A true “closed loop” thermoformer, Placon recycles and extrudes up to 100% food and non-food grade post-consumer recycled PET rollstock materials from discarded plastic water/soda bottles and thermoformed containers. Our in-house facility produces our EcoStar line of PET materials which feature excellent optical clarity, heat-sealing capabilities and superior performance for Placon’s own custom and stock packaging products as well as for brand owners and other sustainable-minded thermoformers.
Over 1 billion discarded consumer PET soda bottles, water bottles and plastic retail and food containers carrying the #1 symbol go through our recycling facility each year. These containers are ground, washed, then extruded into our EcoStar brand of PET sheet which is thermoformed back into consumer packaging helping conserve valuable natural resources.
