The European regulation on recycled materials, adopted by the European Union on 22 May 2018, aims to increase the percentage of plastic material recycling to 50% by 2025. Somater did not wait for the regulation to commit to the industrialisation of PCR (Post Consumer Recycled) materials. Somater already manufactures primary packaging in PETR (polyethylene terephthalate) and bio-sourced PE, a polymer made from sugar cane. Tests are also in progress for the manufacture of cosmetic, pharmaceutical, agro-food and industrial products using recycled PP (polypropylene) and PE (polyethylene). The rate of recycled material varies from 20% to 100%, depending on the application.
