UK-based Berry bpi will break ground on a recycling facility in Leamington next month, which will produce certified FDA post-consumer recycled polypropylene for use in packaging. The new facility will not only recycle used plastics, but it will also wash, sort, and sift them to produce food-grade materials with a target purity standard of 99.9 per cent. CleanStream, Berry’s proprietary process, is a closed-loop system to mechanically process domestically recovered household waste PP back into consumer packaging. The company claims that the facility will pave the way for the future of rPP packaging using automated sorting processes, integrating online sensor technologies and machine learning algorithms to separate PP containers, tubs and trays.
