Nestlé Waters is joining Carbios, L’Oreal, PepsiCo and Suntory Beverage & Food Europe (SBFE) to bring enhanced recycling technology designed and developed by CARBIOS to market on an industrial scale.

CARBIOS has developed an innovative process that breaks down PET plastic waste into its original components, which can be used to produce high quality PET plastic, equivalent to virgin PET. This proprietary technology can pave the way for 100% recycled PET content in new products and offers the potential to recycle PET plastics repeatedly.

It can help us to achieve Nestlé’s goal of increasing the amount of recycled plastic content in our bottles without compromising on quality and contribute to creating an environmentally sustainable world for the next generation.”
