"PET vs. Glass: Which Has a Lower Environmental Impact?"

Download the white paper to see which material has a lower environmental impact, according to a recent life-cycle assessment.

It’s not uncommon for PET to be compared to glass. Consumers consider glass to be a more sustainable alternative to plastic, while manufacturers use glass for thermally processed foods. However, ThermaSet® technology allows PET to be used in hot fill applications where glass was historically used. When ThermaSet was evaluated in a life-cycle assessment, its environmental impact was surprising. In this white paper, you’ll learn:

  • Trends and challenges that are pushing the plastic industry to evolve
  • The findings of a recent life-cycle assessment that evaluated the environmental impact of ThermaSet vs. glass
  • Talking points for starting conversations about using PET packaging for your products
