Phoenix Technologies: Modular rPET system enables self-manufacture

Phoenix Technologies’ rPET small-capacity version of its proprietary compact, modular equipment is designed for brand owners who self-manufacture PET containers and who want to support a positive environmental profile.
The small-capacity system (4 million pounds of rPET annually) has a 1,000 sq. ft. footprint and can be built in 160 days.  Based on the company’s patented technology for the commercial production of food grade LNO™ rPET.  The resin has received letters of no objection at up to 100% use from both the Food & Drug Administration and Canada Health. The unit uses virtually no water and only 2.3 million kilowatts hours (kwh) of electricity annually.
