Mauser Packaging Solutions develops IBC manufactured with PCR Resin
publié le lundi 28 mars 2022
Mauser Packaging Solutions announced that it has received UN-certification for its Infinity Series IBC, a composite IBC with an inner receptacle made from high-quality, natural colored post-consumer resin (PCR) generated in-house called Recolene®. Mauser Packaging Solutions paved the way for the use of PCR in the industrial packaging industry with the introduction of one of the first UN-certified, monolayer, plastic drums made from 100% recycled resin more than 7 years ago.
Today, the company continues to set the standard and expand its line of monolayer and multilayer drums and IBCs that support the circular economy and conserve natural resources. Through close collaboration with authorities, the International Confederation of Plastics Packaging Manufacturers (ICPP), and the International Confederation of Container Reconditioners (ICCR), Mauser Packaging Solutions helped successfully lobby the UN-Subcommittee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods to update UN Model Regulations to allow the use of PCR materials to produce the bottle of Composite IBCs.
The Infinity Series IBC demonstrates the advantages of Mauser Packaging Solutions closed-loop recycling system and the benefits of cascading reuse and recycling concepts to an industrial packaging product. It offers the same benefits of reusability and recyclability as a standard Composite IBC and is ideal for use in the chemical, paints and coatings, building products, petrochemical, and lubricant industries. The UN-certified Infinity IBC is currently available in Central Europe only.
