Labels and sleeves play a major role in the recycling of PET bottles. They must come off with as little residue as possible and “float on top” in the most important PET recycling step, the so-called sink/float process, while the heavier PET flakes sink to the bottom of the basin.
Clean separation is a must for high-quality recycled PET that can be reused for bottles – thus closing the cycle and working towards a circular economy.
