Bormioli Pharma and Loop Industries, Inc., a clean technology company, today announced that a pharmaceutical packaging bottle manufactured with 100% recycled virgin quality PET resin will be unveiled within the Bormioli booth at Pharmapack Europe 2024.

The pharmaceutical industry is increasingly recognising the importance of adopting sustainable practices and materials to reduce its environmental impact. Loop's 100% recycled virgin quality PET can help support pharmaceutical companies with a sustainable packaging alternative and address the growing demand for environmentally responsible choices in the industry. The Infinite Loop technology up-cycles the lowest quality PET and polyester fibre waste into 100% recycled virgin quality Loop PET resin. 

A recent test, executed by a worldwide leader in laboratory testing, confirms that Loop PET resin has successfully met the standards and requirements outlined by the EU Pharmacopeia (Ph.Eur. 3.1.15, Polyethylene Terephthalate for Containers for Preparations not for Parenteral Uses) and US Pharmacopeia (USP <661.1>, Plastic Materials of Construction) and is compliant for use in packaging applications in the pharmaceutical industry. Loop PET resin helps create circularity for low value waste while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and can save up to 360,000 tonnes of CO2 per year compared to virgin PET made from fossil fuels.

Bormioli Pharma’s EcoPositive offering, gathering low-impact packaging solutions, currently constitutes 50% of the Company’s standard catalogue, contributing to position itself among the players with the broadest sustainable offerings on the international market. 

“Through this collaboration with Loop we’re strengthening our role as a solid, quality and reliable partner for the pharmaceutical industry” stated Andrea Lodetti, CEO of Bormioli Pharma. “Loop Industries shares our values and commitment, and together we made available a new pharmaceutical-grade sustainable solution, showing even greater safety standards than traditional ones.”.
