What They Make

Inline Plastics packaging is designed to attractively merchandise products from produce, deli, bakery, grocery convenience store and food service industries. They specialize in solving problems related in these industries like improving shelf life of products and ensuring safety with tamper evident containers.  Although their packaging is crystal clear, it’s plenty green as well. As a company they are committed to the environment as well as quality.

How They Do It

Years ago, they converted all of their packaging to PET, the most recycled plastic in the world; however, that wasn’t good enough. Now they use DPET a material achieved through their unique proprietary process that bolsters the following claims:

  • It eliminates five heat stages of conventional APET sheet production
  • It decreases manufacturing energy consumption by 65%
  • It has a 25% lower carbon footprint than competing APET material
  • That footprint is equal to material containing 50% recycled PET form water & soda bottles
  • DPET scrap can be recycled more times than other containers and bottles
