Pharma Blister Recycling – from concept to a value chain approach

Pharma film producers Bilcare Research and Perlen Packaging have developed the recycling of PVC films used with aluminium foil for packaging medicines. With coordination by the AGPU (PVC and Environment Working Group) and the sector’s recycling organisation VinylPlus, the companies have organised a recycling network across the value chain, to turn waste into PVC recyclate for building profiles and aluminium for the auto industry.
