PRESS RELEASE // OCEAN WASTE PLASTIC
ReSea Project takes over the
collection of plastics from the ocean
Pack Tech has placed the collection of plastics from the oceans in a separate company called ReSea Project. Their main purpose is to remove plastic from the oceans.
OWP is still 1:1 = For every unit of packaging containing OWP, the same amount of plastic is removed from the oceans.
Pack Tech remains being responsible for the raw material, and to mix it with the right amount of additives to achieve the specification needed for each customer/packaging requirements.
Pack Tech has placed the collection of plastics from the oceans in a separate company called ReSea Project (a company owned by the same group behind Pack Tech A/S). ReSea Project now handles the collection of plastics generated by OWP, as well as the processing of the collected plastic as well.
Pack Tech wants to concentrate on their core business
This new set-up has worked for approx. 12 months, while ReSea Project has slowly taken over collection of the plastics. It has now been fully implemented as part of a desire in Pack Tech to be able to focus fully on the packaging itself, as the collection of plastic from the ocean has become incredibly extensive due to increasing market demand for OWP packaging.
“ReSea Project was founded with the sole purpose of removing plastic from the oceans, and as a natural part of their business model, it seemed logical for Pack Tech to let the collection of plastics from the oceans be transferred to ReSea Project. Sales of OWP packaging are generating a fairly significant amount of plastic that needs to be collected”
CHRISTIAN L. JENSEN, CEO OF PACK TECH A/S
