A Win-Win for Brands and Consumers: Recyclability and a Premier Dispensing Experience

Approved by RecyClass, Aptar’s SimpliCycle™ valve helps brands achieve their sustainability goals while maintaining the same high performance of silicone valves.

Aptar Closures has been the industry leader in providing flow control dispensing solutions for more than 25 years. Its award-winning SimpliCycle recyclable valve is driving sustainability to the forefront of packaging innovation, and in September 2022, RecyClass confirmed its full compatibility with polypropylene (PP), polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) recycling streams. RecyClass is a non-profit, cross-industry initiative facilitating the transition toward a circular plastic economy in Europe. The organization published Design for Recycling Guidelines and, in partnership with independent laboratories, evaluates a variety of products to assess their ability to be recycled.

The RecyClass approval provides brands with confirmation that Aptar closures featuring the SimpliCycle valve can directly contribute toward their full packaging recyclability goals. As a result, this summer, SimpliCycle has launched in a variety of dispensing closures with brands in several consumer end markets in Europe.

In addition to being approved by RecyClass in Europe, SimpliCycle also received the Critical Guidance Recognition from the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) in North America in 2021. These achievements are evidence of Aptar’s continued dedication to collaborating with our customers to bring more sustainable products to market, enabling brands to contribute to a more circular economy. This is good news for brands, fillers, recyclers, and consumers, all of whom are looking for plastic packaging to be more sustainable.
