Repsol’s approach is to manufacture polymer composites with a maximum % of recycled content that does not undermine the functionality of the virgin raw material in the final application. Repsol will also make a proposal to incorporate recycled plastics in the formulation of our multilayer 25 kg industrial bags for pellets, contributing to directly create a larger demand of recycled plastics.
The EUMEPS Pledge sets out the commitment of the Expanded Polystyrene value chain to accelerate the current recycling programme and establishes ambitious recycling targets for 2025 in the main applications.
The pledge is made jointly by TCCC’s bottlers Coca-Cola EU Partners & Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company for an average 45% rPET by 2025, equating to more than 160000mt.

Bottlers are free to apply the committed amount at any time, in any bottle, and in any market, as long as they reach the pledged volume annually
EFBW members pledged publicly on 15 May 2018 to include at least 25% of recycled PET into the production of new bottles by 2025, as an EU average. In addition, they pledged specific PET tonnage towards the goal of 10 million tons. The industry will only use recycled content of high-quality food grade rPET proven to induce no safety and quality risks.
The subject of Kaufland’s pledge is the recycled content in our own brand beverage packaging produced at our production company Mitteldeutsche Erfrischungsgetränke GmbH & Co. KG (MEG).

We continuously work to increase the recycled content rate in our PET bottles.
We pledge to support the EU Plastics Strategy and - Work with industry partners to ensure that by 2030 recycling solutions are in place for all components of beverage cartons so they can be fully recycled across Europe - Substantially increase the use of plastics made from renewables - Use recycled plastics once they are validated as safe and legally acceptable for use as food contact material
SCS is the joint industry initiative to significantly increase the circularity of styrenics by building on PS’ unique intrinsic capacity for circularity. Game-changing technologies such as depolymerisation back to its constituent monomer and dissolution will enable recycled PS to be used over and over again in its original applications, including food contact.
Plastix is a manufacturer of ‘Green Plastics’. Plastix converts used fibres, primarily fishnets, trawls and ropes from the maritime industry that would previously have ended up in the ocean or on landfill, into high-grade and virgin-like Green Plastic raw materials.
