Post-consumer Plastic

PCR

(Post-consumer recycled)

The raw material used for this product is recycled from single-use packaging, with the primary component being bottles. By utilizing post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials, the amount of virgin plastic waste and landfill plastic waste can be reduced, making it an effective solution for promoting sustainability for any brand.

How PCR material produced?

The process of producing PCR typically starts with the collection and sorting of discarded plastics from commercial and residential recycling programs. The collected items are then ground, washed, dried, and pelletized.

To ensure high-quality PCR material, only recyclable plastics can be collected, as the recycling process degrades non-recyclable plastics beyond reuse. Currently, the most frequently used PCR materials include PP, PE, and PET.

Is there quality risk for PCR material?

Our PCR material has passed the same strict quality tests as virgin plastic at professional third-party testing institutes (e.g. TUV, SGS), and we perform complete function tests for each project to mitigate any risk of malfunction. Certificates and test reports, including MSDS, are available upon request.

Which packaging categories can PCR material be used for? 

PCR material can be used to make beauty packaging, just like virgin plastic. With our self-owned stock components, you can find all categories of PCR packaging in one place at Fomalhaut, including closures, tubes, jars, bottles, airless containers, dispensers, deodorant containers, and more.

What is the maximum proportion of PCR that can be added to packaging?

The process of producing PCR typically starts with the collection and sorting of discarded plastics from commercial and residential recycling programs. The collected items are then ground, washed, dried, and pelletized.

To ensure high-quality PCR material, only recyclable plastics can be collected, as the recycling process degrades non-recyclable plastics beyond reuse. Currently, the most frequently used PCR materials include PP, PE, and PET.

What benefits can I gain from using PCR material?

PCR material is currently one of the most widely recognized sustainability standards. A well-executed sustainability story can generate positive press, boost sales, and enhance brand loyalty.

Utilizing PCR material allows brands to easily develop reliable, sustainable products for consumers.
