Cambrian Packaging is a UK manufacturer of rHDPE plastic bottles and we have watched with growing concern the impact single-use plastic packaging is having on our environment. This issue has received a lot of press and Government attention recently and has accelerated public demand for new and more environmentally-friendly packaging options.
Ecycle™ is Cambrian’s packaging option designed to help meet this demand for 100% recycled plastic bottles - it is 100% rHDPE (recycled high density polyethylene). The feedstock for Ecycle™ is plastic packaging waste collected from numerous sources including watercourses and coastlines. This approach helps address the growing problem of plastic packaging polluting our seas and oceans and avoids incineration of waste by using it again.
The composition of the Ecycle™ material is the same as standard HDPE. It has very similar melting point, flow rate and cooling rate characteristics.
