Lighter food trays produced using less crude oil
rPET-FOAM: Light weight, foamed recycled Polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) food trays
The food industry makes extensive use of food trays, from fruit and vegetable packaging to ready meals. Current food trays are made of virgin polypropylene which, when no longer useful, finds its way into landfill or incineration. rPET-FOAM has piloted an alternative to the current trays on offer which is lighter, uses less crude oil and can be reused an indefinite number of times. The project now intends to go into greater production.
