Drinks main Coca-Cola, on Wednesday, mentioned it has launched 100 per cent recycled PET bottles for its carbonated beverage supporting the round financial system.
The corporate has launched recycled rPET (polyethylene terephthalate) bottles in pack sizes of 250 ml and 750 ml throughout a number of markets in India, mentioned a press release from Coca-Cola India.
These rPET bottles are being manufactured by Coca-Cola bottling companions – Moon Drinks and SLMG Drinks Ltd, it added.
“The bottles comprised of 100 per cent food-grade rPET (excluding caps and labels) have an on-pack name to motion “Recycle Me Once more” message and also will drive client consciousness with “100% recycled PET bottle” displayed on the pack,” it mentioned.
These PET bottles are crafted from food-grade recycled polyethylene terephthalate. The plastic is recycled as per the applied sciences permitted by the USFDA and European Meals Security Authority (EFSA) for food-grade recycled materials and repurposed into new PET bottles, lowering the necessity for virgin plastic for producing PET bottles.
The Coca-Cola Firm now presents 100 per cent rPET bottles in over 40 markets. It had first launched 100 per cent recycled PET bottles in India for its packaged consuming water model Kinley.
