EcoBlue's EFSA Certification

The EFSA Panel has concluded that the three steps, extrusion, crystallization and SSP, are critical in determining the decontamination efficiency of the process. The Panel has concluded that the recycled PET obtained from this process, which is being followed at EcoBlue, is not of safety concern when used at up to 100% for the manufacture of materials and articles for contact with all types of foodstuffs for longterm storage at room temperature, with or without hotfill.

EcoBlue is Thailand’s first Bottle grade rPET resin producer with a capacity of 15,000 tons per annum, which is on track to be doubled to 30,000 tons per annum.
