PET, the polymer that goes for 100% recycling

Petcore Europe | Brussels | Permanent, Full-time

Published on 10 days ago

The polymer PET (polyethylene terephthalate), well-known from PET bottles, but also used for food trays and for film, is the polymer that leads the way when it comes to efficient collection, sorting and recycling. Petcore Europe is the association that for more than 25 years has been striving for this success.
Are you, like we are, convinced that plastics play a key role in our society ? Are you, like we are, convinced that plastics should and can be part of the circular economy ? Do you want to be the motor that makes this happen for PET ? Then this is an opportunity for you !

Petcore was founded in 1993. Representing the entire value chain of the polymer PET (polyethylene terephthalate), it is the place where all actors meet and cooperate to promote recycling and recyclability of the polymer.

The success of Petcore can be measured by the increase of PET recycling from nearly zero in 1993 to 60% in 2019. PET is already considered to be the most sustainable plastic, both by the plastics industry and by the public opinion. Yet at Petcore Europe we are committed to push its recycling up to 100%.

We have the expertise and the network, we need you in our team to make it happen.
