With our solutions.
Helping our customers reach their sustainability goals is a top priority for Husky, no matter which plastics they use in their operations. With today’s circular economy driving package design, we work closely with customers to ensure that their packaging and other end products meet specific regional design requirements, particularly with regard to recycling and recycled content in the packaging itself.
PET (polyethylene terephthalate) is one of the most environmentally friendly materials to help solve the problem of plastics pollution now and in the future. It is inert, medical-grade, infinitely recyclable and product-reusable. Our injection molding systems support PET’s important role in the global circular economy. The PET end products our machines make can be recycled back into new PET bottles and packaging to close the loop. PET can also be recycled into fiber for consumer products such as clothing and carpeting, shoes, automotive materials, upholstery, and much more. PET—Infinite Possibilities.
What’s more, we’ve developed innovative tethered closure designs that satisfy new legislation around recyclability. And we’re at the forefront of rPET advances, with systems that connect directly to third party melt providers to turn washed rPET Flake into preforms. So customers in the food, beverage and consumer markets can meet their recycled content targets, anywhere from 0–100% rPET. Husky machines are helping some customers to reshape a recycled PET bottle and have it back in a consumer’s hand in as little as five days. Sustainability is truly in our Husky DNA, locally, regionally and globally.
