Beverage cartons have been used for decades to keep beverages such as juices and dairy products fresh or shelf-stable. However, because they’re made of different materials laminated together, recycling them is difficult and a circular, or ‘closed loop’ solution seems impossible.
Designing out waste and pollution and keeping materials in use to allow natural systems to regenerate is critical to protecting the planet for future generations. That’s why the circular economy is a focus of new legislation around the world.
ReZorce does the same great job of preserving products as standard beverage cartons, but because it’s considered a single raw material, it’s easy to recycle back into the same type of packaging, rather than downcycle into something else.
ReZorce is designed for regular household recycling and existing waste sorting and reprocessing. It’s a simple message for everyone, everywhere: if you recycle a ReZorce carton, it may well come back as itself again… and again…
In a March 2021 trial conducted at Bord na Móna’s mixed recycling facility in Ireland, printed ReZorce cartons were successfully identified as recyclable plastic and were sorted into the recyclable HDPE fraction.
