FEA launches Code of Practice for PET aerosol dispenser recyclability

news item image
The European Aerosol Federation (FEA) has launched a voluntary initiative that intends to transparently demonstrate the aerosol industry's transition to fully recyclable plastic aerosol dispensers.
The trade association noted that the European Commission (EC) adoted a European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy in January 2018.
The EC is set to develop requirements to ensure all plastic packaging in the EU market is reusable or recyclable in an economically viable manner by 2030.
The FEA said: "Currently PET aerosols dispensers placed on the EU single market usually contain metal valve components. The European aerosol industry commits to replacing these with PET aerosol dispensers that contain no metal or non-floatable plastic components except PET, and which fully aligns to the European PET Bottle Platform (EPBP) Design for Recycling Guidelines.
"FEA's vision for plastic aerosols fits into this strategy," it added.
The FEA encouraged interested parties to contact it for more information at info@aerosol.org
