Cleaning the rPET Stream

Closed Loop Fund commissioned a study to identify recycling system interventions that reduce the cost of processing post-consumer PET, compared to producing virgin resin.  Focusing on US infrastructure for sorting and processing recycled PET (rPET) for bottle and container end-use, the study shows how interventions would impact main cost drivers, such as high levels of contamination and yield loss commonly found in curbside PET bales.
