Circular evolution

We are part of the Iren Group and have been developing solutions for sorting and recycling post-consumer plastic packaging for over thirty years, working with EPR systems. (COREPLA, CORIPET, CONIP). We deal with the recycling of mixed and multilayer plastics, operating with quality systems certified by international bodies.

We develop innovations for sustainability by giving new life to plastic waste by transforming it into new raw materials. Responsible use of resources, optimisation and efficiency of processes, reduction of pollutant emissions: I.Blu's know-how and Iren's leadership accelerate the transition and decarbonisation

Our numbers

In Europe, only 37% of the more than 15 million tonnes (source: Eurostat) of plastic packaging released for consumption is recycled. Our mission is to turn the tide by exploiting the potential of plastic waste in a circular perspective, and to develop new solutions and applications for its recycling.

Our Products

We give new life to hard-to-recycle plastics by transforming them into new circular products, contributing to European recycling targets. With BLUPOLYMER®, BLUAIR® and BLU-C® we offer concrete solutions for the responsible use of raw materials, decarbonisation, reduction of pollutant emissions and optimisation of industrial processes.
