Denmark: large scale test by Arla and Südpack

The Denmark headquartered dairy cooperative Arla and the German company Südpack have started a large scale test in which plastic used for cheese production is finding new life. Using a pyrolysis process, the plastic is kept within the loop and recycled into new packaging instead of being sent to incineration, so reducing the overall need for virgin plastic as well as the carbon footprint. The pyrolysis process converts plastic waste into oil by exposing it to very high temperatures in a controlled environment. Arla and Südpack will be testing this new setup with 80 tonnes in 2023.
