Placon is one of the few companies to reclaim post-consumer thermoforms destined for landfills, processing them into flake, and extruding them into recycled PET roll stock. Because we are using a high percentage of post consumer recycled PET in our rollstock, we’re helping to preserve our natural resources while reducing our total carbon footprint.
At Placon, we’re committed to continuously understanding the impact our products and business operations have on the environment, which is why we opened the doors to our own, state-of-the-art PET soda bottle and thermoform recycling facility in 2011. Dedicated to the recycling and reuse of plastic, Placon’s EcoStar® line of extruded post-consumer recycled PET rollstock is currently found in some of the world’s top brand owners’ packaging.
Our engineers are continuously working to increase the percentage of recycled content in our plastic food, retail and non-sterile medical device packaging, while maintaining the high quality, high performance and aesthetics you expect from Placon products.
