Environment and circular economy transition in China


Bottle-to-Bottle Recycling of Shampoo Package

Commissioned by the program of German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), Waste to Resource: upgrading the value chain of packaging waste through improving collection and recycling in China of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) designed and piloted series of innovative technologies, inspiring the circular transformation of package sector in view of design for recycling and high-value added application of recycled materials.

Eco-design together with the high-value application of recycled plastic

Pump Head (by Berry): pure plastic, no metal spring inside, making recycling easier!

Bottle (by Henkel): made of 30% recycled HDPE, being the first case to realize “bottle to bottle” recycling of mixed-color shampoo packages.

Less Environmental Impacts

r-HDPE possess around 80% of fewer greenhouse gas emissions than virgin HDPE. Extending the cases to China’s home care and beauty care industry may reduce over 0.4 million tons of CO2e.
