Aptar CSP Technologies, part of AptarGroup and a leader in active material science solutions to ensure product protection, extend shelf life, and improve patient experience, in introducing its first-ever active bottle featuring post-consumer recycled (PCR) content. The new PCR active bottle is now a part of Aptar CSP Technologies’ Activ-Vial™ solutions portfolio.
As with the rest of the active packaging portfolio, the company’s proprietary 3-phase Activ-Polymer™ platform technology is fully integrated into the bottle to create a microclimate to protect against moisture and other environmental conditions. Unlike traditional packaging options, the technology co-molds highly engineered active particles into the bottle, scavenging moisture before it reaches the contents inside.
Incorporating PCR content into its Activ-Polymer™ solutions is a step toward materials circularity, as sustainability becomes increasingly important to brand owners and their customers in the probiotic and nutraceuticals space. The company also plans to introduce an active bottle with higher PCR content in the fourth quarter of this year.
