SOPRALOOP

Process to recycle PET into polyols

02

SOPRALOOP combines mechanical and chemical recycling at an industrial level to recycle post-consumer complex PET plastic wastes into recycled polyols.

The objective of SOPRALOOP is to deal with currently non-recycled post-consumer PET waste (such as opaque and multilayer PET bottles, full sleeved PET bottles or multilayer PET trays). With this unique industrial solution SOPRALOOP, combining mechanical and chemical recycling, it is possible to recycle all these kinds of complex post-consumer PET waste into recycled polyols and by doing so, reducing the landfilling or incinerating of recyclable products. Therefore, SOPRALOOP is the key solution that allows its users, such as Soprema, to recycle annually 7 000 tons of non recycled complex PET, to produce 10 000 tons of recycled polyols annually, to substitute 50 % of virgin polyols by recycled polyols into the production of polyurethane foams for the insulation market and to save 15 000 tons equivalent CO2 annually.
