SK Chemicals to ramp up production of chemically-recycled PET for food containers
SK Chemicals Co. has ramped up its production of chemically-recycled (CR) PET for the food container market, made by chemically decomposing waste plastics to turn them into pure raw materials and then used for production.
CR PET uses a chemical recycling technology that depolymerizes waste PET bottles to revert them to a raw material state.
South Korean chemical company stressed that SKYPET CR is free from pollution by foreign substances while ensuring no deterioration of quality.
SK Chemicals is beginning full-scale operation of the mass production system for the CR PET ‘SKYPET CR’ this month.
SK Chemicals has a business agreement with Jeju Province Development Corp., which manufactures bottled water Samdasoo, to jointly develop chemically recycled PET mineral water bottles.
The company also launched the world’s first commercial production of chemically recycled copolyester.
