Ovotherm’s deCON system for the ASEAN market
Safe and clear: egg packs made from 100% rPET
viscotec decontamination technology exceeds highest foodgrade standards like EFSA and FDA: 100% rPET flake for food and beverage packaging.
The basis of our work is a deep understanding of polymers and their recycling behaviour. Since several decades we have been in fruitful cooperation with recyclers worldwide, learning from and progressing with each of them.
From super-cleaning of post-consumer PET and HDPE for the food packaging market to iV increasing of rPET for special applications and high-end rPET sheet production - viscotec is providing top solutions to its customers. We understand polymers, we believe in recycling, and we have state-of-the-art technology. Let us share and grow our know-how together. For PET bottle to bottle recycling and recycling of polymers for non-food applications please visit the homepage of Starlinger recycling technology. If you are interested in food grade recycling of other polymers please let us know!

Do you produce recycled plastic for food contact applications? If so, different National legislations such as EU/EFSA, US FDA, Mercosur, Health Canada, Anvisa, Invima etc. define or recommend the legal framework.
Whatever your market requirements are, our super-cleaning technology fulfils the standard. 100% rPET flakes acc. to EFSA infants scenario (beverage and food packaging) and 100% rPET flakes acc. to US FDA guideline (for conditions C-H + J) give you highest flexibility in all markets worldwide. The viscotec deCON unit is the only equipment in the world which – till today – achieved more than 35 Positive Opinions for 100% super-clean rPET flake for direct food contact acc. to EFSA’s infants scenario. Hence, with viscotec equipment you produce rPET mono-layer sheet with 100% post-consumer material one the highest level of reliability and safety. Our outstanding cleaning efficiencies are simply the best in rPET flake recycling. In case of rHDPE for direct food contact, viscotec has the FDA LNO for 50% recycled content acc. to US FDA guideline (for conditions E-G).
