Eastar Renew 6763 is powered by Eastman’s molecular recycling technologies and is indistinguishable from Eastar 6763 copolyester. Sourcing Eastar Renew enables Pacur to certify that plastic waste is being diverted from landfills to produce new packaging. The amount of plastic waste diverted is tracked through an ISCC-certified mass balance accounting approach that allocates recycled content to Eastman Renew materials.
Eastman will start up the world’s largest material-to-material molecular recycling facility in Kingsport, Tenn., later this year. Molecular recycling empowers the healthcare industry to continue to put patient safety first while contributing to the elimination of plastic waste and driving the collection and recycling of hard-to-recycle materials to catalyze a circular economy.
Pacur’s use of Eastar Renew 6763 in sterile barrier packaging products is enabled by Pacur’s ISCC PLUS-certified facility. ISCC PLUS is a globally recognized, third-party certification system for tracking sustainable feedstocks through the supply chain.
“For more than 40 years, Pacur has earned the trust of medical device and packaging companies around the world through our ongoing commitment to quality, service and innovation,” says Jason Eckel, Pacur senior vice president of sales and marketing. “A key element of our innovation agenda is a commitment to investing in the developing of next-generation sustainability solutions. With the introduction of Pacur custom sheet and rollstock solutions leveraging Eastar Renew 6763, Pacur and Eastman are enabling progress toward a circular economy.”
