Making plastic packaging too good to waste
–Ludo Gielen - CEO

In a world that depends upon logistics and transport, all shipped in packaging materials, we need to reduce the environmental stress caused by packaging waste. At Schoeller Allibert, we believe RTP (returnable plastic packaging) systems are the answer. We are at the forefront of this revolutionary development.

In Practice:

  • We produce 100% recyclable packaging. We can also make food contact recycled products thanks to the EFSA positive opinion.
  • We design our products in order to optimise their lifespan ( up to 10 years in industrial conditions).
  • Our production processes contribute to CO2 reduction.
  • Using our products guarantees safe transport of your goods (UN homologation) by road, rail, and air.

Recycle your packaging

Schoeller Allibert offers its clients recycling knowledge and services. We offer full support and can take care of collecting, recycling and re-using returnable packaging materials that are ready for replacement. The products that are recycled at our facilities can even be safely used as food packaging.For this purpose, EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) provided scientific advice and approval to our recycling process installed on three of our sites in the Netherlands, Germany, and Spain.
