Roboplast approved by EFSA

Official approval by EFSA of our recycled-PET material

We are extremely proud to announce the official approval by EFSA – European Food Safety Authority of our recycled-PET material, treated with the PURe 15 decontamination system.

Our recycled material, born and produced in Roboplast’ R&D Department laboratories, is fully compliant with direct food contact according to European (EFSA) and North American (FDA) regulations.
The approval document reads: “The EFSA Panel on Food Contact Materials, Enzymes and Processing Aids (CEP) assessed the safety of the recycling process Roboplast (EU register number RECYC281), which uses the Bandera PURe15 technology. […] It was demonstrated that this recycling process is able to ensure that the level of migration of potential unknown contaminants into food is below the conservatively modelled migration of 0.1 μg/kg food. Therefore, the Panel concluded that the recycled PET obtained from this process 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.

This is a further step in Roboplast’ commitment to environmental sustainability combined with product and consumer safety, as evidenced by the full range of RoboGreen products.
