What is Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) Plastic?

New Type of Plastic Pellet
PCR is a new type of plastic pellet that is typically made from recycled plastic (derived from post-consumer materials from the household, commercial, industrial and other sectors) that has been sorted, cleaned and pelletized by recycling systems.These plastic pellets have the same structure as the plastic before recycling. When the new plastic pellets are mixed with virgin plastic, a variety of new plastic products (including packaging) can be produced.
Eco-Friendly
In the manufacture of PCR plastics, waste is converted into raw materials, making it a very environmentally friendly solution.
Material
PCR can be a recycled material of PET, PE, PP, HDPE, etc.
