropylene wash line in the last month, which will boost its operating capacity by 100 million pounds every year. Scott Saunders, the Company General Manager, stated that the product line would enhance efficiency.
KW, based in Troy, Ala deployed its last wash line in 2013, and the firm has since been operating both PP tubs and lids and also HDPE bulky rigid on that line. That implied that the firm had to separate time on the line based on the resin it was working.
The company has boosted the volume of PP lids and tubs it works significantly since the 2013 line launched, and more lately, there has been substantial growth in the bulky rigid HDPE.

In 2017, P&G announced the PureCycle technology, which will produce over 100 million pounds of polypropylene in a year also make better-recycled propylene for food packaging applications.
