Recycling of TETRA PAK Aseptic Cartons
Aseptic packages are made of several laminated layers, including paper, aluminum and low-density polyethylene. High amounts of non-wood materials and lack of knowledge on the manufacturing of the package has made recycling aseptic packages an issue for the paper industry. The demand for high-grade fibers for recycling led paper mills to look for alternative solutions. Furthermore, studies on recycling aluminum and low-density polyethylene residuals at plastic recycling mills were held in Brazil and showed great results for both paper mills and plastic recyclers.
