NextLife Enterprises LLC reports its post-consumer polypropylene and polystyrene resins have received clearance from federal agency Health Canada for use in food contact applications. They have already met U.S. Food and Drug Administration requirements for such applications.
The Boca Raton, Fla., firm says the resins are cleared for thermoformed and injection molded goods. It marks the first time that post-consumer recycled resins received such approval in Canada. NextLife claims the 100 percent recycled resins perform comparable to virgin PP and PS in a wide range of consumer applications.
“This expands the target market for our resins and demonstrates the success of our growth strategy which is partly based on securing approvals for our resins in different markets around the globe as we have in the U.S. and now in Canada,” stated NextLife CEO Ronald Whaley in a news release.
