BP has announced the launch of enhanced recycling technology that enables currently unrecyclable PET plastic to be transformed.

The petroleum giant said BP Infinia enables currently unrecyclable polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic waste to be diverted from landfill or incineration and transformed back into new, virgin-quality feedstocks.

BP Infinia technology is designed to turn difficult-to-recycle PET plastic waste – such as black food trays and coloured bottles – into recycled feedstocks that are interchangeable with those made from traditional hydrocarbon sources.

These recycled feedstocks can then be used to make new PET packaging that may be recycled again and again.
