Non-conforming materials are melted back into resin pellets and reused by Berry. By performing in-house reprocessing, Berry can reuse materials at a lower cost and reduce raw material waste. This kind of process is commonly used for commercial films.
Berry invests in our own post-consumer reprocessing facilities to sort and reprocess already used plastic substrates. Post-consumer reprocessing helps conserve valuable, natural resources.
