And here is the contribution from Utz:

At the FachPack 2013 and for the first time in Germany, the container specialist Georg Utz GmbH from Schüttorf introduced a container family comprising all sizes, which focuses on sustainability not only in production but also in its application. The plastic containers are therefore not only manufactured from new material but also from recycling material, if requested. Mixtures of new and used material are also possible.

The stability and longevity of containers consisting of recycling material should not differ significantly from those consisting of new material. Significant limitations are denoted by the colour choice, as the addition of mixed-colour recycling material does not result in clear colours. In all its versions, the container must always be compatible with conveyor systems.
