RETRAY is the Ecosense Foundation’s certification scheme to consolidate a circular economy model in the value chain of thermoformed PET packaging by quantifying the content of recycled material, from the tray-to-tray circuit and other sources, in accordance with the EN 15343 standard and the verification of its recyclability according to the guidelines published by the foundation.

Evertis, present in the polymer industry since 1959, is specialized in the production of monolayer and multilayer PET film for food packaging applications. The purpose of the company has always been to offer packaging solutions that close the loop and contribute to a circular economy in the PET thermoform sector. Their sustainability strategy integrates the UN Sustainable Development Goals and boosts the product innovation in terms of circularity, recyclability and eco-design, as is the case of their latest product launches, EcobarTM and EcosealTM.

EVERTIS’s commitment to the circular tray-to-tray model promoted by the foundation dates back to 2019, when the company obtained the ECOSENSE certification for the first time. Under the RETRAY scheme, heir to ECOSENSE, a Certification Entity has audited the processes of film manufacturing, verifying compliance with the following requirements of the RETRAY Procedure for sheet producers:

Evertis has the objective of increasing the recycling content incorporated in their products and reaching an average of 50% by 2023.

The ultimate purpose of RETRAY is to increase the volume of waste from the tray-to-tray circuit to be recycled. The consolidation of the circular model requires quadrupling the recycling facilities, improving collection and sorting and achieving a better quality of the recycled product; Investment, innovation and collaboration in the value chain are key to make this achievable by 2030. Thanks to companies such as EVERTIS, the PET thermoform sector is closer to meeting the ambitious targets set by the European Commission on packaging and packaging waste.

The percentage content of recycled plastic incorporated into the film manufactured over a certain period of analysis, in accordance with the EN 15343 standard.

Evertis has the objective of increasing the recycling content incorporated in their products and reaching an average of 50% by 2023.

The ultimate purpose of RETRAY is to increase the volume of waste from the tray-to-tray circuit to be recycled. The consolidation of the circular model requires quadrupling the recycling facilities, improving collection and sorting and achieving a better quality of the recycled product; Investment, innovation and collaboration in the value chain are key to make this achievable by 2030. Thanks to companies such as EVERTIS, the PET thermoform sector is closer to meeting the ambitious targets set by the European Commission on packaging and packaging waste.

ABOUT US

Evertis, present in the polymers industry since 1959 and pioneers in PET film extrusion, is a specialist in the production of barrier films for food packaging, and other packaging applications. With a wide variety of tailor-made solutions in their portfolio, Evertis focuses on supplying films that ensure product safety whilst closing the loop. Evertis envisions a future with increased utilisation of recycled content in their films, greater recyclability of their products and the lowest feasible carbon footprint.

Being a global business, with manufacturing sites in Portugal, Brazil, Italy and Mexico, Evertis is devoted to playing a role in society’s collective response to the global plastic waste challenge, through recycling education programs as well as jointly working across the value chain to create tangible solutions. Their mission is to develop future-fit packaging that meets the highest expectations of clients and end consumers in terms of food safety, functionality and circularity.

RETRAY is the Ecosense Foundation’s certification scheme to consolidate a circular economy model in the value chain of thermoformed PET packaging by quantifying the content of recycled material, from the tray-to-tray circuit and other sources, in accordance with the EN 15343 standard and the verification of its recyclability according to the guidelines published by the foundation.

Evertis, present in the polymer industry since 1959, is specialized in the production of monolayer and multilayer PET film for food packaging applications. The purpose of the company has always been to offer packaging solutions that close the loop and contribute to a circular economy in the PET thermoform sector. Their sustainability strategy integrates the UN Sustainable Development Goals and boosts the product innovation in terms of circularity, recyclability and eco-design, as is the case of their latest product launches, EcobarTM and EcosealTM.

EVERTIS’s commitment to the circular tray-to-tray model promoted by the foundation dates back to 2019, when the company obtained the ECOSENSE certification for the first time. Under the RETRAY scheme, heir to ECOSENSE, a Certification Entity has audited the processes of film manufacturing, verifying compliance with the following requirements of the RETRAY Procedure for sheet producers:

-

Rationalising the use of energy and natural resources and act on the processes to optimise and reduce consumption.

-

Reducing waste production by increasing and promoting the recycling and recovery of materials whenever possible.

-

Guaranteeing that the materials and procedures used don’t present any risk to the health of workers and the environment.

-

Ensuring that the use of materials, resources and the incorporation of safe and innovative technologies promote environmental protection and minimise environmental impacts.

-

Training and involving employees in conscious and responsible action, given the importance of everyone in ensuring product safety and improving environmental performance.

-

Implementing good practices in order to comply with applicable legislation and other requirements that lead to environmental preservation.

Evertis has the objective of increasing the recycling content incorporated in their products and reaching an average of 50% by 2023.
