Pasta Garofalo unveils recyclable pack that uses 30% PCR
Publish date: 2023-05-24


The company claims to be the first in the pasta sector to use recycled plastic obtained from chemical recycling, which for this application makes it possible to obtain pyrolysis oil from the decomposition of the polymers that make up traditional plastic packaging waste, converting them into the raw material that can be used to produce new packaging.

It is hoped that, in this way, new recycling possibilities can be opened up for fractions of waste that can often be difficult to recycle such as plastic from the domestic collection. However, Garofalo has also noted that the process is still expensive at the moment – and describes the material it uses as being of “limited availability”.
