Sustainable Packaging We believe plastics can be part of a sustainable future
So we are driving change improving how plastics are made, used, and recycled.
At Captiva, we are committed to implementing sustainable practices to improve our processes and manufacturing methods. One of our key policies is to minimize scrap in our production process while ensuring the efficient recycling of any resulting waste. We optimize our manufacturing by implementing consistent and validated processes for all jobs, which enables us to predict and properly reuse and recycle any waste generated during production.
We firmly believe that a robust manufacturing process is key to minimizing waste in production and promoting an efficient and sustainable manufacturing system. In addition to improving our manufacturing process, we also offer two sustainable packaging solutions to help address the plastic challenge. Our Eco Clear solution enhances biodegradation and serves as a responsible end-of-life solution, while our rPET solution promotes a circular economy of plastic, harnessing the infinite recyclability possibilities of PET.
We recognize that the journey towards a sustainable future is a collective effort, and we are dedicated to playing our part in making it a reality.
Plastics Have Been In The News A Lot Lately.
But Not All Plastics Are The Same.
PET (polyethylene terephthalate) bottles and containers are renowned for their safety, durability, and versatility. These lightweight, resealable, and shatter-resistant containers are highly sought after, and many PET bottles and containers are fully recyclable.
In fact, Americans collect over 1.6 billion pounds of PET every year, making it the most widely recovered plastic in the world. The popularity of PET bottles and containers underscores their superior performance and highlights the growing demand for sustainable and eco-friendly packaging solutions.
Eco Clear Additive
PET is infinitely recyclable and can be transformed into thousands of useful products
Despite the widespread push for a circular economy, the unfortunate reality is that over 90% of plastic waste in the US still ends up in modern landfills. At Captiva, we are committed to offering the most responsible solution to this critical issue: our Eco Clear Additive.
Our Eco Clear Additive has undergone rigorous testing in accordance with ASTM standards to ensure biodegradability in landfill environments. In fact, this innovative solution has been shown to decompose PET plastic thirty times faster than the same material without the additive. It seamlessly integrates with today's disposal infrastructure, converting into methane gas that can be harvested in landfills for clean energy production.
We recognize the importance of responsible waste management and strive to make a positive impact on the environment through our sustainable practices and innovative solutions. With our Eco Clear Additive, we offer a net positive solution to the critical issue of plastic waste management.
We can help make this a reality giving recycled PET an added value without compromising recyclability.
By incorporating rPET into your product mix, you can reduce your carbon footprint, decrease fossil fuel consumption, and contribute to the advancement of a circular economy, where all plastic is collected, reprocessed, and reused. The circular economy is the ultimate vision for long-term sustainability, and with rPET, we can help make this a reality while preserving recyclability and adding value to recycled PET.
At the cutting edge of plastic ecological responsibility, rPET enables you to improve the sustainability of your products and demonstrate a commitment to environmental stewardship. Did you know that every 10 million bottles produced with 50% rPET content can potentially reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 230 tons of CO2? This is equivalent to the amount sequestered by 270 acres of US forests in a year.
We believe that responsible business practices are essential for protecting the environment and promoting sustainable growth. By incorporating rPET into your product mix, you can help reduce environmental impact and support the transition to a more sustainable future.
