Based on the requirements of Directive (EU) 2019/904 of the European Parliament and of the Counci meeting, realized on 5 June 2019, by 2025 all bottles produced from PET must contain at least 25% of recycled plastic material, and by 2030 - at least 30% of recycled plastic material.

Special attention is paid to the recycling of plastic packaging, which is 61% of all plastic waste, of which only about 30% is recovered. Compared to other materials used in the production of packaging such as cardboard, metal, glass, plastic packaging is recycled at the lowest rate.
According to the approved EU plan, the recycling of 50% of plastic packaging should be increased by 2025, and by 2030 it should reach up to 55%.


At ITD, we take over responsibility for protecting the environment and the climate, and we have always worked to ensure that the packaging which we produce is optimal in terms of weight and recyclability, as well as optimizing the cost of its packaging and transportation:

  • Lightweighting of all standard preforms;
  • Lightweighting of PEND packaging by installing of new production equipment;
  • Significant reduction of the used colorants;
  • Optimizing the shape and the size of packages, which allows to reduce the transporting and the storage costs for our customers;
  • Frequently usage of the packaging materials;
  • Available conditions for the use of recycled materials – PET, PP. PEND in our packaging;
  • Accomplished projects for environment protection;
  • Packaging with one component content- usage of only one type of material, which increases the efficiency of the recycling.


The RPET material which we use in our production is manufactured in ITD. The continuous process of optimization and the capacity expansion are part of our priorities. One of our big projects is the investment in the Starlinger line.

The line we have chosen and installed in our production is nature-friendly - "Super Clean" technology, which is its main advantage.

The transition to a circular European market is based on the recycling of the plastics. The main idea is to recycle the materials from which the product is made as much as possible.

100% of ITD production is recyclable, which seriously reduces environmental pollution.


By increasing the recycling rate, Europe can separate its dependence on natural resources and work for a more sustainable and autonomous economy. The determining factors of this transition are technological innovations, the design of recyclable packaging, increased separate collection and optimized recycling processes. Ensuring a sustainable future for plastics depends on the increased penetration of recycled materials by creating of new products.
