National Recycling Week: ‘Recovery – A future beyond the bin’.

How is Qenos eXsource supporting this year’s initiative?

Qenos’ distribution business – eXsource – is working with suppliers and customers to introduce new polymers and modifiers to aid in the development of packaging products that can be recycled or include greater recycled polymer content.

This has been in response to the pledges made by some of the world's largest brands to have 100% of their packaging reusable or recyclable by 2025. Clearly, effective collaboration right through the supply chain will be required to meet these ambitious targets.

The team at eXsource are working closely with customers and brands to offer technical expertise and a broad product range that supports the development of packaging products within a circular economy. Here are some of its key areas of focus:

High-quality raw materials from recycled plastic: Repsol Recilex

eXsource this year introduced to its Australian and New Zealand customers Reciclex®, with many customers now trialling the material to displace virgin resin.

Repsol Reciclex® is a new material created from plastic waste that is incorporated into virgin resins and which maintain the same qualities, ensuring the material's consistency and functionality for its final application. The Repsol Reciclex® range manufactures high-quality raw plastic materials that incorporate a portion of post-consumer plastic that has completed its useful life and otherwise would end up in a landfill.
