Hundreds of million tons of materials. These are the figures necessary to quantify the food packaging wastes produced in Europe, which represent over 60% of the total packaging wastes.
The food industry cannot subctract to the necessity of reducing the environmental impact linked to the packaging without compromising the quality and safety of the products. Recycling is one of the most advantageous solutions form the environmental point of view, allowing to greatly reduce the quantity of wastes to dispose of and reduce the dependence on non-renewable sources.
The Fabio Mataluni & C. srl, Italian enterprise involved in the production of packaging for edible oils, has taken up the challenge of investing in eco-innovation, with the firm belief that increasing the sustainability of the production is not only necessary, but also convenient.
With the financial contribution of the European Union within the CIP Eco-innovation programme, the Fabio Mataluni & C. gave start to the project RE-PACK EDOILS (Use of 100% Post-Consumer Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate to produce packaging for edible oils), with the aim of introducing on the market bottles for edible oils made up of 100% recycled plastic.
