The use of ISCC PLUS-certified recycled polystyrene from AmSty, based on a mass-balance approach, will be applied to select Pactiv Evergreen packaging products. This certification process audits the supply chain from end-to-end, ensuring that consumers can be confident in purchasing products linked to ISCC PLUS-certified recycled content.

“Pactiv Evergreen produces thousands of products in more than a dozen materials that protect, package and display fresh food and beverages,” said Eric Wulf, president of Pactiv Evergreen’s food merchandising business unit. “Our broad material expertise enables us to support our customers quickly and effectively as they seek more sustainable products. Our collaboration with AmSty expands our portfolio of circular packaging, and we’re pleased to offer this solution to our customers.”

“We are excited to collaborate with Pactiv Evergreen in this groundbreaking effort. With our post-consumer polystyrene recycling process now certified by ISCC, we can introduce and scale up polystyrene circularity in a meaningful way,” said Tim Barnette, vice president of polymers and sustainability for AmSty. “As brands look toward more sustainable food merchandising and packaging options, polystyrene foam makes sense. Its lightweight and performance qualities make it a desirable material. Now, with the addition of circular content through advanced recycling, it makes even more sense.”

Pactiv Evergreen will begin offering customers the ability to purchase the new packaging in the first half of 2023.
