48% of Brazilian Containers Are Recycled

    Brazil is a global standard for the recycling of materials, according to the executive director of the Brazilian Packaging Association (ABRE), Luciana Pelegrino.

    “We count on a solid foundation that gives continuity and growth to this activity,” she said.


    She states that recycling activities have expanded. “Industries have an economic interest, and the income generated by the sale of these materials returns to the market.”


    The plastics industry is one of those that invest the most in recycling. According to Pelegrino, 48% of plastic wrappers and containers are currently recycled.


    The director of the ABRE emphasizes the creativity with which Brazilian industry employs, for example, fresh coconut fibers.


    “Fresh coconut fibers are being used by the textile industry to manufacture cloth and by the automobile industry to produce automobile fabrics.”


    She points to investments made to recycle other materials, such as worn tires and milk cartons, and notes that Brazil is already exporting the technology that is utilized.
