RPET & RHDPE
Global leaders in rPET and rHDPE production and packaging sustainability
Visy is a recognised global leader in rPET and rHDPE production and packaging sustainability. Our materials comply with the world’s strictest food safety standards - EFSA and US FDA.
rPET is recycled PET material (polyethylene terephthalate) sourced from post-consumer waste plastic drink bottles, and rHDPE is recycling HDPE material (high density polyethylene) sourced from post-consumer recycled milk jugs and household cleaner bottles. PET is the most recycled plastic in the world, and HDPE is the second-most recycled plastic in the world.
Visy’s rPET and rHDPE resin has been approved by leading global brand owners who have many years experience of using rPET and rHDPE.
Australian retailers are now leading the way in the inclusion of recycled PET (rPET) and recycled HDPE (rHDPE) in their product packaging thanks to Visy’s investment in Australia’s first state-of-the-art $40m rPlastics facility in Smithfield NSW (2012).
rPET is light, strong, shatterproof, resistant to micro-organisms and is generally used for transparent applications (carbonated and non-carbonated bottles, etc).
rHDPE is also light, durable, impact resistant, has low moisture absorption and is a preferred material in many non-clear packaging and highly durable products such as pipes, fittings, crates, trays, etc.
Visy’s success with both rPET and rHDPE products has been supported by consumer demand and a range of environmental groups and government bodies.
