The difference between “PCR” and “PIR” in plastic recycling
With the continuous progress of the Sustainable Development Goals, more and more people are familiar with and pay attention to the recycled plastic “PCR”, but many people do not know that “PCR” has a brother named “PIR”, although the abbreviation is only one letter different, but there are many other aspects of the difference. Today, Guoheng technology and you will be introduced to “PCR” and “PIR” what is the difference.
One: What is PCR?
PCR, or Post-Consumer Recycled material. It usually refers to the waste plastics produced after circulation, consumption and use. After physical or chemical recycling, they can become valuable raw materials for industrial production and realize resource recycling.
Two: What is PIR?
PIR, the full name is Post-Industrial Recycled material, or we often say industrial plastics recycled material.
Three: What is the difference between PCR and PIR?
1. Different sources. PCR is derived from waste plastic produced by lunch boxes, shampoo bottles, mineral water bottles, washing machine buckets, etc., which can be used to make new packaging materials after reprocessing. PIR generally refers to the spout, sub-brand and defective products produced during injection molding products in factories. Materials produced in industrial production processes or processes are commonly known as spout materials and waste materials. Recycle directly from the factory and reuse.
2, the amount of recycling is different. In terms of recycling amount, because PCR is the plastic after consumption, recycling amount is much larger than PIR.
3. Processing quality. Generally, the processing quality of PIR plastics is higher than that of PCR plastics.
