BERICAP leads the industry’s developments to tethered caps which remain firmly attached to the bottle after opening and during use and thus comply with the EU Directive 2019/904 which will come into force as of July 2024. The use of these caps protects the environment by recycling them together with the bottles and avoiding pollution from loose caps.
BERICAP is additionally involved in the development of solutions that decouple plastics production from virgin fossil feedstocks such as post-consumer recycled resins (PCR). The company works in partnership with experts worldwide to promote recycling. In the area of product development BERICAP focuses on eco-friendly product design, material reduction, lightweighting and recyclable solutions. For example, it has developed PCR industrial closures made from recycled plastic for appropriate customer applications.
