"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.
