MULTI-LAYER PLASTIC RECYCLING
An important step towards resource sustainability.

About us

Plastigram Industries a.s. (PGI) has developed a technology for processing reject from used beverage cartons (for example Tetra Pak, Elopak, SIG Combibloc) after paper recycling.

Used beverage cartons are recycled in paper mills, which only recover the paper component. The remaining polyethylene and aluminum, often referred to as “polyal”, are usually incinerated or landfilled. Our innovative process enables the recovery of plastics as well as aluminum.

Beverage cartons are made of multi-layer composite consisting of paper, polyethylene and aluminium.

Paper is recycled at paper mills and remaining PE and Al composite is often incinerated.

Our technology allows recycling of PE and Al composite with the main final product being LDPE regranulate.

Our technology represents an important step towards resource sustainability. It significantly lowers the volume of landfilled and incinerated waste, reduces energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, and saves raw materials. In addition, it allows paper mills recycling UBC to reduce the cost associated with waste disposal.

Less waste for landfilling and incineration

Less energy consumed

Less raw materials consumed

Less greenhouse gases

Feed in material

We offer to our partners a price-attractive and environment-friendly disposal of the remains of used beverage cartons after paper recycling.
