Plastipak is meeting the goals set by the company's formal conservation plan.

A Modern Recycling Facility

Clean Tech's recycling processes focus on the effective management of the life cycle of plastic containers. Clean Tech’s highly qualified engineers design unique technologies to maximize plastic’s beneficial features throughout a product's life cycle and its subsequent lives as recycled material.

Clean Tech engineers follow company directives to reduce material use and weight, where feasible, which in turn yields lower energy and transportation costs. High material production standards are always met to ensure that recycled materials can stand up to quality package demands for maintaining product freshness.

Making Good Use of Recycled Materials

Plastipak uses the inherent resilience of plastics as a key resource for developing sensible, environmentally-friendly packaging lines.Plastics are flexible, durable and endlessly recyclable, permitting limitless use and reuse. The recyclable nature of plastics opens the way for Plastipak to construct its manufacturing to help reclaim bottles rather than only creating new plastics.Clean Tech provides the critical component of this system with its capability of recycling HDPE and PET bottles to produce highly useful post consumer materials.

We Reuse Our Own Recycled Materials
Plastipak's commitment to using renewable and recyclable materials along with reduced content is at the heart of its sustainability initiative. The company manufactures an array of containers for both food and non-food products using recycled plastic produced by Clean Tech. For instance, Clean Tech recycled material replaces at least 10% of the plastic content for a line of beverage bottles.
