Impact On Environment:

At  Strong  Packages,  sustainability  has  always  been  a  key  driving  force  in  the  innovation  and  development  of  their  technology.

Strong  Packages  PET  strap  is  made  from  100  per  cent  recycled  material  from  used  plastic  bottles.  After  processing,  the  recyclable  raw  material  becomes  a  brand-new  premium  product.  Depending  on  the  width,  the  mostly  green-coloured  PET  strap  is  extremely  strong  and  reliable  and  withstands  loads  between  120  and  900kg.

Any  waste  material  generated  during  the  production  process  is  re-used  via  a  shredding  system.

Global Safety Approval

PET is approved as safe for contact with foods and beverages by the FDA and health-safety agencies throughout the world. The safety of PET for food, beverage, pharmaceutical and medical applications has been repeatedly demonstrated through extensive studies, regulatory approvals, testing, and its widespread acceptance for more than 30 years. PET does not contain bisphenol-A (BPA) or phthalates (plasticizers).

 

Because of PET’s unique properties, it is rapidly becoming the world’s preferred packaging material for foods and beverages. Like glass, it is a very strong and inert material that does not react with foods, is resistant to attack by micro-organisms, and will not biologically degrade. But unlike glass, PET is extremely lightweight, easy and efficient to transport, and shatterproof.

Fully Recyclable

PET is completely recyclable, and is the most recycled plastic in the U.S and worldwide. More than 1.5 billion pounds of used PET bottles and containers are recovered in the United States each year for recycling. PET can easily be identified by the #1 in the triangular “chasing arrows” code, which is usually found molded into the bottom or side of the container. No other plastic carries the #1 code.

PET can be commercially recycled by thorough washing and re-melting, or by chemically breaking it down to its component materials to make new PET resin. Almost every municipal recycling program in North America and Europe accepts PET containers.

Products commonly made from recycled PET include new PET bottles and jars, carpet, clothing, industrial strapping, rope, automotive parts, fiberfill for winter jackets and sleeping bags, construction materials, and protective packaging.

The current U.S. recycling rate for PET is 31%. This figure continues to grow, but notably lags behind Europe, which has a PET recycling rate of 52%.

Although recycling is the most environmentally responsible and efficient re-use of resources, PET bottles and containers that find their way to the landfill pose no risk of harm or leaching. Since the polymer is inert, it is resistant to attack by micro-organisms, and won’t biologically degrade. PET also takes up relatively little landfill space since it is easily crushed flat. According to the EPA, only 1% of U.S. municipal solid waste is due to PET containers.

Sustainable

PET is a very energy-efficient packaging material. Although its raw materials are derived from crude oil and natural gas, it enjoys a very favorable sustainability profile in comparison to glass, aluminum and other container materials.

Its sustainability jumps even higher when recycling is introduced, since approximately 40% of PET’s energy use is attributable to its “resource energy” the energy inherently trapped in its raw materials that can be recaptured and reused through recycling.

The high strength of PET in comparison to its light weight is a major key to its energy efficiency, allowing for more product to be delivered in less packaging and using less fuel for transport. Ongoing advances in light-weighting technology continue to improve its energy efficiency even further. Life cycle studies of PET have consistently confirmed the environmental benefits of PET as a packaging material.

In the 60 years since PET was first synthesized, it has become one of the world’s most widely used, versatile and trusted materials.

Our Objectives:

Decreasing Carbon Footprint

Decarbonization of manufacturing process has become one of the most pressing issue of 21st Century. Strong Packages is determined to decrease its carbon footprint. One of it approach is to go for “Eco-Design Engineering”. We have been successful in minimizing the environmental impact of our product across its entire lifecycle. We are planning to have solar installations as our primary energy source which will be a major breakthrough in decreasing our carbon footprint.

Increasing capacity to become part of cyclic economy

Strong Packages is determined to increase its role in circular economy. We have a systematic approach designed towards economic development which benefits other businesses, society and environment.

Providing the highest quality products

Strong Packages has been successfully manufacturing highest quality Pet Strap since 2012. Our Pet Strap meets all the international standards and our manufacturing is done using state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment. We have a specific budget allocated for Research and Development. It is solely motivated by our aim to provide the highest quality product to Pet Strap consumers around the globe.

Our Complete Closed Loop Recycling Process:

The above illustration explains how our strap goes through various steps and then recycled again for further use. We consume a total of 150 tons of raw material every month. Our 80% of the raw material consumption consists of PET Bottle Flakes and 20% comes from our own used PET Strap. Our aim is to use already consumed PET Strap as our only source of raw material in the coming future.
