Fromm Packaging Australia, a member of APPMA, will manufacture and sell plastic strap made almost entirely from recycled PET bottles. The company said it was the first in Australia to manufacture recycled plastic strap, which is made using up to 98% recycled bottle material (rPET) on extrusion lines.
Most of the raw material is produced in Fromm’s plastic-recycling plant in Wolfen, Germany. This plant produces PET pellets flakes.
Richard Layton, managing director at Fromm, said the flakes are used for the company’s global production and the pellets are sold to other users.
