Materials maker Selenis has renewed its Recyclass certifications for recycled content traceability.
The certifications certify the use of 30 percent and 50 percent post-consumer recycled content in their Eco Resins and “establish trust” in the firm’s recycled products, officials said in a news release.
Selenis commercialized its Eco Resins in late 2019. The materials can be made with up to 50 percent post-consumer recycled content. Last year, Selenis scaled up production of these sustainable resins to full production volumes and looked to guarantee traceability of these products by certifying them through Recyclass.
Officials said that manufacturers, brand owners, and retailers are increasingly looking for reliable and transparent certification. Recyclass certifications confirm that Selenis has all the required procedures to ensure traceability of recycled plastics into products. The certifications are owned by Plastics Recyclers Europe, managed by RecyClass and issued by recognized third-parties.
“With the renewal of the Recyclass certifications, Selenis proves once again that their sustainability claims are based on true circular solutions,” officials said.
Portalegre, Portugal-based Selenis makes specialty polyester, PET and copolyester resins. Also in 2021, the firm launched a line of copolyesters aimed at the kitchenware market.
Selenis is owned by investment firm IMG Group of Porto, Portugal. IMG also owns global polyester film producer Evertis and is a 50-50 partner with Alpek Group of Mexico in a PET bottle resin plant in Montreal.
