Fromm Packaging has become the first packaging company in Australia to manufacture and sell plastic PET strap made from recycled plastic bottles. The strapping is manufactured using up to 98% recycled polyester bottle material on state-of-the-art extrusion lines.

The majority of this recycled raw material is produced at Fromm’s plastics recycling plant in Wolfen, Germany, which produces both PET pellets and PET flakes.

According to Fromm Managing Director, Richard Layton: “We use the flakes for our global production and on sell the pellets to other users and applications.

“At Fromm by using recycled resins we are not adding to the total amount of waste plastics in circulation. We use recyclables that are again recyclable.”

With an input capacity of over 50,000t of bottles per year, Fromm is one of Europe’s leading plastics recycling specialists.

“Our new sustainability approach is to reduce, reuse and recycle,” says Layton. “Our goal is to limit the effects our products have on the environment. We actively strive to develop and produce packaging machines and consumables for a better planet.”
