PTI Offers New App for PET Packaging

Plastic Technologies Inc. (PTI) has launched a new free iPhone and Android app to help users calculate the recyclability of their polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles, containers, and/or packages, allowing users to determine how compatible a specific package is with today’s recycling systems and its impact on recycled PET (rPET) production.

The PET Packaging Recycling Calculator app allows users to see how the decisions they make concerning materials, barrier, additives, closures, labels, etc., can potentially impact the next generation of PET (rPET) that is produced from these recycled containers. The free download is available in the iTunes App Store or Google Play by searching for “Recycle Calc” and looking for an icon with the familiar PETE resin identification logo.
