The Technical Committee of the Tray Circularity Evaluation Platform (TCEP) of PETCORE Europe has officially endorsed the use of Akestra 100 and Akestra 110, products manufactured by Perstorp, for the production of heat-resistant PET trays. Furthermore, the committee has recognized that the use of Akestra 100 and Akestra 110 do not have a negative impact on current European PET recycling streams.


The TCEP is a voluntary European industry initiative that provides PET thermoforms design guidelines for recycling, evaluates thermoform packaging solutions and technologies, and facilitates understanding of the effects of new PET thermoforms innovations on the recycling process. The TCEP initiative fully supports the economic and environmental sustainability of the European PET value chain.


Circular packaging based on Perstorp's Akestra 100 and Akestra 110 announced as an endorsed solutions in Europe by the TCEP.

Akestra 100 and Akestra 110 are high-performance products that enable customers to enhance recycled PET by adding heat resistance capabilities and also achieve sustainability targets by increasing recycled material content and enabling design for circularity.


With this endorsement, Akestra 100 and Akestra 110 are established to enable a circular packaging solutions with high post-consumer content (high PCR), and for being recyclable in existing recycling streams for tray-to-tray. They are hereby confirmed in Europe as replacement of fossil based, linear traditional packaging made of polystyrene or polypropylene.


"We are thrilled to receive this endorsement from PETCORE Europe. To help our food value chain partners to design improved circularity in food packaging has been a missing piece in the puzzle. Akestra 100 and Akestra 110 can help to close the material loop in hot-fill applications to enable circular packaging solutions and a massive saving of fossil raw material and CO2 emissions over time,” said Patrice Pinsard, EVP Strategic Markets & Innovation at Perstorp.
