Introducing Silgan Dispensing’s PCR packaging solutions

6.3 billion metric tons of plastic waste resides in landfills, and this figure is expected to double by 2050. Many brands are increasingly seeking more sustainable packaging options—driven in large part by consumer demand. 88% less energy total is used for producing PCR vs, virgin materials.

Post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic is one-way brands can reach their packaging sustainability goals. PCR is made from previously used plastic diverted from landfills to be used in new products. PCR offers exciting new possibilities to reduce waste while still achieving the highest levels of performance.

With Silgan Dispensing’s PCR portfolio, brands get:

  • Broad range of market-leading dispensing solutions
  • Demonstrated expertise in manufacturing solutions with PCR resins
  • Industry-leading color library with more than 80 options
  • Reliable global supply chain with manufacturing sites in Europe
