Geo-Tech Polymers and Intertek has received a letter of non-objection from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)to remove inks and coatings from plastics recycling it into clear reuse opportunities.

"We are excited to receive the NOL from the FDA​,” said Ron Whaley, president/CEO, Geo-Tech.

Our cleaning processes remove coatings, inks, pigments, paints and other surface contaminates providing our customers with the cleanest recycled plastics and will allow for food-grade plastics to return to the food-grade market in higher concentrations up to 100%​.”

The non-objection letter (NOL) applies to all grades of plastics previously certified as FDA approved.

Geo-Tech, a wholly owned subsidiary of Wastren Advantage of Piketon, transforms low-value plastics waste into high-quality products for financial and environmental benefit.

The company developed a patented process for removing coatings such as ink, chrome, paint, films and labels from used plastics prior to reprocessing.
