Plastic Technologies Inc. PET recycling calculator app


Plastic Technologies Inc. (PTI) offers a free iPhone and Android app which helps users calculate the recyclability of their polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles, containers and/or packages. The objective is to determine how compatible a specific package is with today’s recycling systems and its impact on recycled PET (rPET) production. The app allows users to see how the material, barrier, additive, closure, labels, etc. decisions they make can potentially impact the next generation of rPET that is produced from these recycled containers. The PET packaging recycling calculator is an ideal tool for brand owners, packaging engineers, plastic processors, resin producers and others involved in the PET process, according to the company.
