"We are happy to welcome eleven new members to Petcore Europe. The companies are important players in different fields along the PET value chain. With every new member our association and the entire PET industry gets a little bit stronger," outlines Christian Crépet, Executive Director of Petcore Europe.

Petcore Europe had a dynamic start in 2018. After a succesfull conference in February with 200 particpants, the association launched the Plastic Aerosol Recycling SiG in cooperation with the European Aerosol Federation (FEA). With its varied activities on a value-chain level Petcore Europe is therefore the ideal platform for PET manufacturers, converters, recyclers but also label and sleeve manufacturers, brands or retailers.

Petcore Europe membership is open to all interested companies involved in the PET value chain. For more information about the association, its structure and activities, as well as membership please have a look at our website or contact us directly via management@petcore-europe.org.

About Petcore Europe

Petcore Europe is the association representing the complete PET value chain in Europe since 1993.

Its mission is to ensure that the entire PET industry is well aligned to enhance its value and sustainable growth, to represent the PET industry before the European institutions and other stakeholders, to ensure that PET is positioned as an outstanding packaging material and recognised as environmentally sound, to support and validate innovative packaging solutions from a recycling perspective, and to work with all interested parties to ensure a continuous increase of PET post-consumer collection and recycling.

PET (PolyEthylene Terephthalate) is a strong but lightweight form of polyester. It is used to make containers for soft drinks, juices, drinks, water, edible oil, fresh food and dairy as well as household cleaners and other non-food applications. PET bottles and food containers, such as sheets and trays are perfectly recyclable while they help to reduce CO2 emissions and food waste.
