PLA bioplastics for a brighter future - TOMRA Talks at K 2022

All of you know Poly Lactic Acid, or PLA is biobased. Most of you also know that PLA is recyclable. But did you know Luminy PLA is actually recycled today? Using infrared IR technology, PLA plastic products can be easily sorted from other municipal plastic waste, and where PLA bottles and cups are exclusively used, the amount of PLA is sufficient to make it economically feasible to collect, sort, and clean the PLA.  

In this session, François de Bie, Senior Marketing and Supply Chain Director at TotalEnergies Corbion, will talk through how rPLA can help close the loop and improve the ecological credentials of bioplastic products.
