WHAT IS RPET?
It's the most widely recycled plastic in the world. The compound's name is:
Poly (Ethylene Terephthalate)
The acronym is: PET. When it is recycled, an "R" is added and it becomes: RPET.
The "1" symbol identifies items made of RPET. What makes RPET so special? It's lightweight, shatterproof, and economical. It's moldable and extrudable. Most Importantly, it's recyclable!
FROM REFUSE TO RE-USE
About 1.5 billion pounds of bottles and other RPET curbside waste is collected in the U.S. annually. Enough to fill over 5.5 million cubic yards of landfill space. 100% of this curbside waste is recyclable. Today less than 30% is!
The average U.S. household accumulates 50 pounds of RPET waste annually. This is recovered at over 11,000 drop-off and collection points. At Perpetual, we will process up to 160,000,000 pounds of it a year, using today's most advanced automatic processing system.
BEST SYSTEM. BEST RESULTS
Our 100,000 sq. ft. facility features state-of-the-art processing and sorting systems engineered by Sorema and TITECH - world leaders in plastic recycling innovations.
In 20 quality-controlled steps, curbside waste is washed in a proprietary chemical package, decontaminated and separated into purified RPET flakes for manufacturing re-use. They must meet or beat stringent customer-specified requisites for everything from clarity and moisture content to density and viscosity.
We make sure of the quality of our products, so our customers can be sure of theirs. Clients are assured their specifications are met for trouble-free manufacturing and zero-defect finished goods. Whether they use our flake as is, or convert them to pellets. Whether they're used in blow-molding, thermoforming, injection-molding, or extrusion manufacturing.
